It’s around 3:00AM in the morning, I don’t have too much tasks on my shift and so I’m trying to think what I should write for today’s post. While thinking of another personal finance related topic, I was shocked with a text message I got from my mother. One of our beloved grandmother died. :/
After battling with couple of mild heart attacks previously, she was not able to make up this time. God bless her.
I suddenly realized I was not moving for several minutes. I was stucked. I cried. My mind flew and traveled back to my childhood with the memories of our beloved “Nanay Soling“. I can clearly recall how hardworking she was. How religous, how kind and how humble person. I admired her. Sad to say, it’s time for her to go.
It is true that people will only remember the good things you’ve done on earth when you die- not your failures or not the money you make. The people will remember your contributions in terms of “value” and not in terms of numbers. The impact. And the results in other people’s life and your love ones.
Life is really short. No matter how hard you try to stay on this earth, time will come that you’re going to say goodbye – forever. It ‘s only a matter of time.
Time is limited. Every moment came by will never go back.
Death is true. And that’s for everyone. Life has to end in someway or another. It’s only a matter of time.
Again, this strengthen my belief that I have to live a quality life while I’m here. While we’re here. I realized(again) that I have to work on what’s really matters. On what counts the most. On what what really provides value to life and the people around me – especially my family. Time will come, I will get there. You will get there. It’s only a matter of time.
No personal finance tips for this day. I feel that I have to share this. I need to get this out my chest. I need to clear my mind.
Everything will be ok. It’s only a matter of time.
