Life is short, and having it is a privilege. That doesn’t mean live it quickly, it means appreciate whatever moments, friends or family you’re lucky enough to hold today. Sometimes that means being kinder to yourself than others have been. Sometimes it means being kinder to others than they have been to you. Being kind, or charitable literally makes you feel better. It’s an easy way to love life more. If you’ve put off reaching out to someone, lost touch, or don’t see eye to eye, and you think it’s too late to make amends, the good news is there’s only one single moment when that’s true, and that’s your last one. Love your life a bit more. Tomorrow it might be too late. Kia ora.
