Live for today, for tomorrow is promised to no-one

Hello semua... Vee tak jadi bercuti seketika sebab Vee masih ada waktu nak ber'blogging'. This morning Vee dapat satu email yang Vee rasa menarik untuk dikongsi bersama. =)

Vee pernah cakap pada si dia...
"Saya hargai setiap masa saya dengan awak. Walaupun 5 minit, saya rasa waktu tu patut diisi sebaiknya sebab kita takkan tahu apa yang akan jadi pada masa akan datang. Mungkin ajal saya esok, mungkin dengan kuasa Tuhan, esok saya ditakdirkan jatuh cinta pada orang lain, mungkin awak jatuh cinta pada orang lain. Saya hargai setiap masa saya dengan awak sebab kalau saya tak hargai setiap masa tu, kalau apa2 jadi pada hubungan kita, saya mesti akan kesal..."

So, to all of my readers... A story to share... (copy paste from the email that I've received this morning)

A friend of mine opened his wife's underwear drawer and picked up a silk paper wrapped package:

'This, - he said - isn't any ordinary package.'

He unwrapped the box and stared at both the silk paper and the box.

'She got this the first time we went to New York , 8 or 9 years ago. She has never put it on , was saving it for a special occasion.

Well, I guess this is it.

He got near the bed and placed the gift box next to the other clothing he was taking to the funeral house, his wife had just died.

He turned to me and said:

'Never save something for a special occasion.

Every day in your life is a special occasion'.

I still think those words changed my life.

Now I read more and clean less.

I sit on the porch without worrying about anything.

I spend more time with my family, and less at work.

I understood that life should be a source of experience to be lived up to, not survived through.

I no longer keep anything.

I use crystal glasses every day...

I'll wear new clothes to go to the supermarket, if I feel like it.

I don't save my special perfume for special occasions, I use it whenever I want to.

The words 'Someday.... .' and ' One Day...' are fading away from my dictionary....

If it's worth seeing, listening or doing, I want to see, listen or do it now...

I don't know what my friend's wife would have done if she knew she wouldn't be there the next morning, this nobody can tell.

Each day, each hour, each minute, is special.

Live for today, for tomorrow is promised to no-one.
