Sunday Ponderings: Why Stop Yourself?

Hello everyone.....doin alright, I believe. The same here...except for a very irritating cold n headache which I pray I can get rid of somehow.

Last week, I asked you what you'd do if you knew that the world would end in 24 hours. There was a common thread in most of your answers, which was that you would tell your loved ones how much you loved them. Also, a few of you said that you'd have fun and have a glass of wine to celebrate the last day. 

Now, the question here is, why do we have to wait for the last day to tell our loved ones how much we love them, to have that glass of wine and enjoy ourselves and live rather than survive?

The question today is more of a rhetorical one, I guess...so I sign off with this: Cease to survive and start living. Live, love and laugh.

  1. I learned as a teenager to never wait to say "I love you" to those I truly love because it may be too late - and I taught my family the power of that over time. [Parents & sibs] With my family now [hubs & kids] it has been a matter of course. No one ever goes without knowing they are loved.

    Hugs to you cat! Have a great one living! loving! and laughing!

  2. I tell people every day that I love them. I always end conversations with family and friends telling them how much I love them. That's also one of the reasons I don't care much about anniversaries and such stuff. I don't need a special day to tell someone how much he/she means to me.

  3. You are soooooo right!

    Whenever I say good bye to a loved one, even if it is someone I see or talk to on a daily basis, I always tell them I love them. I taught my children to do the same and they have also passed this tradition on to their kids. And I just don't say the words, I say them with meaning and I usually add a personal note.

    I also hug and touch a lot. That kind of connection with a human being is so very nourishing to the soul. In church each Sunday I probably hug at least 15 people and I have taught my children and grandchildren to accept and give hugs. kt

  5. I think we should live every day as if it could be our last. Because it could be. Time and unforeseen occurrence befall us all. Who knows what the right or left turn will bring each day.

  7. Very wise post today! and so very important - I always tell my loved ones how much I love them. None of us are sure when we might never see them again. Live, laugh, love indeed!

  9. Thought provoking post.. Human beings are so afraid of rejection, we never want to admit to anything emotional just in case it is a sign of weakness. We think before signing off 'with love'. I have a similar post http://suchismita-onthebrink.blogspot.com/2012/12/happiness-on-hold.html which also talks about how we push all good things to a later , better time.

  10. Your post reminded me of something else I read a long time ago. It was something like, "Why wait for a special occasion to use the good china and crystal?" In other words, every day is special! :-)
