  • If I died today...

  • would I be proud of the life I lived?

  • Death.

  • It's the one thing that puts everything else into perspective.

  • Thinking about your own death can be the best thing you can do for your life and how you live your life before you die.

  • Why?

  • Because it forces you to reflect on some very important questions.

  • If I died tomorrow... was I happy?

  • Would I be proud of the person I have become?

  • Was there love in my life?

  • Did I give enough love?

  • Did I show those I love the real me? Did I live the life that I wanted to live?

  • Or was my life made up of things I should've let go?

  • How could I have brought more happiness to my life and the people I really cared about?

  • Could I have done things better? Differently?

  • How? Will I be missed?

  • What will I leave behind?

  • Will anyone on earth be better because I was there?

  • Thinking about your own death forces you to self-examine your life and gives you the opportunity to take responsibility for that life.

  • For the areas that you have not been at your best, and therefore, the opportunity to decide to do better from this moment forward.

  • Sitting alone with your thoughts and thinking about your passing is perhaps the healthiest thing you can do for your life, if you want to improve it.

  • And the truth is, none of us know if we're going to wake up tomorrow.

  • None of us come here to Earth with any guarantees.

  • This is why we should all, very often, think about the only real guarantee.

  • And this is of our death and the possibility it might be sooner than we think.

  • And because of that, leave nothing for tomorrow.

  • If you don't like who you've been up to this moment, make a change and make it now.

  • If you have a broken relationship with someone you really love, mend it now.

  • If you can give more love, give it now.

  • If you can play more and work less, decide and commit to do that now.

  • If you can do anything to improve the quality of your life, make that commitment now.

  • Write down everything you must change in your life now. Everything that cannot wait for tomorrow.

  • Every phone call you need to make, every apology,

  • every hug you need to give, everything you need to say.

  • Decide to stop caring about what other people think of you.

  • Start living the life you really want to live.

  • Start feeling the way you deserve to feel.

  • Start loving the way you want to love.

  • Bring your defenses down. Drop your guard and open your heart.

  • Write a list of the amazing experiences you're going to commit to experience before you go.

  • Think about how much better all of your relationships will be when you open up.

  • When you are your true self, when you are present, living in the moment and let go of all care for other's opinions and judgments.

  • Think about the amazing life you can live when you let go of society's expectations and the seriousness most people live with.

  • Get excited about your life.

  • Love your life while you are living it.

  • Your new life... starts now.
