What if today was your last day?

This past eighteen months has been a whammy for everyone. As I grow older, the reality of death becomes more apparent. People I know are dying of various causes, as is natural, however when I was younger, it wasn’t something I consciously thought about. Until recently. People I knew have passed over the past year who I considered young , and it saddened me that their lives were cut short. The memories they share with their loved ones and who they were at the core of thier being is the legacy they left behind.

“What about my life?” I pondered over coffee, “what if today was my last day?” Would I have regrets? What would those who knew me remember about me? Would there be things on my bucket list left untouched? Would there be people I became estranged from which I put off mending the broken fences?

I decided to create a small journal to log my thoughts. What am I appreciative of, what do I want to do? Are there broken fences I need to mend with people? What about the steps I’ve been taking to grow as a Christian, did I do enough to be better?

I made this 4″ by 4″ Journal from scratch to log my thoughts. It’s cute and small enough to carry around.

How to make your own journal like the one above.

I followed the below video to create the above journal. I didn’t ahve book binding tape, so I used a ribbon. It was an easy begginner project too.

Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.

Ernest Hemingway
