People often wonder why life is precious. That’s because it’s hard to find reasons when you’re part of a world that’s full of war, famine, and hatred. We think people sabotage themselves in life, so they’re ready for death when it comes.
We say a lot of things to people when they’re about to die, but those words usually go in one ear and out the other because it’s too hard for us to believe that death could come at any time.
There are many reasons why life is precious. These are only a few:
1) You never know when your last day on earth will be.
Your life could end today, tomorrow or next year. We live our lives as if we’ll be here forever and waste precious time doing meaningless things. Always remember this: your last day on earth could come at any time. Treat every day like it’s your last and make it count.
A lot of people say that life is too short so they eat, talk, and sleep with people they don’t even care about. They do this because they’re scared to be alone. When you’re alone and there’s no one to love you, the feeling of being unwanted can be the hardest to bare.
2) You may never see your family again.
A lot of people miss out on the chance to spend time with their families. They live day after day without taking any notice of the people they love. They don’t even take notice when their loved ones pass away and remember them only because it’s their duty as human beings to do so. As humans, we should always cherish our loved ones and those who are important to us.
3) No matter how hard you try, nothing is ever good enough.
People are often too hard on themselves and always find one reason or another to think that they’re not good enough. If you’re always unhappy with yourself, you’ll feel unloved. Life is hard enough as it is without picking away at the things you can’t change. If you want to be happy, accept yourself for who you are and don’t blame others for your failures.
4) You may never get a second chance at love.
Sometimes, the things we value the most are not kept safe or close enough to us. We take these things for granted and don’t realize how much they mean to us until we lose them. If you’re not lucky enough to fall in love with the right person, you might be too afraid or too late to start something new. Don’t let this happen… Cherish your chances of finding true love and don’t be afraid of redoing what you’ve done before. You never know, you may find that second chance at love after all.
5) You may never do what you always wanted to do in life.
Don’t be afraid to take chances, because you may never know what’ll happen. The worst thing that could happen is that you fail, but think of it this way: at least you’ll know if it’s really what you want to do. You can’t succeed in life if you don’t try. If you follow your dreams, however long it takes, you’ll find yourself opening new doors along the way. Even if your dreams fall apart into pieces when they’re ripped from your arms, don’t give up on them. Just pick up the pieces and build a new dream out of them until one day…you might just find yourself living them.
6) You may miss out on the chance to learn something new.
You’ll never grow if you don’t stay curious and open to learning. Learn something new every day and never stop. You’ll never know what you could’ve become if you hadn’t taken the chance to learn something new. Life is too short to waste time without doing anything that’s going to make it count…
7) You may never see a rainbow again.
No matter how hard you try, you won’t be able to recreate a time when there was a rainbow in the sky… Live in the moment, because you really don’t know what tomorrow will bring…
8) You may never be able to do what you always wanted to do.
Don’t be afraid to try and fail. People who are afraid of failure are often the ones who eventually succeed. Don’t live your life on auto-pilot and don’t let things get to your head. It’s better to fail now and then learn what not to do in life than it is too late. If you want something bad enough, you’ll find a way… People who give up after one failure often start succeeding later on when they’re more determined and focused.
9) You may never be able to hold onto the one special person you love most in life.
Usually, people spend a lot of time looking for love from the wrong kind of people. They’re always afraid that they’ll lose the person they love most in life and never stop searching for it. People like this often live their whole lives not realizing that they already have everything they need in their hearts and are just too scared to accept it. This is one problem that you can’t fix by yourself…
10) You may never see your dreams become a reality.
Sometimes, we waste our time doing things we don’t want to do and forget that there’s more to life than what we see right in front of us. Dreams are a lot scarier than they look. While it’s easy to lose or give up on dreams, you’ll never know what they’re really worth if you don’t try. When you’re ready to give up on your dreams, always remember this: giving up is not really giving in. It’s simply accepting that it’s finally time to move on and not trying any longer.
11) You may never be able to finish what you start.
The worst thing that could happen is that we could never finish a project or a task because we got lazy and gave up too soon. The only way to get through the hardest parts of a task is by taking one step at a time… We may never finish what we started and this is okay, but it’s best to always try and fulfil the things we’ve set out to do.
