The last moment you talk to someone might, in the moment, feel pretty ordinary, even meaningless, such as what you would like for dinner. But although we may not like to think about it, sometimes the world has a larger plan for us all, and we are just here to go along for the ride. For some, seemingly unexplained occurrences dealing with the worst tragedies of their life, stress how incredibly strange but ultimately magical life can sometimes be.
Did you know there are over eight trillion text messages sent each and every day? Yes, every minute more than 15 million texts are passed through the airwaves, as we try and connect with our loved ones around the world. That or our Amazon Prime order is finally waiting for us at home. As if that wasn’t scary enough, it is thought that we spend about 23 hours a week texting our friends and family. It might be hard to fit in any work at all at this rate, especially as it’s believed we check our phones at least 46 times a day. So how many texts do you send daily? Average millennials will type out 67 every day. How can there be so much to talk about? We may never know, but with texting overtaking emails thanks to their ease and speed, it looks as though this craze is only set to rise.
Texting can be great if you need a quick response from someone or just can’t face the idea of picking up the phone and being social. However, what if you knew it was going to be the last time you ever spoke to someone? Would you make more of an effort to send them good wishes, or would you even think about talking over the phone rather than typing your message? We never really know what the world has in store for us. That’s the issue; things can change at any time. Sometimes you know in advance, and sometimes it blindsides you. But even in times of the deepest shock and anguish, a shot of solace can come through, if not to make it all better, then to offer you moment of comfort.
