Your Last Day

What would you do differently if this was your last day on earth?

This question forces each of us to pause and reflect . . .

What matters most in my life? What do I value? What do I love to do? Who matters most to me?

Would you choose to do your favourite activities? Would you read a favourite book? Would you go for a walk in a special place? Would you call up or visit your best friends? Would you spend the day with family?

Would you write a letter or make a call to tell someone what you’ve been meaning to say? Thank you. I’m sorry. I forgive you.

Would you use your last opportunity to tell the people that you love that you love them . . . again?

Since it’s most likely not your last day of life, reflect on how you will occupy your time today. What will consume the precious hours of this ordinary day? How will you spend your life today?

Most of us don’t know how much time we have left to do what we’ve meant to do, to say what we’ve meant to say, to do what we love to do, and to be with those we love.

You have this weekend, and now that you’ve reflected on what matters most to you, how will you spend your time?
