A Long Goodbye.

Ronan Keating sang this song titled, A Long Goodbye. It struck me that our entire life is one long goodbye. We began our goodbyes, the very moment we are conceived in our mother’s womb, and will end when we die, which is the most uncertain certainty.

Some of us, makes a fool of ourselves, by denying ourselves a decent long goodbye, and hoping that the eventual goodbye never comes. Some accepted it all to ready, and all a little to soon. both spectrum of perspectives, we miss the beauty of life far and wide.

So we need to understand that a ‘goodbye’ is not a simple event. Not a single event. Understanding life as a long goodbye, we need to make sure we look at each person, every moment as carefully as we can, as every moment contribute to our long goodbye.

Miss a moment, and it seems like our goodbye ain’t that long, and somehow, the goodbye has sneakily snuck up on us, without our awareness. Keep your sense and conscious on the moments that came, went and coming, keeps a long goodbye, long. Not for any reason that we want to lengthen the length of our long goodbyes, it is that when we put our minds on the things that mattered, all goodbyes will be appropriately long.

Long not in the sense of a long winded goodbye, a long winded goodbye, is a goodbye necessarily drawn.

Understanding life as a long goodbye, give us courage to make and take choices. Since every moment of a meet, is a moment of goodbye, we gotta make every good bye meaningful, knowing that a goodbye is a chance of a meeting, we have to make the moment, a moment, not a moment more, not a moment less.
