If tomorrow was your last day. And other social media DOHs. Five Minute Therapy.

Do amazing things

Yesterday, Jessica Northey asked an important question on her Facebook wall.

If tomorrow was your last day on Earth, what would you want to do?

It’s an important question because it focuses our heart on the things that matter most to us. It’s a question that asks us who we are, what we hope for, and what must we do in this world?

If tomorrow was your last day on Earth, what would you want to do?

Whatever your answer is – it is not just about what you would do if tomorrow was your last day. Whatever answer you give is really about what you want to do today. Right now.

Look at the stars and how they shine for you

Whatever your problems. Whatever your fears. When you get what you want and not what you need.

Whatever you have done wrong, you can still do amazing things. You can still love. You can still shine. No matter what you’ve done. Or didn’t do, yesterday.

Because the things that matter in your heart are beautiful and good things. Amazing things. Stonger than steel. Harder than diamonds. Bright as the stars.

Learn from your mistakes

And this is what I’d be doing – if today is my last day on Earth. I’d be encouraging you. I’d draw a line for you – a line from here to happiness.

I’d be hoping that this message touches your heart and inspires you to do amazing things.

And this is what I’m doing. And if you don’t hear from me ever again, God bless you.

I’ve just told you everything that I really had to say to you. I spoke my heart with you. And I’ll leave you with a question that will always be with you – a question that might encourage you across all your days and nights.

If tomorrow is your last day on Earth, what amazing things must you do today?

  1. hmmm…if this was my last day on earth it wouldn’t really make any difference because everything that matters to me is on the other side of the globe. i guess i’ll just fucking get wasted haha! thanks for another interesting post!

    One day is not a lot of time Stan. I’d probably have to write my last post for my blog but what would be the point in that – nobody’d read it! LOL
    Sorry, I can’t think seriously about things like this. I tried and look how it turned out.
    P.S. Oh, OK, for YOU, I’ll try again. I’d get both my kids on Facetime and tell them (again) that I love them. I’d go visit my Dad and my sister and call my sister and brother and my closest friends and tell them what they mean to me. I would snuggle with my husband and watch the sunset. And I would do that blog post – for posterity! 😉 Better? What would you do?

    This blog post is what I did. Because I couldn’t take tomorrow for granted. My heart couldn’t bear putting off something so important. [smile]

  4. I would spend the day reading your blog! xo

    Wow what a questions and what to think about.

    I would have to say I spend my day with my family.
    They have and all will be my life. I would try again
    to make up with my sisters and brother and see my
    other 2 kids.

    I would tweet like i all ways have and give what i could
    from my heart.

    Plus talk to you on the phone because it doesn’t seem
    we will ever met each other.

    Than by this time it be night time and i would gather
    my family around the tv give them all a big hug and kiss
    and tell them i love them. Than watch some sappy movie
    like Ghost till the end came.

    Take care my friend

  6. If tomorrow was my last day on earth, I would try my damnest not to be stuck online writing something. Well, maybe a tweet and Facebook status to say “FML!”

    I would spend my time out in nature, walking around, smelling the air, tasting the lake water, and basking in the sun.

    I would spend as much time as I could with my daughter. Given her young age, I would write her a letter to read when she grew up to fill her in on some of life’s more valuable lessons.

    And I would be sure to visit with the people on the streets and try to help them with my last moments on this planet to make up for all the times I have not been able to help them completely.

    Writing something may have an impact, but I would want to see that human smile and have a hand shake with one person more than reading a comment.

    I do most of this daily, but could easily do more. Something for me to work on.

  7. […] am not a juggernaut, but I do have hopes and aspirations to do amazing things. But, most importantly, like a juggernaut, whatever good I have done and whatever good I do is […]

Speak from your heart!
