While sitting with him I listened as he talked about this girl. I told him, “today you are going to call her, what are you waiting for?”
It took few minutes of motivation and finally he agreed to call her:
Ring, ring... ring, ring...
“hello” a man answered the phone. It sounded like her father
“May I speak with María?”
“María” the man on the other side replied
“Who is this? Is this a prank call” clearly annoyed...
“No, no” with a nervous tone “this is George a friend of hers...”
After a few seconds of silence, the father continued “María died two years ago...”
This young man felt the shock as if he had been hit with a bat; he was not prepared or ever imagined the death of his beloved. In his mind, he had created a life with Maria and today everything that he dreamed of just got demolished, it all came crashing down in pieces.
The sadness in his eyes and the pain was so profound... I could not hold myself and I brooke out in tears.
He had been carrying this phone number in his pocket for years waiting for the right moment.
__ I woke up with tears in my eyes, with a feeling of emptiness, sadness... what a powerful dream!
I thought to myself, "how many of us have been in a similar situation, in situations where we waited for too long, missed opportunities, never knowing what would of happened if we only called”
Keep in mind:
Life is what happens to us while working a plan to live
Life is not a matter of waiting for the right moment to act because it will never be the right time.
Life is about living, getting up and going for it!
It was not a happy dream but it was a good reminder. Thank you!
