My intention with this post isn’t to be morbid. It is quite the opposite!
Being mindful that your time could be up at any moment is a gift. It really is! Carrying death on our shoulder so to speak, helps us understand the impermanence and uncertainty of life.
Yes many of us are know we’re going to die someday. Yet a lot of us live as if we’re going to last forever.
Even if we live to be well over 100 years it is still a very short time to be here on this earth.
Often we are only faced with death when we are forced to confront it. Perhaps a family member or one of our dear friends dies. And whether their passing is expected or unexpected, often it will shake us up.
We are forced to deal with our own mortality. When I die I want to go peacefully knowing that I have lived fully. That I leave with no regrets. And that I can look back with fondness on all the adversity I overcame.
When you die, what do you want to be able to say? Perhaps giving yourself a forced ultimatum could help you?
Let’s say that you only have 6 months left to live… would you continue doing what you are doing every day, or would you make some radical changes?
If you would continue living as you’re living now, you are likely to be in a rare minority. A minority that is living each day exactly how they wish. If you are not in this minority you may feel inspired to change some things about your daily life.
While the big highs and lows of our life can lift us to new heights (or lower us to new depths) it is the days in between that count most. The ordinary, “mundane” days are the ones that make up the bulk of our lives.
So don’t for example live your life in the future, pinning all your excitement or anticipation onto one dream vacation. Live now, every day. This is what matters. Now is the time that makes up the days of our lives…
Death can give us valuable perspective, if we allow it.
