Week 18 – What if Today Was Your Last?

Og Scroll 5This week was mind blowing..!  We started reading Og Mandino’s Scroll V, an extract reads I will live this day as if it is my last. I have but one life and life is naught but a measurement of time.  When I waste one I destroy the other.  If I waste today I destroy the last page of my life.  Therefore, each hour of this day will I cherish for it can never return.  It cannot be banked today to be withdrawn on the morrow, for who can trap the wind? Each minute of this day I grasp with both hands and fondle with love for its value is beyond price. 

I started to reflect on the words of Og, the silly little things in life that we get upset about are of no real importance.  It made me think of my children.  What is my relationship like with them?  What if today was my last? How would I want to be remembered?  So many things were buzzing in my head, but it was not of fear like I would of had years ago.  Instead I was filled with love, peace and appreciation.  I am blessed to be a mother and have three healthy children. I got in touch with each of them and told them how much I loved them. If this was my last day, that is one thing I want them to remember.

I will avoid with fury the killers of time.  Procrastination I will destroy with action; doubt I will bury under faith; fear I will dismember with confidence. Where there are idle mouths I will listen not; where there are idle bodies I will visit not.  Henceforth I know that to court idleness is to steal food, clothing and warmth from those I love.  I am not a thief.  I am a man of love and today is my last chance to prove my love and my greatness. 

Og surely got me to pull my socks up.  I had postponed getting a poster done for our event for so long. After doing my sit this week and pondering on Scroll v, I got to business and designed my poster for our upcoming even, amazing what an app can do.  I have not designed a poster before but with all these exercisises we have been doing my confidence has soared..! It was time to kick procrastination to the curb for good with full on action. It is so easy to take things for granted and put things off for a while and say we will do them tomorrow, but tomorrow just always seems to get extended to the next day and so on.  Time is not promised to us and we have to take each moment to be the best we can be.
