Good day dear readers! I hope my post finds you in good health. Today I choose another word we can all think about, the deeper, the better. This word is ”Life”. It is an old and well-known word and we all have one but very few take time, even a little, to think if they really cherish it as they should – theirs and also the life of others.
Life is precious, essential and yet, fragile. I decided to use Life as the word of my small essay today because of a recent experience. I was on the way to a nice place where, together with my family, we wished to visit some historical heritage spots and enjoy some sunshine. On the road leading to the town that was our destination, on a bridge road, there was a blockage. I thought it is just something small, insignificant. But I had the bad idea of looking through the car when we got close and there was someone lying on a side of this upper road with blood around and some para-medics already trying the life-saving maneuvers. My good humour decreased to 0 in one second and I could only say a quick prayer that they manage to save that person. That person was riding a motorbike and who knows whose fault it was…Unfortunately, later, on the radio, in the news they reported that that person died.
I wish not to ruin your positive mood but I tell you like I would tell my family – LIFE is extremely precious and fragile, do not put it to risk anymore! Without Life, without health & safety, we have nothing. Life gives us the freedom for everything. I think you know enough about this for sure but with every sunrise or sunset, take extra 5min. to meditate and focus on yourselves – thank God or whoever for all the good in your Life and say ”forgive me” towards those to whom maybe you did something wrong. Be happy for your Life and for everything you have- non-physical, mental, physical, etc. Cleaning up a bit your mind and reminding yourself about the important things is a good self-awareness exercise that I also try to do as often as I can. Now, in this epidemy-situation, our freedom is limited but you can do a lot even at home, in your balcony, in your building/house outer space. Stay emotionally-fit and healthy and put a bigger value on your Life, day by day; respect yourselves and do not tolerate a lack of respect towards you from anyone. The fact that you live is the biggest proof of God’s/Buddha’s/etc., parents’ and remaining family’s love for you and everything you mean or represent.
As this is starting to get long and many of you, to whom I send my best thoughts of health and happiness for the special Catholic Easter days, can have Easter eggs waiting to be coloured, eaten or decorated, I shall try to finish my little story with thoughts on Life. Honour your LIFE, be grateful to those who created you spiritually & physically, take good care of your health, feed yourselves with natural stuff, sleep enough, work for ethical people/ organisations, keep music in your life – do whatever you do, but always remembering that your LIFE is precious, that is divine and amazing and take care of it! Lots of love & good thoughts from your friend, Josephina 🙂 🙂
P.S. Maybe the photo can inspire you – it is a magical spot on the island of Thassos, Greece.
