Love Today Like There is no Tomorrow

We never know when our souls will decide it is time to leave this earthly experience. So, it is imperative that we live each day as though there is no tomorrow.

It is Imperative to Live Like There is no Tomorrow

The Truth is: we absolutely never know when it will be our time to leave this earthly plane.

Recently, a friend got up as usual, took her shower, and then sat on the side of her bed. She told her husband, "I am feeling light headed." She took two deep breaths and died.

There was no time for her to call her daughter. There was no last kiss for her grandchildren. There was not even enough time to tell her husband goodbye, despite the fact that he was in the same room.

I look around my world today and ask myself how would I be leaving things for my family if my soul decided it was time to transition. There are many worldly things that I need to address. The death of a friend always causes me to focus on pending things that I need to put in order.

Five Quick Ideas for Living Today as if There is no Tomorrow:

1) Forgive everyone, everything right here and right now. It serves no one when we carry around old resentment. In fact it is just the opposite. As Malachy McCourt once said, “Resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die.” Metaphysically speaking, resentment could well be the root cause of cancer. Let go of every hurt you have and set yourself free.

2) Leave nothing undone, nothing unsaid. Make a list of everyone you love and haven’t told in a while. Sit down today and call them or write a card or email and let them know how much they mean to you. Combine this with step one above and you heal yourself and bless others. Consider these wise words from ee Cummings: "I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart."

3) Make amends for any wrongs you know you have committed. Not only does this bless the person you possibly offended, it also sets you free of any guilt or shame you have carried. You don’t want to go to your grave with anything unresolved. Regardless of whether you believe in an afterlife or not, the simple truth is that once you die it is too late to say you're sorry. Consider these words from Dale Turner: "It is the highest form of self-respect to admit our errors and mistakes and make amends for them. To make a mistake is only an error in judgment, but to adhere to it when it is discovered shows infirmity of character."

4) Next, forgive yourself for every perceived imperfection, flaw, or activity which you wish you had not done. Even though the past can never be undone, you can rewrite it in your memories. Love yourself and know that if you could have done better, if you could have been wiser, you would have done and been. That is the plain and simple truth. Regret is a plague. Let go of the past and love yourself just as you are. This probably should have been suggestion number one, because it is so significant.

5) Finally, resolve to love each and every moment you have left. Look at life as though you were seeing it for the first time and you are in-Love with everything you see. Richard Bach, one of my favorite authors said, “True love stories never have endings.” Become that type of lover for every moment of every day. Commit right now, to yourself, “I will love each and every minute that life offers.” You will be amazed at the beauty which you have overlooked in all the days you have been asleep.

Resolve to Love each moment

Whether we stay in this earth school for 100 more years or we leave today, it will all be but a wink of an eye when we return to Spirit. Affirm for yourself: "I am renewed in my commitment to love today like there is no tomorrow."

What if we all made the same choice? WOW. Just imagine the world we would create.

So uplifting Onenow, thanks for sharing.

Everything happens for a purpose and we learn more from our mistakes. Move on looking ahead is my motto and that has stood me in good stead.

When the call comes, we should be prepared to leave without looking back! siva

Thanks Siva.
It is certainly a good idea to leave as little undone as is humanly possible for there are no guarantees about tomorrow, or an hour from now for that matter.

I appreciate you.

A fantastic article my friend and I agree with everything you say here. We must live as if there were no tomorrow. In February of 1995 I left my home for a couple of hours and returned to find my 49 year old wife dead from a massive heart attack. We had three grown children. I know that we must love, forgive and enjoy life right now. Hug and kiss your grandchildren and show your family how much you love them. You may not get another chance in this lifetime. Blessings.
