Like There’s No Tomorrow

Blog Writing Challenge Day 22.  Woot!  The subject?  “Like There’s No Tomorrow.”

Things you should do like there’s no tomorrow.  Or at least try.  Just once.

  • Tell your children or family members that you love them.
  • Let yourself cry over a video, movie or song.
  • Go on adventures.  Lots and lots of adventures.
  • Enjoy a gooey, sweet and delectable dessert.  Do not feel guilty.

  • That person that gives you butterflies and makes you shake?  Make love to him or her with complete abandon.  During that time, you don’t have a belly, stretch marks or back hair.  You are the most handsome or gorgeous person in the world.  Remember.  Complete abandon.

  • When you greet someone or pass by a person, smile as if seeing him or her has made your day.  Even if you are having a bad day, add that smile.  The results will surprise you.  Make it a game.  TRUST ME.  With my kids alone, when one of them walks in the room, I stop what I am doing, look them in the eye and smile.  I make it a point and see such a result.  How would you feel walking in to a room only to see that person stop, look up and grin at you?  Pretty.  Darn.  Good.

 I would love to hear two things you think people should do like there’s no tomorrow.  Pleeeeaaasseeee?

(I am looking up and grinning at you….)

  • Katherine, you make a really good point about the smiles.  It can definitely make a person’s day.  Oh, and I’ll take a big slice of homemade pecan pie, please. 😉

    great post!

  • Ron

    Katherine, each and everyone of these things on your list are outstanding!

    And you are SO RIGHT about smiling! I try to do that everyday with people on the streets because in a city you can get so unconsciously numb about noticing people around you and never making eye contact.

    Have a faaaaaaabulous Friday, my friend!



    P.S. one of the things I think we should all try to do is take chances – even if we’re afraid.

  • A smile, every time! It is the best medicine for anyone.

  • It seems like some of these things one should do every day, last day or not!

  • You pretty much nailed this one! Great post, Katherine.  😉

    Agree with that whole list. Especially the whole loving without abandon. Silly that we all need to be encouraged to do your list. 
    Since there will indeed be no tomorrow some day for me, I wrote a love letter to all my children, and loved friends, and left them with my will. That way, there will be still love from me when there is no tomorrow for me. 

  • Bravo!! Excellent post!!

  • Why do we take what we have for granted until we face the possibility of losing it all? Great post! You’re right. Why wait until tomorrow.

  • totally-super-great post. And I’m going to make sure I enjoy at least THREE things on this list TODAY!
