We celebrate our lives one day each year, the day that we came into this world. My birthday by the year is October 16th. So , on that day, I reflect on the past , prognosticate about the future, and start a new year on my life. But, what if we measured our birthday by the day instead of the year.? How would we live our lives?
I found out today that I have lived 20,950 days on this earth. Wow, makes me sound really old!
Now, while I can remember most years of my life and a little about what I did in those specific years, but,hm,-can't seem to remember much about those 20,950 specific days. I was taught as a child to make everyday count. So, if I start today, and make everyday count, I am sure my life will be much different than when I total my age in years. What do you think?
I have seen 20,950 sunrises and sunsets. Each of them begin and end a life. Each day is a new life.
I read a great quote about measuring your life in days. "your time is short, don't waste it living someone else's' life."
Today, my life is a blank sheet of paper, the story is untold, and I alone can write this chapter. What will I write today?
Happy 20,950th birthday to me, and Happy Birthday to all of you.
