How would you spend your days if your doctor told you there was nothing else they could do to treat your cancer?
I read the heartbreaking story this week (and maybe you did, too) about country superstars Joey and Rory.
Joey was told there wasn’t anything else that her medical team could do regarding her cancer. The family was going to go home, get rid of the calendars, and live life to the fullest.
I hope none of us ever face that diagnosis. But if you do, I hope you go home and live just like Joey is doing, living like today is your last.
Being intentional and purposeful is so important if you want your life to have meaning.
It’s so easy to let the busy schedules, daily chores, and minor irritations dictate your life.
I know the dishes still need done, clothes still need washed, and meals need made… but what will define your legacy? A workaholic to the end? Or the woman who enjoys family, plays board games, likes to snuggle, prays together, and gives a lot of hugs and kisses?
So how is living like today is your last even possible?
- It’s purposeful choices like forgiving others, expressing love, and using your gifts to serve others.
- It’s saying no to things that aren’t on your priority list.
- It’s saying yes to those that are!
- It’s giving just as much as receiving.
- It’s resting in God.
- It’s doing what you are passionate about.
- It’s slowing down and trying new things to savor life.
I don’t know about you but I’d rather live a month with purpose and Intentional choices rather than a lifetime of ho-hum and get to the end with a long list of regrets.
Embrace today. Love today. Live today…like it’s your last!
