Later

The day barely started that…

It was already 6:00 pm… 

Barely Monday and it was already Friday… 

and the month is already over… 

and the year is almost done… 

and already 40, 50 or 60 years of our life have passed… 

and we come to the realization that we have lost our parents, friends, and realize that it’s too late to turn back time…
So… 

Let’s try regardless, to fully take advantage of our remaining time… 

Let’s not stop looking for activities that we enjoy… 

Let’s put colour in our cloudy days… 

Let’s smile at the little things in life that put some balm in our heart.

And regardless, we must continue to take advantage or the serenity with our remaining time. 

Let’s try to eliminate the “after”… 

I’ll do it after… 

I’ll say it after… 

I’ll think about it after…

We leave everything to later as if “after” was ours. 

As what we don’t understand is that: 

after, the coffee will be cold… 

after, priorities change… 

after, the charm is gone… 

after, health has gone… 

after, the kids grew up… 

after, pour parents get older… 

after, promises are forgotten… 

after, days become nights… 

after, life will be over… 

and after, it’s often too late.
So… 

Don’t leave anything for later… 

While we’re always waiting for later, we can lose the best moments, the best experience, the best friends, the best family… 

The day is today… The instant is now…
