You know, people often say "LIVE THE DAY AS IT'S YOUR LAST". Do you? I think it's a catchy term and people don't - they procrastinate, regret things, say things they shouldn't to the people they love. DO you sieze the day? Do you live every day as it's your last? I certainly don't ... I think because I don't have enough hours in the day. If you do it, how do you do it?

I think that it's a great term. It allows you to realize that life is fleeting. Luive your going to die tomorrow in the sense that you have today to get it done. Whatever it is . What you do, or what the it is, varies by each person. Live fully basically. I like to do this with people especially. If there is something to express, do it now. You never know if you will have that chance again.

I like Agee's statement, "Live like you're dying". It seems to fight better than "Live the day as it's your last." If we try to cram so much in one day, we may miss things that are beautiful and unique and then regret it. If we live life to the best that we can each day, then so much more can be cherished. I must admit that before I read this discussion I was in a sad mood. Plans for me to see my boyfriend this weekend fell through and it hurts. Reading this made me see that I wasn't living to the best of my day, to the best of living in general. I was allowing the sadness to take control of my day. I'm not saying that the pain and sadness just vanished. Instead it put me in perspective of my day and life. So, I going to do what I can to make it a good day. The Tim McGraw song Live Like You Were Dying continues to play in my head. It's a very good song for a day like today.

I sometimes do, I sometimes don't. I always think that 'timing' is very important in anything, because there are opportunities that knock only once and if you rush things, then you end up destroying the moment. So, sometimes I do. When doing something, I try my best not to procrastinate things and end up not doing them. I always see to it that I have a schedule and follow it to the dot, but of course, I am human, I don't have the discipline as much as I want to. Sometimes, I intentionally don't. Most especially when I'm in a midst of enjoying another's company. Most especially my parents and family. I always see to it that regardless what other 'important' things must be done, nothing is as important as spending quality time with my family and parents.
