My SIL and I have been talking about death today. How morbid!
It actually started with her saying that we should just love people as much as we can while they are still alive. I completely agree with that. It made me think of the saying that one should life every day as though it’s your last. I don’t agree with that.
If I had to live every day as though it’s my last:
I wouldn’t work. I don’t want to spend my last day working. Which would mean, we would be bums – no money, no home, no food. Please donate.
My kids would be spoiled rotten. I would not discipline them. I would let them have whatever they want.
The would also not go to school, have no education – which is not an option. Spending their day with me. Doing whatever it is that we feel like.
I would be completely obese. I would eat as if there’s no tomorrow (which according to this saying there would not be).
My house would look like a pigsty. I would not be bothered to clean it up!
MMmm…my husband might even get some
So while I agree that one should love as if there is no tomorrow, one cannot live as if there is not.
