If Today Was Your Last Day

Back in 2008, I fell in love with this song. I was going through a difficult time and this song was made for me. I remember watching the video and having tears stream down my face. No matter how many times I listened, I cried as I sang. Music inspires me, it talks to my soul. It was so meaningful that I created a presentation in hopes to inspire others, to give them hope and make “Today” be all they need.

My best friend gave me the best advice
He said each day’s a gift and not a given right
Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind
And try to take the path less traveled by
That first step you take is the longest stride

Fear is made up (False Evidence Appearing Real).

For real. But man, it is a powerful emotion. When in doubt, remember that you get to choose what you think and how you feel. Take the first step even if you can’t see the rest of the staircase. Live boldly, step into the unknown and embrace all the feelings that come with that.

If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?

Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
If today was your last day

Will you be present with your family? With your friends? Will you start today, knowing there is no guarantee for tomorrow? I believe our past has created who we are. It is YOUR STORY and that story helps you help others.

Get clear on where you came from and how that will affect how you impact others in your journey.

Against the grain should be a way of life
What’s worth the prize is always worth the fight
Every second counts ’cause there’s no second try
So live like you’ll never live it twice
Don’t take the free ride in your own life

Put in the work. Commit to being better today than yesterday. Take NOTHING for granted.

Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce old memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you’re dreamin’ of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you finally fall in love
If today was your last day

Would you make your mark by mending a broken heart?
You know it’s never too late to shoot for the stars
Regardless of who you are
So do whatever it takes
‘Cause you can’t rewind a moment in this life
Let nothin’ stand in your way
Cause the hands of time are never on your side

Forgive yourself. Forgive others. Be at peace with who you are and what you’re meant to do. Do whatever it takes because all you have is this moment. Create a vision so big that nothing will stand in your way. Nothing. Nobody. Nada. Cause the hands of time are never on your side.

Live like today is your last day and watch the miracles unfold.

Be joyful. Find your happy. Make an impact.
