We Only Got 86,400 Seconds In A Day
So what are you waiting for?
As Kris Allen say's in his song Live Like We're Dying,
"We gotta start looking at the hands of the time we've been given
If this is all we got and we gotta start thinking
If every second counts on a clock that's ticking
Gotta live like we're dying.
We only got 86,400 seconds in a day to
Turn it all around or to throw it all away
We gotta tell them that we love them
While we got the chance to say
Gotta live like we're dying"
So what are you waiting for? Make your "Bucket List". Get it out of your head and write it down on paper. Post it on your fridge and start living your life. Don't make excuses. Even if it's something simple like taking a walk at the end of your day - get off your a$$ and do it! If we start small we can accomplish big things. We don't know what today has in store for us. What if you had a stoke at the end of the day that left you paralyzed and unable to speak? Would you regret your life until that moment?
Why is it that if we are healthy, we all wait until a funeral to re-energize our view of life? We promise during the funeral to start living life but then revert back to not making time for fun and special moments in our lives. We get too caught up make a living and not a life. So why not make today be the day that you really start to live like you're dying? Honestly, we don't know how many more seconds we have left to hear the birds chirp, feel the sun on our cheeks, dance in the rain, blow bubbles, conquer our fear of roller coasters, tell someone how much we love them or have a beer in Mexico.
Start looking at the hands of the time you've been given, turn it all around... Live, live, live!!!!
