Death is often thought of as a morbid subject and yet it also has the power of shaping the decisions we make. When we consider our own mortality we start to think of “what if’s” and “if not now then when?”
Just to clarify, I’m a firm believer that we are immortal spirits but our time within these physical bodies is limited to stints of just a few short years. That perception can be used to our advantage because very often we make decisions just based on fear and underlying belief that we’ll still have the opportunity to do something in the future e.g. the chance to tell someone that you love them. But “what if” today was your last, what would you do differently? Not only if it was your last day, but what if it was the last opporunity you had to a see a loved one, how would you treat them differently?
