When I Was On My Deathbed

by admin on

When I was on my deathbed and had minutes to live.

ONLY 2 things crossed my mind.

Did I truly Love my Life?

And

Did I tell my Loved ones how Much they mean to me?

NOTHING ELSE mattered, outside of those final moments.

I am so Grateful that I survived because it forever shaped my outlook.

In a split second, my Life would have ended, and I would not be here today.

After being so close to death I came to understand that we are not promised tomorrow.

When you realize that “THIS is it”

You truly feel Alive.

Each second that passes holds more significance when you know that it’s bringing you closer to death.

Every breath you take brings you closer to the awareness that you won’t be here forever.

You hear your heartbeat differently when you understand that it will stop one day.

I don’t say this to make you fearful,

rather to remind you of the beautiful transience of Life

When you know in your heart that your days are limited,

you make the most of every moment.

That is why I each and every day, I strive to do my best.

I know that every thought, word, and action echoes into eternity far after I’m gone.

My time will come to pass, and so will yours.

The amount of time is irrelevant, the only thing that matters is what you leave behind.

And I don’t mean your wealth or material possessions

Nobody gives a shit about that.

The ONLY thing that matters is the Love that you’ve shared along the way.

So I Urge you to Love.

Love with every ounce of your soul.

Love Yourself

Love the people in your Life.

Love THIS moment,

Because THIS

is ALL

We Have.

I am truly blessed that I was given a second chance.

I celebrate and each and every day that I’m alive.

I cherish every breath I take

Every morning I that wake up above ground is a is a miracle to me.

That is why I smile with gratitude.

The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.

Most people have to almost die,

to truly appreciate life.

I know I had to.

So please learn from my experience.

Don’t wait for someday.

THIS is the DAY.

THIS is the Moment.

Don’t wait for everything to be perfect before you decide to Love your Life.
