“If you admire somebody you should go ahead and tell them. People never get the flowers while they can smell them.” – Kanye West
It doesn’t take a genius to recognize the fact that in a whim life comes and goes. And during your lifetime you will encounter people – be it family members, eventual friends or acquaintance – that will leave an indelible mark on your existence. While it’s easy to go through life without a second thought that the great times you’re experiencing with someone will last forever, remember those times are limited. One day you will wake up to find that person you looked up to, or loved dearly, or assisted you when you had no one else is gone.
And on that day you’ll realize you never told that individual how much they meant to you and/or what they did shaped you into the person you are today. But that’s tomorrow. Today, take some time to let them know the truth. Let them know who they are to you. Let them know that through their actions they’ve helped make someone’s life better.
