So I was sitting down at mass today and after the ceremony they made an obituary announcement. The last name struck me so I turned to my mother to confirm.
And it was true, one of my friends from primaryand secondary school had lost his mother.
This was so sad to me because he had lost his younger brother a while ago. And then I realised why my dad who is usually very serious at church went to hug that friend’s dad.
Death is an integral part of life… In fact one could say it gives life meaning. I am over 30 years old so i have lost friends, aunties, uncles, grandparents etc.
And most of the time we process it an move on. Because we have to work, have to take care of other people, have hobbies or dreams or causes responsibilities.
But today I felt this announcement as a reminder. My time here on earth is fixed… Our time here on earth is fixed… Won’t it be such a was if we didn’t get in that extra laugh, that extra smile, that extra hug, that extra kiss, that extra orgasm, that extra cry, that extra moment of happiness, joy, peace, curiousity, fulfillment, satisfaction, content, accomplishment, thrill.
It hit me that as someone who has been unlucky in love, I had stop putting myself out there. But I have never been a relationship that didn’t have good times… so why hide my heart. Why avoid the chance to fall on love, get hurt, hurt someone (getting hurt or hurting someone just showed you or they cared)… afterall we all are unlucky in love until we aren’t.
So Dr. Ezy is back on the market ladies abd actively search for the one who will walk this journey with me… And won’t mind adding to the friends list if it was not meant to be.
