Lucky you


I recall a quote from the movie Heat
Life is short, and whatever time you get is luck
I remember that moment echoing in my mind for weeks
I mean, it’s a simple truth, but something about the stakes made sure it stuck

Life is short, and whatever time you get is luck
Regulars in your life could be thrust to the other side of the world
In a matter of weeks, cornerstones become fond memories
One diagnosis could turn your favourite chocolate to an enemy of your anatomy
And let’s not even get started on situations of finality
But is treating every moment with gratitude even remotely realistic?

Life is short, and whatever time you get is luck

Sam Harris once said, we will all inevitably come to the realisation
That we’ve spent so much time worrying about the wrong things
And that epiphany is coming to us all
Maybe even multiple times in different cycles
Maybe it’s in our nature to take things for granted
After all, our focus is undoubtedly limited
I think we get a lot of days in life, but never enough hours
There’s a lot to grasp for in life, but never enough that’s ours
But…
All I know is…
Life is luck and whatever time you get is short
