A couple of days ago, I witnessed a minor accident on the road. That incident just reminded me again of one thing that I haven't talked in my postings - human is a fragile creature.
Slip two steps of the stairs and we could break our ankles. Have someone around us who by mistake swings his/her arm around our faces and we might break our noses or injure our teeth. We could by mistake fall down on the street and have a truck pass over us. The point is that in a split second, collateral damage could happen to us.
Of course, with minor injuries, you could simply go to doctor and have it fixed, but how about the people who are financially weak. Could they spend USD 5000 for a broken hand easily?
Life is Fragile, folks. There is nothing you could do to avoid what is bound to happen to us physically. If it is meant to happen, then it will happen, no matter how hard you try to avoid. A person sitting inside a coffee shop at the corner of the street could be smashed to death by a driver who in a split second mis-steer the car into the shop shattering half the building. Can you keep avoiding such things and actually live a life? No.
I am not going to talk on "how you could avoid such damage in life" today, because no one can. Not even me. I have faced my own unexpected damages, but the questions are...
DO WE STOP LIVING BECAUSE OF THAT?
DO WE BECOME SO RECKLESS THAT WE ARE NOT GRATEFUL ON WHAT WE ALREADY HAVE?
ARE WE SO BLIND THAT WE DON'T SEE AROUND US?
Let's Be Grateful.
If you have a perfectly formed healthy body, be grateful for it, take care of it. Let's not complain about small things in life which may not matter in a few years. Life is too precious, your body is too precious. Take care of it.
I have read a saying somewhere: Life is fragile and no matter how much we fight to control its outcome, all we can do is live in the moment.
How could we live in the moment? Love what you do, be grateful for what you have, share what you could, be kind to others, focus on the best in life, try to reduce negativity towards others in your life, and the most important thing is to understand that no matter how bad things happen in life, it is actually to teach us to bring out the best in us. Keep the best inside you, so that when life squeezes you hard, the best is bound to come out still :)
Be grateful, folks...and take care of yourselves because you are special!
