In The Blink Of An Eye
A quick action, an instant, a heartbeat — and things change!
The unexpected action of ours or others changes life and leaves an imprint, and possibly a scar, on us and others.
Jim Denison today wrote in on his website Denisonforum.org the following:
“Three months after 9/11, Kobe Bryant wrote a column for Newsweek reflecting on what he had learned from the tragedy.
He stated: ‘I’ve learned also that you can’t take things for granted. You know how we always say ‘See you later’? One thing I’ve realized from September 11 is that you can’t ever say that for sure. Things change in the blink of an eye. People go to work and don’t come back. One minute they’re living and the next minute they’re not. And, it doesn’t matter who you are, there is nothing you can do about it.’
He concluded: ‘We never know when our time here will be over, so we all need to make the most of every minute we have.’ “
Let’s make the most of every moment with every person we meet, especially those closest to us!
I myself have experienced this so very often in my personal and professional life.
