She wrote down a beautiful message for us – the people buried under screens!

Holly Butcher, an Australian woman, left us on the morning of 4th of this month. At mere age of 27, she has found something important which we just aspire to search for. She had a rare form of cancer, and just a day before leaving the earth she penned down a powerful letter for all of us. I just happened to come across that post. It touched me somewhere and left me humble and teary for a while. Re-posting it for you guys.


By no means, I own the rights or wanna take credit for this post. Just felt like sharing it 🙂


 

A bit of life advice from Hol:

It’s a strange thing to realise and accept your mortality at 26 years young. It’s just one of those things you ignore. The days tick by and you just expect they will keep on coming; Until the unexpected happens. I always imagined myself growing old, wrinkled and grey- most likely caused by the beautiful family (lots of kiddies) I planned on building with the love of my life. I want that so bad it hurts.

That’s the thing about life; It is fragile, precious and unpredictable and each day is a gift, not a given right.

I’m 27 now. I don’t want to go. I love my life. I am happy.. I owe that to my loved ones. But the control is out of my hands.

Golu #Episode 3 : Who is Zafar?

Don’t forget to read first two episodes to get what’s going on:

Episode 1: Golu and First Day at IISc

Episode 2: Golu and his heroic love!

~~~

“You know guys, we are born in a very special time in human history. We have everything. Literally everything. We have a song for every possible mood like a speaking shadow of our soul. We have every damn vehicle to get anywhere we want in a matter of few hours. We have each and every kind of food to satisfy our taste buds. We have N sources for entertainment for our lazy cortex. Damn, we have 32 dating apps on play store even to meet the opposite sex. I think we are blessed. All this wasn’t there just few decades back. What if we had born few years before. We should thank Almighty because he showered his boons on….”

“Sutta bacha hai kya?”, Einstein interrupted Golu.

Einstein heard no response from other two. So he asked again about the availability of cigarettes.

There was still no response. He looked at them. They were staring at Golu.

“Either he is too smart or I am too high”, said Chinna. It was for Golu.

Dreams – One way or the other

What passes on is time, and what get spent is us. So before you get totally spent, live that dream you are counting on all your life.

This doesn’t make any sense

But well not everything does, not everything has to.

now I am gonna touch the age old ghisa-pita discussion of what race are you racing in! You don’t have control over your birth, your religion, your caste, the economical situation you get born into and the kind of schooling you get.. nothing. You grow up, see other kids passing their board exams, getting into the college and then graduate, so do you! You are lucky if you get a job among thousand candidates for a single vacancy otherwise you go for something which can at least earn you daily bread and butter, you get a girl according to your stability and financial conditions, you marry, manufacture children, apply same cycle to them and then on one fine day your heartbeat stops.

Well, that’s it. Everyone among us is doing it with or without realizing it. Nothing new and nobody is special.

Oh, but wait there is always a thing that makes you special. The thing you buried down years ago. Your dream. yes!! That poor little thing which you never nurtured. Ohh boy..

You are on time

Time is but the stream I go a-fishin in.

    – Henry David Thoreau

Sydney is two hours ahead of Manila, but it does not mean that Manila is slow and Sydney is faster than it. Its just both countries are working based on their own ‘Time Zone’.

Someone is still single, someone got married and ‘waited’ ten years before having a child, there is another someone who had a baby within a year after marriage and the ones without marriage :p

Someone graduated at the age of 22 and yet waited 5 years before securing a job, and there is another who graduated at the age of 27 and secured employment just after national service.

Someone became CEO at the age of 25 and died at the age of 50 while another became CEO at the age of 50 and lived for 90 years.
