Many people live as if it’s a guarantee that they will still be breathing well into their 80’s and 90’s. Although the average life span suggests that most of us will have a relatively long life, nothing is guaranteed. The only thing we can know for sure is that we’re all running out of time. Every day that goes by is a day closer to the day we take our last breath.
Whether you’ll last until your 90th birthday or not even get to experience the next calendar change, only time will tell. Many people reach the end of their life full of regret. Once they realize their time is coming to an end, they wish they had used their time better. Don’t wait for that day to come to realize your time here is limited. At the end of each day, ask yourself if it was a day well spent. If it wasn’t, make sure the next day WILL be.
In the end, whether you’ll be full of regret or filled with satisfaction will all depend on the accumulation of how each of your remaining days will turn out. Good or bad, it’s mostly up to you.
