“I can’t possibly die at 45!”

I watched a movie about a few weeks ago, Will Smith was the main character in the movie. He had already lost his daughter, he’s broken and locked out of the world, but that’s not where I’m going to. There was a conversation between a guy and a woman in this movie. The guy is in his mid-thirties and he’s already diagnosed with cancer; odds are he’s gonna die real soon.
“When I was a kid, I thought I’d live up to 120 years like Moses or more, but look at me now, I’m gonna die real soon and there’s no two way about it”, he told the woman.
We all look forward to living long and seeing our grand children and their children and on and on, but that can’t happen to everyone and it’s nobody’s fault.
Not everyone’s gonna live up to 120 years or 90 or 65, but it doesn’t matter. What matters is what happens between 0-90, 0-55, 0-70.

Life’s too short to keep procrastinating. You have a friend or cousin who lives two blocks away and you had a row and you’re not on good terms with him? Well go on and settle things today, ‘cos you seem him today doesn’t mean you’ll see him tomorrow… He could be miles away tomorrow, with no way to contact him.
Or you have that MAD idea the world’s yet to know? Well spill it out, the world’s hungry for new things. If you don’t do anything about it real soon, some where across continent you’ll your exact idea flourishing under someone else’s name.
We @Madthinkers are not here to spoil your day, we’re to help you get on with life. Madthinkers, Google, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, are all people’s idea. You can never hold or see a ‘Facebook’ you only get to use them, they’re finished products of people’s ideas. Until you process your idea, it remains raw like corn and cornflakes. Everyone can have a corn, but only one person can make cornflakes.
You’ve heard it before, when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. Thank you for your time, remain MAD.

  1. The older I get, the more I realize which priorities are truly worthwhile. Nature is a funny thing. It doesn’t let us fully realize the importance of time until we’re almost out of it. Nice post!
