Have you ever thought about what you would do if you found out you only had one week to live? I know I haven’t. But after the past few weeks of highs and lows, laughter, hidden pain, a sense of great friendship, being overwhelmed, and the eerie feeling of depression lingering over me, I would just want to do more than just go on impromptu adventures and see the world….
I’d want to do everything I thought was impossible to do! I’d touch the lives of everyone I possibly could in the most positive ways possible! I’d fall in deeply love even if the other person didn’t feel the same way. I wouldn’t let anything or anyone stop me from expressing myself or sharing my story. I’d sing on a stage in front of thousands of people! And much, much more! I would push and push until my last breath to change the hand that fate would’ve dealt me.
So why can’t I live that way now? This, I’ve asked myself a million times. And I come up with more than one excuse every time I ask. But why is that? Why do I have such little faith in myself and my abilities to succeed? I can honestly say that I don’t have the answer to that right now but I do know that I’m going to stop dwelling my failures. I’m going to accomplish everything I listed and more! Starting right now, from this very moment, I’m going to change the course of my life! I’m going to do what makes me happy and not care what anyone else thinks. As long as it makes me happy and isn’t hurting anyone around me, I’m going to do what my heart desires.
I am going to live as if I only have one week left…..
