I was listening to one of my playlists last night and the song If Today Was Your Last Day by Nickelback came on and got me to thinking just a bit.
I think that with the Coronavirus Pandemic that is swirling in the headlines and as cases have gotten or are getting closer to our own little lives that is a question that many more of us of all ages are asking of ourselves more often. I know that as I have gotten older and passed that magical 60th birthday, it was a question that I did ask myself more often even before now and with the pandemic, it is one that is much more pertinent and real than it ever has been to me.
I fully plan to live to a ripe old age, but...well right now nobody really knows what will happen. Even so, I will not go without a fight and I imagine that many of us out here are thinking the same way.
Dying is not something that most people do not like to think about and definitely not talk about all that often. It is just too scary to think about, but with the death totals climbing and people becoming sick around us it is becoming a topic more and more are opening up about at the oddest times.
So if I knew today was my last day what would I do?
I hope that I would continue to be me, yes I would be scared, but I learned a lot about dying from my Father last October and his role modeling is something that I would like to believe is what I would attempt to copy and go with dignity the knowledge that I leave behind a life well-lived.
Although I am like all of humankind who has wondered over the millennia, what happens after we die?
If today was your last day - What would you do?
