I hate to admit this but, I was watching Twilight the other day* and something that Bella says to Edward struck a chord.
“I’m dying already. Every second I get closer, older.”
My first thought: “Wow. Morbid, much?” My second thought: “Well, she’s right.” From the day that we are born, we are dying.
Do we think about that every day? No. Should we? No. What we should do is remember that each day we are here is a gift. Each day that we are presented with life, we are presented with an opportunity. It is up to you whether you take that opportunity or not.
Kris Allen’s song “Live Like We’re Dying” has been playing on repeat in my head lately. I need to work on taking more chances and embracing the opportunities that life presents. Every day could be my last and I don’t want to leave this world with many “what ifs.” So I’m working with the motto “what are you waiting for?” from now on. I’m hoping this will get me moving on some things that I’ve been waiting on for far too long.
What are you waiting for?
“We only got 86,400 seconds in a day to turn it all around or throw it all away.”
*Just to clarify – I was watching it because I couldn’t find anything else and I think the movie is hysterical.
