If you knew you would die tomorrow
The question is this:
“If you knew you would die tomorrow, would you feel cheated today?”
You have aspirations for the future, yes. You have things you’d love to do, be, or become, yes. You might even have some nagging question or admission you know you need to share with someone important, yes.
But are you satisfied right now? Are you satisfied with the process of living? Have you followed-through with everything you know you need to do? Have you tied off all the loose ends?
- Maybe an apology?
- Maybe an “I forgive you”?
- Maybe an “I love you”?
I know for myself it’s easy to feel like life is amazing, except that one, little thing, whatever it is. And asking that question usually reveals it. And usually forces me to want to change it.
Because I want to live every moment of my life answering the question with yes.
So, if you knew you would die tomorrow, would you feel cheated today?
