I have always found the saying “Live each day as if it were your last” to be inspirational, but a bit too pressure filled. My “before it is too late” list is too long. So I switched it around to “Live each day as if it were your first.” Because first days are full of wonder, curiosity, excitement, nerves, all sorts of possibilities and unlimited opportunities.
Just think of your first day at school, first day at a new job, first date, first competition, first game of the season, first trip to a new country or first child. Not every school was joyful, not every job great, and not every date worth remembering. Still the excitement of not knowing and wondering is always something that piques my interest. The bottom line is we must live a life that makes each of our unique selves happy.
How do you want to live each day? The same? Different?
