At the start of this blog, I want to write this differently. Rather than you reading it, I want to be involved and participate by reflecting. Allow me to ask you a simple question that needs a simple answer.
“If you have only 30 days to love, what would like to do differently?”
(I want you to take your time to think about this before we proceed.)
If your answer is very different from what you are doing now, it means to say that you are not living the life that you want to live. You may be force to do something today because you need to do it not because you want to do it. You may be earning a living but the question is do we really have a life? Are you progressing or are you regressing? Are you thriving or are you surviving? Are you growing or are you dying?
Just imagine, if you know today is your last day. What will you be really doing?
Will you visit your aging parents and tell them “I love you.”
Will you ask for forgiveness from your friends and sibling that you hurt in the past?
Will you visit the places you have in your bucket list and get to see the places you have never seen before?
Will you invest more time with your kids and your spouse rather than staying at the office and work longer hours?
Will you invest more of your time with the eternal things like having a personal relationship with your God rather than the spending your life with the temporal things that can only give you temporary happiness?
What would like to do? How would live your life differently?
Why wait for that day to come? Why don’t we wake up everyday and give our very best and think this will be our last day.
We need to live our life everyday as if today is our last day.
Never live a life of regret but let us live a life of contentedness!
Just like Steve Job’s philosophy founder of Apple
When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, some day you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “no” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. ~Stanford University, 2005
