[14.10.2011] If today was your last day ….


Today, I accidentally heard a touchable song which has impressed me a lot. The lyric of this song is really meaningful. It’s about things man would do if today was his last day.

Sometime, I have heard from others saying “what if”, “regret” or something like that. But to be honest, those words are not in my dictionary because I have been trying my best every single second I live in this life. There is no second chance for you to turn back the hand of time to make a change, so why don’t you drive your own life as if today was your last day.

I am absolutely convinced by the song’s lyric, especially sentences that were marked with red color from the below lyrics. When hearing this song, it recalls me about a song named “If tomorrow never comes” which is performed by Ronan Keating. Both two songs encourage man to live as if they would not see the sun tomorrow, hence, man has to live as the most meaningful day for today as possible. Someone has said that  “The past is history, the future is a mystery, and Today is a gift. That is why we call it the present”. I always have this in mind where life is too short to stop at a junction. Why? Reason is life is short. We can’t plan when we want to die. It comes naturally. That’s why we must not procrastinate things. What we can do today, we should do and not delay it for another day.  Just like when you want to say sorry, thank you, I love you, I miss you, I appreciate you, etc to a particular person, said it while you can before it’s too late. You will never know what happens to the person or what happen to you tomorrow.  Do not tell me, well I do not have time, and I’m pretty busy, so what? Can’t you just even send a message? Email? Or even give a phone call? A minute or two will not harm you nor delay your work. Do you know when you keep saying you are busy, you will never free, when you keep saying you have no time, you will never have time, when you keep saying that you will do it tomorrow, there will never be tomorrow. Isn’t it so true? We human always say well tomorrow we will do it, tomorrow I will settle it. But, do we settle it? Or we will end up saying tomorrow after tomorrow?

Therefore my brothers and sisters, live your life properly for the life we have now is an opportunity that only happens once in a lifetime.

“If Today Was Your Last Day”

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

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

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

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?
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

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

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?
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.
