This is the moment

There will never be any other moment such as this. This reality finally hit me hard. I should’ve realized this long before, and now that I know it, I should never ever forget it. Like the same river that flows will never be exactly as it was before, each and every moment in our life is just one moment in itself, and will probably never ever happen again. That’s why we should always enjoy and appreciate every moment that we’ve got.

Here’s a 3-br flat in the tallest residential building in Gold Coast. It’s a wonderful flat, in a wonderful place, and I am having a wonderful time on holiday with my family. I’ve been in Australia for a week now, and I’ve seen so many new places and a lot of new things. But something really is so wonderful about this place, Gold Coast.

I might not have a chance to go back here. If I do, I may not be with the same people. I will most probably not be able to stay in this flat again next time. I will never be able to recreate this moment, so I’m trying to take in and absorb everything right now – the sights, the environment, and the experiences. I will stop thinking that I’ll be able to do something another time, but I’ll just enjoy what I’m able to do. I’ll live in the moment.

I’m so drawn and enamored by this place though, and a certain part of me wants to live here. I don’t really know, maybe there’s a chance later on, anything is possible. But I’ll put that off for another day. I’ll just enjoy my vacation for now.

Each and every other moment may not be as special as this, but nonetheless they are uniquely their own moment. We should learn to appreciate the good and the bad in each moment – enjoy the good to the fullest, and learn and be humbled from the bad. Beyond this, it would ever be just a memory and nothing else, and whatever has happened, there is no way to go back and change things.

Be in the moment. It’s the only chance you’ve got.
