Some of the most important lessons we learn in life are from the wisdom imparted to us from our parents. There also comes a time when our parents are no longer with us and that’s when we truly realise the importance of the lessons they taught us. Actor Dia Mirza too has been feeling the same as of late and has shared her perspective on the matter and how she gained from an important lesson. Dia Mirza took to social media to share an account of what her father had taught her. She spoke about her father's lesson of living each day as if it was your last.
While living each day as if it were your last was an important lesson she learned, she also added that we should be patient towards others irrespective of their misbehaviour as it could be their last day as well. How profound!
“My father would often tell me the only way to live life fully is to treat each day as it were my last... when I lost my father, I discovered the meaning of what he said. Our time is finite and that’s all we really have - Time,” she penned in her note. She went on to add, “Everyday I remind myself that not only could this be the last day of my life, it could be the last day of the person who is being unkind, rude, impatient or unthinking towards me.... This has made me more patient and kind towards myself and others.”
Dia’s parents were divorced when she was only aged four and her mother later remarried a Hyderabadi man named Ahmed Mirza, whose surname Dia took up as well. It appears Dia learned a lot of important lessons from him as well.
Dia was last seen essaying the role of Sanjay Dutt's wife Manyata Dutt in Sanju alongside Ranbir Kapoor. Although she has not been seen on the big screen in 2019, she has been working on and has appeared in a web series. She played the role of a Pakistani refugee mother in Kaafir and is also set to play the role of Mughal Emperor Babur's sister Khanzada in a web series titled Moghuls.
