Watched Oprah for a few minutes today. Some hot guy was in a near fatal car accident and they were talking about how that experience has changed his life, blah blah blah.... One thing he said got me thinking. Said he lives each day as if it were his last. Not a new statement by any means but made me think "how does one really do that".
I know if I actually tried to live that way I wouldn't have wasted time cleaning my kitchen or vacuuming today. My children certainly wouldn't have gone to school and my husband wouldn't have gone to work. So how exactly does one live life like that?? Hmmmmmm......
It's kinda funny, I've been thinking about this all day. I certainly want my life to have meaning (granted I've birthed 4 children so that's a good one right there, right). I want to live as honestly as possible, I want the people I love to know that. So the only way I can think of living that way is to do my best each day to love my family and friends, to serve others, to continue improving myself, to have fun, and stay close to my HF. I mean, I can't just have fun all the time, chores need to get done, kids need to get beat (JK!), bills need to be paid, post need to be blogged!!! And quite frankly sometimes I'm just grumpy.
So what are your thoughts on living like it's your last day, how do we make that more than just a nice statement??
