Each day should be full of wonderful opportunity and it should be presenting it’s self consistently.
We may not be able to control all the dynamics of any one single day; But we can control how we act, react, make a difference and encourage those around us.
The question I want to raise today is:
What if you have one month to live. How would you spend it?
As soon as we add in this restriction to life, our priorities, our ideas and our thinking changes.
It changes based on the fear of missing out, that we wont be or do so much.
Most people will spend their remaining time with loved ones, they would spend it through experiences, learning and creating.
Any of these choices, or all of them would be great way to spend your final month.
The real elephant in the room is…
Why must you have a restriction or deadline on life, to realize that life is limited and precious.
If you go through life expecting you can do or be something/someone ‘one day’ but you’re not willing to start working for it now – then you will probably never see it.
You need to make a choice to make time for your dreams and goals as your time won’t be increasing, but only depleting.
“Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” – Barack Obama
Below is a list comprised from Megan Auman’s manifesto.
Her manifesto is relevant on how we should embrace life in its fullness:
- Attitude is everything.
- Own the room.
- Don’t wait for permission.
- Worry less, do more.
- Don’t settle for boring.
- Follow your passion.
- Ask for what you want.
- Never let fear stop you.
- Try it and see.
- Believe in yourself.
- Be unapologetically you.
- Make a statement. Every day.
The above points are perfect ways to embrace life, but an additional point is to embrace your faith.
For me this is living and trusting in God.
Regardless – don’t wait around for a restriction to put on your life, before you can realize the importance of your time.
Start today and work towards your plan.
