Living everyday like it is your last! what does it REALLY mean?

June 2, 2012 § Leave a comment

“Living everyday like it is your last” is a saying that is sometimes overly used and seen as an excuse to live life for the moment irresponsibly (at least that was what I used to use it for). Nonetheless, that phrase has come to life in its entirety through the experiences I have faced on planet earth. One major questions I asked myself was, “what is the use of being awake or asleep if you cannot see the reality of life and enjoy it?!” And from that question, the hunger of enjoying life began since 2009.

So , what does “living everyday like your last” NOT mean?
-living like you’re going to die tomorrow and blow away your savings;


-living with no regards for others and having the extremist ‘go getter’ mentality;


– Near death stunts to pump your adrenaline to the max;

 
In that case, what does it mean to “live everyday like it is your last?”
– Thanking God you are alive another day with the gift of life;


-Thinking on the present day and saving your anxieties in yesterday i.e. don’t be anxious for anything; Philipians 4:6 : ‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.’


– Living in the pleasures of the moment responsibly which brings fullness of joy;

‘Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things’ …or as I like to say ‘ponder on these things peeps!!!’-Philippians4:8 .
