I just read the above titled blog by Bentinho Massaro (link to blog below) and wanted to take just a moment to add my own thoughts:

 

There is something to be said about living each day as if it were our last.

There is something to be said about living each day as if it were our last.

Really, if each of us did that would we really be content in the 9 to 5? Sitting in traffic day in and day out? Stuck in the much of the routine of the reality we have carved out for ourselves...because why? Because it's what we are "supposed" to do? Because of what our parents expect us to do? Because society, in all it's wisdom, expects us to?

What do we think would happen, if we actually took a moment or two and seriously considered living out our life as though it was our last? I mean, I sure as heck would not be spending my last day allowing someone to verbally, mentally, or physically abuse me. I would not be spending it doing something that I loath doing. I would not be spending it eating at McDonalds.

No, if I truly committed myself to living each day as if it were my last, I'd be living it up like Queen Latifah in Last Holiday (2006). Traveling, fine dining, giving away all the unnecessary bull-shite stuff that I've accumulated over the past 4+ decades, and most definitely continuing to inspire, write, and empower people - I'd be drinking in the air of life like it was the finest champagne...if I truly lived my life like it was my last.
