One INSTANT LIFE, please!

This is the lifestyle of TODAY.

Instant noodles.
Instant coffee.
Instant TV dinners.
Instant cookies.
Instant blending.
Instant relationships.
Fast Food.
Fast lane. literally.
Fast to work.
Quick dinner.
Quick "Hello".
Quick "Bye".
Quick kiss.

Welcome to the Instant Life! With it, you also have the main course of Instant Pressure. Instant Datelines. Instant reports. Instant death. We thank you for your patronage.

Instant.. Fast.. Quick. Quite the life many lead. Being in the advanced Age of Industrialisation, we have grown to beat our bodies to create instant results. To work FAST, speedily. To be on the move, to be quick on our toes.

However, as we cherished the opportunities each challenges provides, we learnt to live on the INSTANT.

We have lost the value of living life. There's no such thing as "Smelling the roses". It's too slow. No time. So we have forgotten that love grows with time. You can't find done in an INSTANT.

We understand the need to love and be loved. Yet, with the need to get things done, to get ahead, to get moving, is taking that love away. Unfortunately, we have yet to realise there's a deep chasm of emptiness building up FAST!

Life is not about on the GO. Life is not about being INSTANT. Not about moving FAST nor being QUICK. It is about Irealising how FAST our lives can fade in an INSTANT with a QUICK blink of an eye.

The working environment today requires us to be SPEED workers. Always on the move. Always due yesterday. This is the environment of DEATH. More and more very YOUNG people, who have yet to taste the goodness of life, live out their very LAST DAYS with the QUICK attack of the heart - Alone!

It is good to have certain instant stuff. Good to have things done fast. Great to be quick with certain responses. However, it is never good to life live furiously on the INSTANT that it passes you by, only leaving you an empty shell that you can vividly remember as life!

So think about your life. Think about making your life count. Don't live life by the INSTANT. Live it to its FULLNESS!
You can make a change today.

Have a blast!
