If this was my last day on earth, how would I live it?
If this was my last day on earth, I want to be remembered. I want people to smile as they remember good times we had together. I know it sounds morbid, but some of the readings in The Master Key Experience got me to thinking about it.
I want my mom to remember the times we went to restaurants that she wanted to go to and if she did not want to go inside, I want her to remember that I was willing to sit in the car and eat.
I want her to remember the funny jokes we laughed at as she helped me after one of my countless surgeries. I want her to remember the times we looked through photo albums reminiscing about the past. If this was my last day on earth, I would want to spend time with my mom really being present with her.
I want my siblings to remember the times I dropped by just to say “Hi” and to sit down for a chat. I want them to remember the stories that we told over and over again because they were just so funny, and all true. If this was my last day on earth, I would want to spend time with my siblings just being together.
My Nephews and Nieces
I want my nephews and nieces to remember me as the one who spent tons at the candy store before going to the movie and loaded up her purse. I want them to remember me as the one who came to their events and was beaming from ear-to-ear because she was so proud of them.
I want them to remember that I always did things they wanted to do. Things like making gingerbread men and houses, going shopping, and sightseeing around Atlanta. If this was my last day on earth, I would want to spend time with my nephews and nieces just doing whatever makes them happy.
I want my friends to remember me as loyal, tightlipped, and someone they could count on to be there when they needed me. Someone who would just show up ready to help in any way. Whether it is packing, moving, a ride to the grocery store, to listen or just to sit quietly with them while they process something.
I want them to smile when they remember all the meals we shared together and the times we laughed so hard that we all had tears running down our faces. If this was my last day on earth, I would want to be with my friends helping any way I can, then laughing over dinner until our cheeks hurt.
“I will live this day as if it is my last. This day is all I have and these hours are now my eternity. I great this sunrise with cries of joy as a prisoner who is reprieved from death. I lift mine arms with thanks for this priceless gift of a new day.”Og Mandino – The Greatest Salesman in the World
I have no way of knowing when my last day on earth will be, so I will live each day doing more of all of these things. These are the people who mean the most to me. I will spend more time with them because I love them, and I will let them know how much they mean to me. If this were your last day on earth, how would live you live it?
