Have you ever seen the question that asks, “If you could do anything on the last day of your life, what would it be?”
When I was younger I used to think I’d want to be off in so distant country doing amazing, scary, brave things. Trying to soak up all of life in one day, but as I’ve gotten older my answer has changed to something quieter, less eventful.
If I answered this question today it would probably go something like, spend the day surrounded by family, enjoying good food, reminiscing and laughing until my sides hurt.
And the good thing about this answer is this can be had and enjoyed everyday. I don’t want to miss out on all of the good thing surrounding me now in anticipation of some perceived better ones later.
My good things include a hard working husband, tiny squeezable boys who laugh with their whole bodies and a house we’ve made a home. Someone said life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. I just don’t believe that.
Life is in the mundane, everyday, non-sharing moments. Life is beautiful we only have to open ourselves up to the goodness we’re surrounded by each new day.
If you could do anything on your last day of life, what would it be?
