If you were to live as though you are facing death at all times, you'd likely become more particular, conscious, and intentional, yet less censored and more bold in your daily choices. You might start to realize that life is not about getting certain things or going certain places. It's about something you experience right here, right now. If you're busy trying to get something, you miss the actual experience. That reminds me of people who care more about getting the photo of where they're at or what they're about to eat versus actually pausing and fully breathing in the location, and tuning into all their senses, tasting the food, in that moment.
In The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself, Michael A. Singer says, "The only thing there is to get from life is the growth that comes from experiencing it. Life itself is your career, and your interaction with life is your most meaningful relationship."
How would your day, today, be different if you thought it was your last? Would you reach out to a long lost friend? Spend time outside? Eat what felt nourishing to your soul? Make love? Quit your job? Think about it and try at least one action to honor this reality. Appreciate every experience of your day. After all, life is fleeting and today could actually be the last.
