Yesterday, my little brother turned 20. He was, is, and forever will be the baby of the family. This only got me thinking… Yes we live our lives so carelessly. Tomorrow is always in a far away land. We run always planning and envisioning the future, the tomorrow. And, like a grammar teacher told me once “future is not a tense, it is just a modal”.
We are not growing younger, yes… We may live longer now but that does not change the fact that we spend all our present living for a tomorrow that may never come. I feel like I should stop for a few moments and say something about it. It is so hard to stop it, I know, but after all the things that happened this last years in my life. Not say it, no think about it… I don’t know… I might regret not to speak my mind while I can.
I will quote Ke$ha here ” ‘Cause no one’s getting out alive. All the gold on Earth, it won’t buy time”. Life is a precious thing but it is fragile and ethereal. If you have a religion, you have the relieve of believing in an after life. However, everyone is afraid of death. The only thing that is absolutely true and unstoppable is the thing we fear the most. We live fearing our demise, but we cannot stop postponing evething for a tomorrow … maybe thinking that death only comes for those who have not plan anything … for the ones who are mindless about tomorrow and they like to enjoy the present.
I will stop my depressing philosophical rambling. I will take a few days off. I will stop dreaming about the future and I will enjoy the present. I have some writing in my head and I want to get it right so I can put it into paper. Next week, I will go back to study… coding and web design, this time.
I think I will come around soon but if I don’t. I wish you all a happy holidays, whatever you religious believes are… I wish you a beautiful week. Until next time!
