Life is short and you only live once. Make a collection of memories you can be proud of. Live life the way you want to. Do the things you have always wanted to do. The things you love.
Nothing lasts forever, except memories.
Your life is made up of moments. And whether you know it or not, whether you like it or not, every moment, every experience affects your life in who you are and who you will become. You have defining moments in your life when your whole life changes or something dramatic happens that changes your life path.
These defining moments, these meaningful experiences stand out in your memory. Many of them owe a great deal to chance. These moments seem to be the product of fate or luck or maybe a higher power’s interventions. You can not control them.
Humans, not places, make memories.
You will have this one moment where your basic right to live is questioned. This moment is life-changing. This specific moment, usually, can be a child of a plethora of emotions. The moment could be born from wonder, ecstasy, happiness, or simply from sorrow, anxiety, fear or pain.
This moment makes you reflect on your past and makes you wonder if you will have a future – dead or alive. Your mind wanders into the realm of the past and sinister future, you choose to be in the present.
You compel your mind to fixate on the moment you are having – right now, right there – because you rather opt for the horrifying present than the past or future.
You want to freeze time. You want to fade away. You question yourself why all this is happening to you. Why me? You break down. You become the burden, the anomaly, the misfit. You failed.
This feeling assaults you. As the night goes on, you speculate, unable to fall asleep. Your speculation gets worse resulting in numerous sleepless nights.
This moment changes your beliefs, yours thoughts, notion, and opinion. It changes both everything and nothing. Incapable of doing anything to fix it, you let it go. You slip away. You let fate handle everything.
There are moments in life which you want to be everlasting moments.
