‘I fear waking up one morning and finding out my life was all for nothing. We’re here for a reason. I believe a bit of the reason is to throw little torches out to lead people through the dark. When you are kind to someone in trouble, you hope they remember and are kind to someone else and so on. Soon it’ll be like a wildfire.’ ~Whoopie Goldberg
What a pity if it dawned on us, that our life was all for nothing and a waste of time. That must surely be the one of the saddest moments in life that we could face. But life can slip us by so quickly. The pace of life is hectic, full and competitive. We are at times almost forced to keep up with it. Then one day we look in the mirror so to speak, we see uncertainty in our lives, we begin to question what we have achieved and we feel that everything has slipped us by. But that day can be firmly kept at a distance if we treasure each day as a gift from God to us. It can be kept at a distance if we treasure the small moments that always add up to something significant. It can be kept at a distance if we share some of our light with others whose light is dim or struggling. Our day will come too when we will need someone else to help ours. What can I do today that will add to my sense of purpose in life? Whatever small good I may do today will have an impact way beyond my limited horizons.
