Every Second Counts

How long are you going to live?

Boy, that's a loaded question isn't it?

Has anyone ever asked you that? Have you ever asked yourself that?

I bet if you have, your answer is 70+ years or so right? Anything over that seems pretty resonable doesn't it?

But what happens if tomorrow never comes?

That's a pretty terrifying thought for most of us. Nobody wants to think about their life ending. Unfortunately, the truth is it comes for all of us eventually, no matter how hard or far we run from it, Death is unescapable.

I know, I know, pretty dark topic compared to my normal but bare with me, it's not even my topic.

Seconds, when you break it down, are all we are giving on this Earth. Each second can add up to something amazing and just one can ruin lives.

Seconds become minutes, which become hours, which become days and weeks, which become months then years. How you spend your seconds determines how you spend your life. Every SINGLE second counts.

If you're not careful all those seconds will merge together and leave you wondering what happened to your life. Will yours represent your heart's desires, the things that mean the most to you?

You can't protect the years, months, weeks, or days if you don't protect each second you are given. Each one is truly precious.

Chose only to do the things you love (at least 80% of the time), surround yourself with people who feed your soul, devote your time and energy to the things that really matter to you. Leave everything else behind.

No matter how long you may have here, YOU have enough time for everything that matters most to you. The choice is always yours.

'til next time,
