IF TODAY WAS YOUR LAST DAY?

I am sure many of you have heard this song before. Well, I heard this song for the first time in March 2014 and loved it so much because the lyrics reminded me of the fears and thoughts I usually have.

The thing about music is that it connects to your life and the song, which connects to your soul, tops your playlist. We all have songs which we will hear during sad days and some songs during happy days.

This song lyric inspired me in various ways. It taught me to LIVE EACH DAY AS IF IT IS YOUR LAST DAY!(well at least for few days until the effect wears off )

We live each day thinking there is always a TOMORROW for us.
But, what if we get an incurable disease? what if a disaster happens? Like tsunami or earthquake? what if an accident happened? what if you loose your memory? what if the world ends? The infinite ‘what-ifs’ of tomorrow are scary.

This song lyrics in particular reminded me of so many ‘what-ifs’ both good and bad and this particular question lingers in my depth of  my being.

What if today is my last day?!

So let me post TODAY! I can’t wait for tomorrow when I have today. The first step is always the longest stride and every post is a first step.

“My best friend gave me the best advice
He said each day’s a gift and not a given right
Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind
And try to take the path less travelled by
That first step you take is the longest stride
If today was your last day and tomorrow was too late
could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last
Leave old pictures in the past?
Donate every dime you had, if today was your last day?
What if, what if, if today was your last day?
Against the grain should be a way of life
What’s worth the price is always worth the fight
Every second counts ’cause there’s no second try
So live like you’re never living twice
Don’t take the free ride in your own life
What if, what if, if today was your last day and tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past?
Donate every dime you had?
And would you call those friends you never see?
Reminisce old memories?
Would you forgive your enemies?
And would you find that one you’re dreaming of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you’d finally fall in love if today was your last day?
If today was your last day
Would you make your mark by mending a broken heart?
You know it’s never too late to shoot for the stars
Regardless of who you are
So do whatever it takes
‘Cause you can’t rewind a moment in this life
Let nothing stand in your way
‘Cause the hands of time are never on your side
If today was your last day and tomorrow was too late
could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past?
Donate every dime you had?
And would you call those friends you never see?
reminisce old memories?
Would you forgive your enemies?
And would you find that one you’re dreaming of
Swear up and down to God above
That you’d finally fall in love
if today was your last day?”
