I had always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die. First of all, that one second isn't a second at all, it stretches on forever, like an ocean of time... For me, it was lying on my back at Boy Scout camp, watching falling stars... And yellow leaves, from the maple trees, that lined my street... Or my grandmother's hands, and the way her skin seemed like paper... And the first time I saw my cousin Tony's brand new Firebird... And Janie... And Janie... And... Carolyn. I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me... but it's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst... And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life... You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. But don't worry... you will someday.
It was one of those days when it's a minute away from snowing and there's this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it. And this bag was, like, dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes. And that's the day I knew there was this entire life behind things, and... this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video's a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember... and I need to remember... Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in.
I would have enjoyed more and worried less.
I would have talked less and listened more.
I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained or the sofa faded.
I would have eaten the popcorn in the living room and worried much less about my pissed off life.
I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.
I would have sat on the lawn with my parents and not worried about grass stains.
I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more while watching life.
I would have buck up rather concentrating upon million uncertainties in life.
I would have made my promises rather giving excuses.
I would have speaken truth rather shooting false bullshit.
There would have been more "I love you's." then More "I'm sorry's."
As predicted rule, life only gives you a single chance. so, make the best out of it.live every moment of life….look at it…really see it , feel it….live it and never give it back.
random thoughts in my mind
thinking about the person you love...
taking a long walk on a calm road with someone you love...
getting a hug from someone you love...
giggling naughtily with your best friend...
finding money in your old jeans just when you needed...
the moment your eyes are filled with tears after a big laugh...
