Everyday is a Bonus

The Scene: Coffeeshop.

Two elderly men were sitting on the table next to mine this morning. They were talking about a lot of things and were basically very metaphoric. Then another man joined them.

"Hey! How are you?"

"Good, good", the 3rd man replied. "Well, everyday is a bonus"

That got me thinking. I thought that is one of the nicest statement I have heard for a very long time. We are so busy living that we forgot to appreciate our time on earth. We rushed from this to that, we gripe about the stupid traffic system in Melawati (that's another story) We yell and pick fights with people when we really should be spending quality time with them. We are busy chasing for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow that we forget to appreciate the beauty of the rainbow.

Yes, everyday IS a bonus. We'll never know when it's going to be our last, so live hard and play hard.
