Tell Someone They Matter
Do you believe that life is short and that every day matters?
I do believe this and yesterday I got another reminder why I believe this to be true.
Yesterday I was working together with some friends of mine, when one of them told me that another friend of ours husband had passed away. He was only 63 years old.
I know this person and I have worked with her, and I had also met her husband several times.
Last time I spoke with her was in the end of September. She told me that her husband was having back pain and was recuperating in bed.
Two months later I find out that this man passed away a few weeks ago.
All of this happened in less than two months.
I was chocked yesterday when I got the news, and today I'm still trying to wrap my brain around what has happened and in such short period of time.
Now......Do you believe that life is short and every day matters?
I have felt for a long time that I should stop wasting time and energy on things that don't really matter.
I believe that every day matters.... because I have lost a lot of days.
I also believe that every day matters because I have lost a lot of people that I care about.
I also believe that every day matters because I have lost opportunities and I have wasted a lot of valuable time.
A believe that a lot of you might feel the same way?
If you believe this I hope that it will give you some inspiration, motivation and hopefully it will give you some discipline to not waste time and to really believe that EVERY DAY MATTERS.
I am sure you heard a lot of people say...."Live today like it was your last day here on earth."
Think like a painter.....make each day that you are here on earth your masterpiece because you might not be at the canvas tomorrow.
You might not be alive to create more of what we call life.
Today is a special day.
If you believe that every day matters..... how can you be more mindful of the day that you have been blessed with?
Maybe you would get off social media and your phone and have dinner together with you family members.
Instead of watching TV.....maybe you would call a friend on the phone or even better meet for coffee.
Don't take on that extra project that might give you some extra cash but it will take away time from your children and your family.
Never leave on bad notes.
Don't go to bed angry at each other.
Don't leave for work without a smile, kiss or goodbye.
Since I am such an animal lover.....make sure you take time with your pets. They are precious.
Take your dogs for walks outside your own yard. It's good for them and it's also good for you.
Make sure that you always leave the last interaction positive with someone..... because you might never actually see that person again.
I know that some of you have lost someone recently.
Somebody that you knew that is no longer here.
If we remember how important people are, maybe we can remember how important a day is.
If we can remember how important a day is, maybe we can remember to stop wasting time.
It's easy to waste a day.
But always remember that life is precious.....but it's also fragile.
