If you died today, would it have been an unforgettable last day on earth?
Think about how you spent today? Did you go to school? Maybe work? What did you do afterwards? What were your emotions of the day? Did you do anything memorable? Feel anything memorable? Was it a day wasted or a day well-spent?
You hear it all the time, “You have to live every day like it’s your last day on earth, because one day it will be.” but how do you do that? Do you do something crazy, like skydiving, every day? Do you take advantage of every second of every day and not let it go to waste? How the hell do you “live every day like it’s your last”?
It puts a lot of pressure on yourself if you really think about it.
There is so much going on in the world and in our lives, yet we’re supposed to keep “it may be my last day alive” in the back of our minds? That’s insane. I agree that we should be aware that our time on this world may expire at any given moment, but that doesn’t mean that you have to make every single day unforgettable. It’s the little things that matter. Like:
Doing what you love. I want to die knowing that I was doing what I love. That can range from relaxing on the couch to running 5 miles. Doing what you love is completely up to you.
Being with whom you love. There is nothing more comforting than being with the people you love. Any day can be made amazing just by surrounding yourself in loving arms. Period.
Saying what you mean. What is one thought that you are currently holding in? Say it. Say it right now to whomever it pertains to. Before it’s too late.
Living with no regrets. If there is anything, and I mean anything that you are longing to do, then do it. A life full of regrets isn’t a life worth living.
Just live. Plain and simple.
