The last month has opened my eyes to how important family and friends are. Not that there’s anything in particular, but I realized that there is no better day than today and no better time than right now to tell the people we care about that we love them, or show them our love by doing little things they like or taking every chance we get to give them a tight hug.
Life is so unpredictable. And while under the normal circumstances, I would get high off of this kind of unpredictability and spontaneity, I have come to realize that we may or may not have a tomorrow. We only get a fistful of sand and even that eventually flows out.
As much as I would like to tell you that we’ve always got tomorrow to tell people how much they mean to us, I’m afraid that this is the kind of thing that needs to be told immediately. And why not? Everybody could use some happiness in their lives.
And when I say ‘people’, I include telling yourself that you’re doing great, too. You could have all the money and all the boujee wardrobe swagger in the world. You could be drinking out of a Starbucks cup every single day and go on the most extravagant vacations. But all that won’t mean much if you cannot love yourself.
If you like somebody, tell them right away. If you want to be friends with somebody, get to know them. Ask them out on a date. Tell people you love them. Tell them how important they are to you. It never hurts to put more love out in this world full of hate.
So, do me a favour, in fact, do everybody a favour and let them know that you care. Even if you have to do it every single day, do it. There is no point in regretting not having said anything sooner. And for that reason alone, I ask all of you to let your loved ones know what place they hold in your life.
Spread the love. Always and forever.
