Life is too short and sometimes we are so busy in life chasing big things that we don't take care of small things.
As they have said it, "Take care of small things and big things will fall into their places."
Recently, Vikas khanna, an indian chef shared a post on facebook, which can be a lesson for everyone out there.
On Jan 31, 2015, as a morning ritual I called home and to speak to my Mom and Dad. Dad was super excited for 2 reasons, Serena Williams was playing Finals for Australian Open and Mercedes had signed me up for their association. He told me that it was his dream to drive his son’s Merc. I laughingly said that why didn’t you tell me before, he joked and said “you had never asked.” We laughed as usual and disconnected.
At noon on the same day, he passed away. No child can ever be ready for this loss; it leaves a hole in your heart. Makes you feel empty, betrayed by Gods and unprotected to the World.
I still wonder about the line he said “you had never asked.”
So many times since that unfortunate day, I wish I could have done more for him, made him proud, and fulfill all his wishes.
Life lesson - Don’t wait for a single more moment. Our parents might never ask for anything and just give all their lives for us.
Surprise them, spoil them, hug them, ask them about their dreams, and loveeee them. Because one day you might be able to buy a fleet of cars, but you cant buy time.
Love them, while they are still here, because you never know, what tomorrow may bring.
