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



  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. :)

    1. Haha :P
      Very true, I'm glad you liked it. =)

In this Moment

Hey you, right now I want you to think about something in your life that makes you happy. It could be anything. A hobby, a job, a food, a person. What is it? Once you know, dwell on it for a second. Now think about the last time you got to do it. Were you happy then?

Life is so short. It goes by quicker than we can imagine. The next time you're doing the thing you thought about, the one that makes you happy, put a smile on your face. Even if you've had the worst week of your life. You're getting to do something that makes you happy. Don't waste this moment. So many people would love to be doing the things you get to do, yet they can't. So even if you have to paste a fake smile on your face, don't forget just how lucky you are to be living the life you are living. To be reading, drawing, dancing, writing, or creating, or singing, or even walking, or breathing. Don't take those things for granted, even though it's so easy too. Things happen, your circumst…

Life's too short

In the words of my drivers' training instructor, "Life's too short, you know? Live a little. Life's too short."
And she's right, life is too short.
Don't waste it.
Don't be petty, don't have regrets, be nice to people, do good things, have fun, BE SPONTANEOUS! It's summer now! Live a little! Some of the most enjoyable things I have ever done were completely spontaneous and crazy!

Don't Take Life Too Seriously.

That should be on a t-shirt or a coffee mug or something.
My point is, Live Your Life. I cannot tell you how much it pains me to see people living without a cause, or without adventure, or they are letting go of their potential to be someone wonderful, and do wonderful things. Maybe simply because they were told by someone that "they can't" or "they aren't good enough to". But that's completely not true. YOU HAVE POTENTIAL. YOU ARE WONDERFUL. And you were made by God to do incredible things! You just ha…

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…
