What Matters Most
"Life is all about LOVE". How far do you agree with this statement?
Finally caught up with PDL, love this DAY16 so gonna summarize and share with you what I learn today:
#1 The best use of life is LOVE
#2 The best expression of love is TIME
#3 The best time of love is NOW
Time for a little reflection. Why are we studying now? Why do we have work after we graduate? To earn money? To eat and have a house to stay in? Yes and no. Personally, I think most of us will prefer a warm HOME than a luxurious HOUSE, no? No because some greedy ones (like me, want BOTH). haha. anyway, continue reading...
" I have been at the bedside of many people in their final moments, when they stand on the edge of eternity, and I have never heard anyone says, "Bring me my diplomas! I want to look at them one more time. Bring me my awards, my medals, that diamond ring, that baby Lexus I was given." When life on earth is ending, people don't surround themselves with objects. What we want around us is people - people we LOVE and have relationships with." So, why should God give you another day if you're going to waste it? Think about it... =)
Quote another interesting paragraph from Rick Warren: TIME is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can't make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you'll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time. Hope this will be a constant reminder to us all that we should value our time, and be wise in spending them with our loved ones.. =)
Lastly, why is NOW the best time to express love? Because you don't know how long you will have the opportunity. Circumstances change. People die. Children grow up. You have no guarantee of tomorrow. If you want to express love, you had better do it now.. If there are certain reasons you just cant love someone, maybe the first step is try to forgive him/her, let go of the past, and welcome him back into your life as a new person? Guess it takes TWO TO TANGO.
Good luck to all is sharing your love with each other~ Life is beautiful, flash a smile to a stranger and it might change his day beautifully =) Something beautiful for us to remember: Relationships take time and effort, and the best way to spell love is "T-I-M-E." May peace be with you all (^_^)
