One school of thought that have been living by is “to live your day as if it’s your last—for it could be.”
I thought it made a lot of sense. It speaks of urgency – do it now or you may never have the same opportunity again.
Until I realized one thing. Why would I think about my day as my last as a motivation when I can think of it as the start of something that may never end? Maybe I can take a second look at the half-empty, half-filled glass and consider changing the way I have been seeing it.
If I were to live my day as if it’s the beginning of forever, what would have I done?
Obviously, I will live it the best I could with no excuses whatsoever. Besides, if I were to stay longer, why would I love less or serve less or sell less or perform less? If today is the beginning of forever, I will put my heart into it. I will love more, trust more, serve more.
Whatever you do in your life, live your day as if it’s the beginning of forever. It’s a better version than looking forward to the end. This time, let’s look forward to the beginning.
