This is a picture of a bridge that is said to be in Paris.
You hang locks on it with the name of you & your significant other-girlfriend-best-friend then throw the key into the river. So even though the friend/relationship may end, you can’t remove the lock. It stays there forever, as relevance to someone once a part of your life. Some have said that one day they want to go to this bridge and put a lock on it. I suppose all lovers wish at one time to be in Paris.
You have heard it all before, so for the record, here it is again … Life is just too short.
We go about trying to please everyone, do the right thing, make the good decisions, we are all caught up in the external things of life, and not the important issues. Time marches on by in its daily round the clock ritual and somehow we seem to not notice, and the the first thing you know, the good ole days are a long way down the pike and the future just doesn’t look all that bright, out of time.
I sincerely hope that in the time remaining for me, I have at least a second or two, a minute out of my busy life to celebrate something good with someone else. To effect or influence one person, thing, or action, to bring my perspective on another, however small it might be.
To brighten the life of another persons life or day, for just a short moment or two.
Having someone tell you that you have made an impact on their life. That feeling makes me circumspect. That feeling where you influenced someones thoughts or personal beliefs, and have pointed them towards a rightful path. Just a kind thought or a gesture is all it takes. Here is another take on it: No Matter What Anybody Says … A good read.
Today make a difference in someone’s life … Do it now, before you run out of time.
