Live Today As If It Were Your Last, What a Day was yesterday is a memory tomorrow

Updated on January 15, 2011


The best advice one can give when it comes to how one must life life: live each day as if it was your last day on Earth. One should explore every possibility to increase your understanding and knowledge of the world. Let nothing hold you back as life is too short to turn around and say “oh I should of done that.” My dad always tells me “never put off til tomorrow what can be done today” and he's right in every sense. Tomorrow may never come.


The brain has a unique way of thinking. If you tell it that you will do this task tomorrow, the brain thinks okay tomorrow. But when tomorrow comes, it never gets done. So, tell your brain you will do it on this day or this date; that way it will remember and the task will be done.


Don't let fears rule your life. I was really nervous to stand up in front of the class and say the prepared seminar this week. But I stood up there, nervous, and said it. When I was done, the best feeling in the world overcame me when I heard them clap and congratulate me. It was all worthwhile. I have a fear of driving too, but I plan to over come that fear too. I won't let anything hold me back and neither should you! Stop dwelling on the past. Learn from your mistakes and move on, taking the knowledge with you. It's pointless mulling over the past. It's gone. Finished. Leave it be. And so I leave you with the song that inspired this hub. Below will be a link to the song to view and listen to.


Nickelback – If Today Was Your Last Day



my best friend gave me the best advice
he said each day's a gift & not a given right
leave no stone unturned
leave your fears behind
& try to take the path less travelled by
that first step you take is the longest stride


if today was your last day
& 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 had?
if today was your last day

against the grain should be a way of life
what's worth the price is always worth the fight
every second counts 'cause
there's no second try
so live like you're never livin twice
don't take the free ride in your own life

if today was your last day
& 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 had?
would you call those friends you've never seen?
reminisce old memories?
would you forgive your enemies?
would you find that one your dreaming of?
swear up & down to God above
that you'll finally fall in love?
if today was your last day

if today was your last day
would you make it up 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 nothing stand in your way
cause the hands of time are never on your side

if today was your last day
& 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 had?
would you call those friends you've never seen?
reminisce old memories?
would you forgive your enemies?
would you find that one your dreaming of?
swear up & down to God above
that you'll finally fall in love?
if today was your last day

      Fantastic hub for reminding me the beauty of life and the importance of moments. Just yesterday my blood pressure plummetted so low that i thought this was my last day. But with Medical help and some kind men' support i was able to live to be born again. :-)

      Love
