If Today is the Last Day of my Life

March 15, 2017

Well death is inevitable, we all die someday. 1000s of people are dying everyday and we can be one of them, Who Knows? 1000s of disease carrying bacterias and viruses are freely flying in the air we breathe, what if our immune system suddenly fail? What if the heart and lungs that have been working since our birth might finally get tired and stop working. What if, while going home you get hit by car or while sleeping you fell from your bed and die. What if the food you eat get stuck in your windpipe and suffocate you to death………….Well there are 1000s of things that can kill you and there are 1000s & 1000s ways you can die.

Well, life is full of risk. No one knows what will happen next; today can be the last day of your life.

About 4-5 days ago I was just wandering over a book “100 Ways to Motivate Yourself” by Steve Chandler. #1 was “Get on your Death Bed”, I also remembered the technique by Steve Jobs to distinguish important things in life: “What should I do, if today is the last day of my life?” One of my teachers Dr. Wayne Dyer used to say, “Teachers will appear when you are ready.” I guess I am ready to learn because this isn’t the first time I have heard this thing. And I don’t think this is your first time too.

So from that day (since 4-5 days ago) I started writing this everyday:

If today is the last day of my life, what should I do?

  1. Enjoy your breathing, enjoy your water, food and enjoy this moment.
  2. Reach out to everyone you love and adore.
  3. Try to help and lift more people. Personally I wish I could write +2000-3000 words a day, perhaps +40,000 words a day if it is even possible. So that I could help more people, so that 100 or 1000s years from now, Homo Sapiens Sapiens Sapiens (nerd stuff), the future generations of that time will read it and change their life.

Well, currently I may not be able to apply all those things, not today but it will certainly act as remainder about what is important and what’s not. This is just the Version 1.0, so there are lots of things to be improved in future.

So, here’s the question:

How would you live, if this is your last breathe, if today was the last day of your life?

How would you eat, if this is your last meal?

How would you drink, if this is the last bottle of water?

How would you talk or interact to your loved ones, if this is your last interaction?

Everyday we worry and think about things that aren’t going to matter in next years or in couple of days, we worry about what other will think about us, how should be act, how should we react, what should we wear, how should we show off. And we ignore the important things, we take them as granted, we waste our time and resources without thinking that this could be our last one. Without thinking today can be the last day of our life, without thinking this could be the day we have to leave all our belongings, all our status and riches and all the people we loved and who loved us. Without thinking this could be the end of all the words and dreams that were inside our head and heart but were never spoken or realized.

Well, this can be my Last Post, So I hope I made best use of it.
