Tomorrow may never come

“Tomorrow is never promised to anyone, so dance until your side hurts; say I love you to those you love; for tomorrow may never come.”

This is one of the most favorite quotes I've heard and just looking at it gives a deep meaning of life and the people we love. How many of us slow down this hectic life style to look around and value the people around our lives? How many of us are thankful for people who are in our life and help us to be who we are? 

No life is perfect and we all play a part to make things right. We work hard to be better person or to be a better professional, and in this chase there's competition around us. Life becomes hectic and stressed and our family and children  becomes our strength who would silently help us to become a better person in the society. These people who are close to you will be with you in all times, without complaining and expecting nothing in return except your well being. With the busy and hectic life style we lead nowadays have made us forget to value the people in our life, to make them feel love in return and have taken them, their love to us for granted. We never stop to think how they feel inside or their needs or what their feelings are.......


Our kids will want us to play with them or just to be with us. Maybe a little help in their school work or the new science project, which is around the corner, or they simply want to watch  cartoon with us while eating popcorn. Have you noticed  how much have  they grown up? Did you notice your son can ride his bike alone or did you notice your daughter playing the piano beautifully?  Have you noticed that their interests and hobbies have changed since the last time you talked to them?  Have you noticed that you have distanced from your children? When was the last time you hugged your kids and let them know how much you love them?

It is the same with your spouse. He/ She would want you to spend time with you. Talk about the past memories or the future plans or would just love to watch a movie with you or go out for a romantic dinner once in a while. When was the last time you gave your full attention to your spouse, listening with all heart what he/she has to say? Did you notice the grey hair which has come up in his/her hair or were you too busy to notice? When was the last time you told your wife/ husband that you love her/him and how thankful you are to have him/her in your life?

When was the last time you gave your dog a bath and made him feel like part of the family or played ball with him or listened to his little whines asking for a biscuit at tea time?
What if you loose your spouse tomorrow? What if you loose your child? What if your dog dies tomorrow? What if the most unexpected happens?  What if....

How would you live with the dilemma of not letting them feel how you felt for them or how much you loved them? Every single living moment in your life you will regret of your own behavior towards them. The memories of them will haunt you forever and every passing second you will think of things you had in mind and heart to say and how nice to see a smile on them or to hear them saying the same words in return.

Life is full of surprises and unexpected events and no tomorrow is promised to us. Don't wait till tomorrow to tell people in your life how much you love them and want them. Start it today, now it self.....call your wife/ husband and tell them those magic words and do the same to your kids, your dog and all others in your family who silently were there for you in all times.

It's easy to get so caught up in earning a living that we forget how to live. We can forget what is and who is really important. Thank you for this eloquently written reminder.

Thank you all for your wonderful comments. Tomorrow is never promised to any of us so it is always better to say the simple word of love and appreciation to the people in your life today it self .
