Lesson From Japan: Seize Each Moment, There May Be No Tomorrow

Japan Earthquake followed by disastrous tsunami proved the old true – we have to live our lives fully at present, there may be no tomorrow.
We would never expect this to happen, even in our biggest nightmares. Japan is highly civilized country, with all the emergency plans, with all the sophisticated technical and electronics equipments in place. Still the Mother Nature shows us how vulnerable we – the human beings – are.
 It is not a punishment for some wrongdoing for Japanese people, but they have to take on their shoulders its burden now. Those who survived have to find the strength to cope with loosing family members and friends, their homes, jobs and places they felt connected to. They may be left out homeless, starving from lack of electricity and basic food supplies at present. Regardless how much fortune they have gathered in the past, regardless how much valuables they have collected. They are like “naked”, just with their memories from the past and the hope for better days to come.  
 It is never too late to say your family and friends how much you love and care about them. It is never too late to say thank you to those who deserve it. It is never too late to start to seize each moment of your life to find YOUR way to happiness.
You have to act now. Because nobody can be sure what the future brings.
