11/11/11

The 11th day of the 11th month of the year 2011… 11/11/11

So what’s so profound about that? Well nothing really except that this date will never come around again.

My wife, Mia-Cara pointed out just now that we have been privileged to experience so many things in this lifetime that we often take for granted and simply just miss it.

We have just been part of naming the new 7 wonders of the world. We voted for that.
The first soccer world cup to be hosted by South Africa in 2010. The 1994 elections. Nelson Mandela. Y2K. Steve Jobs. Mother Theresa. John Stott. Microsoft. Facebook. Twitter. Smart phones. The internet. And the list goes on.

Sure there are many things we should be concerned about too. Global warning. HIV/Aids. World violence. World recession. And this list goes on too.

What’s my point?

You only live once and before you wipe out your eyes, it has passed.

Live life today. Enjoy the beauty it brings with it. Appreciate the struggles that mould us.
Embrace life.
Breathe.
Smile.
Laugh.
Cry.
Talk.
Cry some more.
Laugh again.
Be inspired.
Forgive.
Love.
Live.
