What If You Only Had 2 Weeks to Live?

What if?
The question above where true?
What would that look like? How would you live? What would you do differently?

 I heard someone on a podcast awhile talking about how he knew someone who had been told by their doctor that they only had a few months to live. And it got me thinking, what would that be like for me? For you? What would we do differently if we thought we only had so long to live. I have been in what they like to call a "Slump" recently. I haven't been my normal self, I've been a lot more negative and just unhappy. I haven't been motivated or willing to do anything. But thinking back on this topic broke me free this morning. It caused me to feel nauseous about the way I was acting, especially toward my family. I put things into perspective by asking myself, "If you died next week, would you be happy with your life?" My answer was no. I wouldn't. I wasn't being the person that everything usually sees, I wasn't really sure why, but that's another subject. I wasn't who I wanted to be. This morning I had a revolution, if we all lived like we could be gone next Tuesday, boy would we live differently. But speaking truthfully, I might just die next Tuesday, I do not  know when I am going to die. You do not know when you are going to die. That's just a fact of life. So those things that are on your bucket list. Do them NOW, that person you want to be friends with but you're not sure if they'll like you TALK to them, that job you want to start DO it, that person you want to help HELP them, that hobby you want to start DO it, Wave to people, Laugh, Be truthful, Be funny, Be bold, Smile, DO that thing you're so afraid of doing, PURSUE your Dreams, Text that friend you haven't heard from in awhile, Read that book you want to read, take up water skiing, go on that dream vacation, remodel your bedroom, heck remodel your house, Be Daring, LIVE FOR TODAY because tomorrow, might not be here.

So now i'd like to ask you,
What would you do differently if you only have 2 weeks to live?
What would it be like to live like that?
And finally i'd like to challenge you to
DO IT.

  1. Well, for one thing, I'd find a way to freeze myself in time so that I could wait until the next season of One-Punch Man is out so that I could watch it before I died...


    In all seriousness though, it's a good question, and it is one that I personally don't think of enough. I mean, I could die at any moment. Car crash, random mugging, meteor, flying cow. God tells us to redeem the time, because we don't know what the future holds. Thanks for the reminder. :)

Everything You Need To Be Happy Is Inside You

Let's face it, at the end of the day, all you have is yourself. Yes, family is important, relationships are important, but at the end of the day, it's all you baby. Are you going to be happy? Or are you going to let people around you decide that for you? You are the person with the most power in your life. It's your choice to be happy. The things around you, the people around you don't get to decide who you are and what makes you happy or what makes your life good. You decide how you react to your circumstances. It's up to you. Your emotions don't have to be controlled by the things that happen to you. It's only when you react to the circumstances that they have power over your emotions. If you rely on your inner-self to be happy and not your circumstances, they won't have power over you. Stop thinking there's something wrong with you or that you are missing something. There's nothing wrong with you, and you are not missing anything. You already…

There's a Reason for Everything

It's hits me once and awhile, and i cherish these moments, why something happpened to me and what i learned from it. I realizse why i went through something, or why i did something even when i had no idea at the time why i should do that. I love it when my memorises come back to me. Something i haven't thought of since it happened and i didn't even know i had that memory.
 That's how i know everything happens for a reason, and that's how i can believe that. Becuase i know that someday in my future i will realize why today happened. I will discover the reason for today even though i might not see it right now. I will remember the choices i made today and learn from them and learn why i chose them, and ultimately learn more about myself. 
There is a reason for whatever it is that is in your life right now. You might be doing really well and so many things are good and like they're falling into place, or you might feel like everything is falling apart and like lif…

You're Not Invisible

I've felt invisible. I know someone reading this has felt it too. You feel like there are so many people around you but you're not seen by any of them. Their all oblivious of your presence. You're another face in the crowd.

But let me tell you, 
I See You. 
You are seen. You are acknowledged. Don't fall into that downward spiral of thinking that no one cares about you. Catch yourself before you fall. Sometimes we feel neglected when we really aren't. We're being dramatic. I know I sound insensitive but trust me I've been there too. I'm there right now as I write this. There are people all around me yet I feel like nobody cares. And then out of nowhere, someone talks to me or smiles at me and I realize I'm not invisible. I realize I am seen. 
Let me be that voice, that person that comes over to you right now and asks how you are doing. I see you and everyone else does too. You Matter and you have to believe that because I can tell you what I think o…
