Even Firsts Have An End


That's how it all began.
The day you were born.
Not before…not after…on that precise day…it all began…
Your life…your memories…your dreams and accomplishments…your firsts…
That first wail…that first flailing of the arms…that first tender kiss on your cheek…
Yes, that was the starting point of the good and the bad…of the happy and the sad…
Then came the first crawl…the first walk…the first word…the first time on a bicycle…the first day of preschool
Your parents waving to you as you walked into the building carrying your back pack and holding your lunch…them waiting when the first day finished…and you running  with open arms and so much to tell...
Then the first friend you had…the first sleepover…the first secret…the first feeling of friendship…
Growing up with your parents to guide you through the way…
After that, your first graduation…with your parents watching proudly and mom crying about "her little child growing up"
Then came your first step into high school…your first true feeling of independence…
The years rolling by…and it's your first day of university…first day of what you will become in life…what you will work for…
Then you grow up…the years are spinning by so fast…and it's all you can do to slow them…and then you…daddy's and mommy's little child…getting engaged…getting married…moving out…and your parents seeing their kid going…the kid they brought up and cared for and raised…going…going…to spend his/her life with someone else…the feeling of adventure…filling you as you move on to experience another part of life…
And after, your first job…your first salary…the feeling of happiness…unimaginable…
Then comes the first child…and the life cycle starts again for your baby…

That's how it is…Life…

A simple four letter word…with a meaning so enormous…so important…so priceless

And when it's about to end…you stand aside for a bit and look back on everything that you had done in your life…for you…for others…and it's here…at this spot that you will know...how well you lived your life...how well you used your time...how well you treated others...how well you prioritized everything...at that point you will discover if you have truly lived a good life or an illusion of one…

Now I ask you…dearest reader…when you stand at this spot…what will you see??
What do you think you'll see? This is a priceless question…that has only one good answer…a good answer that's for your own good…think…think…and may God be with you and guide you to the right way and help you stay on it…I have faith in you reader…

Everyone has something good in them…find that good in you…use it to help yourself and others…use it to make good of your life...before it's too late...and always keep in mind that we will be accounted for everything we do in this life...so choose well :)

May god be with you… 

Take care :)
