Life is important. We will all live a very different life which varies in length, quality and excitement. We have no idea how long we will live for. This is a factor that I believe we cannot control indefinitely. However, we can ensure our quality of life. We can do small things like smiling on and keeping positive when times aren’t great.
Anyway, this got me thinking. How would we treat life if we were given a timer at birth? How differently would we act if we were told our death date to begin with? Would you live everyday to the fullest or would you remain in the lifestyle you’re in? I like to think that I live 90% of my days to the fullest. I mean, most of them I spend at school or work but around them, I am able to embrace life and do things that make me happy and improve my quality of life.
I want to know how you treat life? Do you think that if you were told your death date you would live any differently? do you think that you have the best quality of life that you can make? I wonder. I view life as very important and fun and I try to make as much fun out of it as I possibly can. Sometimes I have those dark days (which are okay) and other days I feel like relaxing (again, okay) but outside of those days, I live life to the fullest. I am healthy, I enjoy it and most importantly, I have fun.
Put it this way: if you had 60 seconds to live? what memories would pass you by? Could you fill those 60 seconds? Would you have to pick the most special ones? Or, do you not have enough to fill that time? No matter what your answer is, would you be proud to see what passes by? If your answer is no, how can you improve and change that? I believe that I have enough memories to fill that space. At the end of every year, I will review my highlights. Everything that I posted on social media in the last year or every memory that I have a photo of or can remember, I repost to show myself that I am proud of what I have achieved.
I guess that what I’m trying to say is that life is important and short. Thousands of people have said it before and I want to reinforce their message. Make the most of life and when those 60 seconds come along, make sure that there is plenty for you to watch, you’d rather not have enough time to think than be staring at a blank screen for a while.
