My Last Day Alive

My Last Day Alive

What if it’s today?

How am I going to handle it?

OK, so first what I’m not going to do.

I’m not going to just sit on the couch.

No TV.

No Netflix.

No movies.

No partying by eating lots and lots of Twix and Kit Kats.

I want to see my wife.

My friends.

My children.

Last time I’ll be with them.

What do I say?

Maybe nothing.

Maybe I’ll just listen.

I’ll pay full attention.

Hear them like never before.

Last chance to hear their hearts.

I’d really like to laugh with them.

Not cry, but laugh.

Laugh so hard we’d forget what it was about.

Laugh like it’s my last.

Microstep: Fully experience the urgency of now. Of being present. Fully present to all the love in your life. Like it’s your last day here.
