I heard some news today from a couple of friends back in India. Apparently one of the guys we went to uni with back there died last night. From a cardiac arrest. At 31. He was also quite fit and as far as they are aware, healthy. He owned a gym and was in the sports management field.
We are shocked. I won’t lie and say I was close to him; we weren’t. He was an acquaintance and a Facebook friend. But it’s still shocking when you hear someone in their 30s dying of apparently natural causes. I feel for his wife and his family. It must be awful for them. So completely unexpected. So sudden.
It makes me realise though — life is short.
We put off so many things thinking we will have the time to do it someday — but maybe, maybe that some day will never come. We get caught up in the mundane and the monotonous and forget to really live. We just exist. And before you know it, it’s all gone in a flash. Sometimes we work in a dead end job hating every minute of it not realising that the day to take that dream vacation or to jump ship and try something new might never come.
Stop putting things off.
Move out of your comfort zone.
Because life is short.
Until next time,
