It was like any other morning. The sun rose above the horizon, filling the sky with hues of pink, purple and red. A gentle breeze drifted across the earth, carrying with it the leaves that blanketed the ground.
Kissing his wife goodbye, he headed out the door for work. As he drove, he smiled at an elderly couple as they walked hand in hand down the sidewalk with their dog.
Waiting at the bus stop, he watched as mothers waved goodbye to their children as they boarded their school bus.
He continued on.
The traffic was lighter than normal and for that he was grateful. At a stop light, he saw a woman singing in her car, and another laughing with her passenger.
The light turned green. He drove ahead. Looking to his left, he saw it. A car racing through the intersection heading straight for him. Everything went dark.
He saw himself lying on the ground. This was his last day.
Regrets overwhelmed him. There was so much that he wanted to do, but never did. Things he should have done, but was always too busy.
He thought to himself, “Had I known that this was going to be my last day, I would have…”
We never know when our last day will be.
Imagine that this were you. Your day starts out like any other, but unknown to you, it will be your last. Would you have regrets about things left undone, words left unsaid?
If you were then given one more day, what would you do with it?
Have your answer?
Then what are you waiting for? Why wait until it’s too late? Do it now. The only moment we are guaranteed, is this moment right now.
