What If I Die Today
Raine Lariza

Have you ever asked yourself about it?

People these days are much busier with their own lives, thinking and doing everything they want in life. For others, it’s what that makes them happy. But what happiness really means to you?

Is it from the extravagant gifts you receive? Is it the luxury cars and houses you own? It is the non-stop leisure and caprices that always takes most of your time? Does money means your life?

Money. Well, the world cannot go round without money, right?
Everyone needs money. Most of the material things cost money. You can eat because you can buy from the money you have. You worked hard, even risked your life – may it be good or bad – just to give your loved ones a better life. Well, good for you. Maybe. But on the other hand, have you ever asked yourself what they really need from you? Have you? Do you take time with them, walk with them to a park or pay a visit to the church together? Have you ever give them simple gifts such as picked flowers, greeting cards or just a simple note saying how much they’re important to you? Do you take time to talk with them?

These things just need a little effort, isn’t it? What really matters most is, how much busier your days or weeks are, you still remember them. By just telling and showing how much you love them won’t take or cost you neither a lot nor material things. It is the real meaning of happiness. Making others happy.

Come to think of it, if you always got the habit of making others happy, by seeing them being glad, you –yourself would already feel happy. Vice versa, other people would also give back the happiness to you and they’re also became happy. It’s just a give-and-take situation.

Living your life to the fullest doesn’t always mean material things. You can always find happiness in the simplest things that’s just always around you that you sometimes tend to ignore or overlook.

Most important thing is pray, it can serve as our shield from harms. By means of praying, you can also thank God for everything you have – and never forget to thank Him for it. Yes, we always try to get things we want, but did we really thank God for everything He has given us? Did we ever thank Him for the life He has given us?

Life is short but life is beautiful. No matter how many trials that come into your life, always takes on the brighter side. Never let these problems turn you down. Always look forward, let others into your life. Happiness comes from the good heart and we earned it since our childhood. We sometimes just don’t know how to show it. Ask God for help.
Time may past. You can never be sure how long you will be in this world. What’s the most important is, you made your life sensible by sharing warm smiles, thoughts and ideas that makes life really worth living.
