when i am almost dead, i find that i forget how to enjoy my life
i remembered this article when watching the movie of 'click' The main character is bored and frustrated with all the hardships in his life. His problems are solved as he gets an electronic device. once he clicks it, he can skip the part that he dislikes. No more traffic jams. No more conflicts between his wife and him. After that, he found that there's something wrong since the electronic device works itself. Just with a blink of eye, he is almost dead. luckly it's a just a movie. the main character is given 1 more chance to restart his life.
In other words, as in reality, we are lucky and at the same time unlucky, compared to the main character. we can't go back to our past. Noone can do tat. Meanwhile, we are lucky too because we are still alive! It's time for us to appreciate people or thing around us. Time for us to foster relationship with God. Time for us to enjoy our life. When we are in the hardship, perhaps we should stop for a while. Take a deep breath and move on.
Breathing is a blessing too. Don't u think?
