Wake Up Call! – Is This The Day?


What would you do differently if this was the  day – your last day?

A friend set off to work and kissed his spouse goodbye as he did each day. Except this was no ordinary day. It was the day when he had a heart attack and died at work. I was stunned by the news – 53 is way too young to die. Death has a way of shaking you up with by making old questions seem new.

I’ve been wondering what choices you or I make each day, or do we even consciously make them?

The old questions suddenly seem radiant and relevant. What would I like this day to be like? Will I let the people I love know that? What drama and nonsense can I step away from?  What work or choice will nourishing? And so my list goes….

The results seem uncertain other than knowing this – the many things in my control come with choices for how this day might be. If this is your last day what will you choose?


  • Be present to this day
  • Treasure this day with gratitude

Notice the shift that happens when this day is the day!
