In one of the last episodes of Desperate Housewives we learnt that nothing in this life will be here forever. We mostly recognize someone or something and how special it was, when it’s gone. But why can’t we appreciate things when they are in our life? Why do we always want to have something we can’t have?
Certainly life is not easy. Some people come and go, and we want constancy. So when we reach the point to let someone into our life, we never think about when he or she won’t be with us anymore. When time passes by and some aren’t asked if they want to go, they just have to. Sometimes it is an accident, sometimes a disease and sometimes a crime. We can’t predict the future, we can’t see what will come and when it will come. So we think not to think about it will give us time. Time is all we have, we think we still have enough, but we all also know how fast it can rush. We see it how fast our children grow, when we first get grey hair or losing it, we see it when there are not enough candles fitting on the cake, and when people around us leave.
No, life is not easy. But it all shows that we are growing, that we are changing from minute to minute, second to second. We look the same because we see ourselves everyday but in the inside we know we are changing and so everything around is. It’s not bad, it would be bad if everything would standing still. Even if we pretend to want that. But wouldn’t it be also boring if nothing would happen? If we had nothing to tell? No, of course not. The world is turning, and so do we. If we want or not. That’s fact, that’s life. And therefore we don’t know what will happen next. But what we can do is to take the things we have, appreciate them and take them not for granted. It’s a gift being surrounded by the people we like, our family and friends. They help us going through life, they are on our side. We don’t want to loose them, so we don’t think about what would be if anything bad would happen to them. We want to protect them, being there for them in every moment of their life. We don’t want them to suffer or to see us suffer because that again would cause a circle.
We saw not just on Desperate Housewives, how soon a loved one can be gone and how hard it is to handle. He or she then only lives in our memory. That is heaven for me. When you leave the world as human being but still be alive in the persons you loved, that gives you some kind of immortality. People who always did bad thing to other people have no one who think about them, when they passed away - and that is hell for me. So if you have people who love you, nothing really bad can happen to you. We don’t want to think about it, and everyone sees it differently but I enjoy every single minute of my life. Doing the things I want to, with the people I want to. Nothing is for granted, not even life. It’s the greatest gift we have, let us appreciate it.
