My family and I woke up in the middle of the night because of the strong earthquake we felt. It shook our bed very fast that we were so scared that it wont stopped anytime soon. Thankfully after a few seconds it did stop immediately leaving everything safely on its right place. We scrambled down the staircase of our home thinking an after shock will soon take effect. We don’t own a mansion but I can honestly say that we live in a comfortable place that we call home. We surely are a lot luckier compared to a great majority of people in the world especially the different groups of homeless people we see in different areas who do not even have a place with a roof to sleep in. Nevertheless, this simple yet frightening thing that has happened made me think about life. It shook me physically and emotionally that it somehow sent a clear message to me. First of all, I though that no matter how grand your home is, even if it was built with high end construction materials, interiorly designed by the most popular designer, no one will save it from any catastrophe like a powerful earthquake. Even if you are the riches man on the earth or the poorest person there is, if any calamity strikes, it doesn’t choose who it affects. It goes to the direction it wants not withstanding whatever and whoever is on its way. We will feel the same effects all at the same time. So even if you have billions of dollars, live in an upscale neighborhood in a mansion filled with all the most up to date appliances and gadgets, earthquakes, typhoons, tsunamis and other calamities won’t stop spare you. The material things we own, from our homes, expensive automobiles, business tools and equipment connected to the industry you are into like any top Paint Booths 2015, office tools, furniture and fixtures and every single thing we own is something that we will not bring when our time comes. You may be rich or poor but when your time comes, when you pass away there is nothing you can bring to the grave with you. You must always remember to spend time with your family, friends and other love ones, live your life to the fullest every single waking hour, treasure the individuals that make you happy because life is short.
We’ve all heard about people who are very health conscious from the food they eat, exercises daily to maintain a good physique because he or she is scared to acquire any grave illness but then met an accident or had a heart attack that ended his or her life. We can never really tell what will happen to our life that is why we should always cherish our time with our family and simply enjoy life. Everything we have today can be lost in just a blink of an eye.
