A corny ad was coming on television - it was advertising the beauty of Michigan
But it started with the line
All of us have roughly 25,000 mornings - give or take
It so made me pause - so funny to think of the days we have as a finite number of days
With our mortality an immutable fact it is truly a wonder how much time we waste in all the useless emotions
I shook off all the work related angst that is an undercurrent in my life these days
Anyway the day was sunny( and we were perched at the edge of a rainy week )
So we decided to leave all the chores ( cooking laundry etc ) and spend the day in the park
What says Spring more clearly than wearing shorts for the first time,running in the park and flying a kite ?
Living each day as though it was your last - has always seemed so silly to me- would you not buy insurance , would you spend all your money , would you make maudlin speeches to all your loved ones , would you eat all the chocolate you could find
As I would surely do if it was my last day
But to live each day as though it were one of 25,000 ( give or take )
Once gone, irrevocably lost
Now that makes complete sense
