I was reading through some old blog archives at Today's Letters and came across this post that begins "the average life span is 25,550 days." Which got me thinking, how many days have I already lived? I calculated it and realized that oddly enough today is approximately by 10,000th day on earth!
It's weird and crazy to think of life in terms of how many days I've lived, but I found that it gave me a little extra motivation to make the most of today, and tomorrow, and the next day, and the day after that. Being reminded that life is finite has a funny way of making me want to live more fully.
I was reminded of the song Seasons of Love from the musical RENT that says something along the lines of "525,600 minutes. How do you measure a year in the life? How about love?"
Hopefully I have lots more days to keep practicing living and to keep living in love. Hope you do too.
