Imagine what it would be like to have a ticket to the biggest event you’d ever want to experience.
Let’s say it’s the premiere of something. Perhaps a sold-out Broadway show or a stage performance.
Now think about having a ticket to a once-in-a-lifetime event. Could be anything.
Sports fans, maybe your event would be a ticket to the Super Bowl, the World Series, the World Cup, the NBA Finals (assuming there will be another one of those,) or perhaps the Daytona 500.
Now think about having a ticket to a final event of some sort. The finale of a concert tour or possibly the last show/game/performance at a certain venue before it closes.
How special would that be to have a ticket to the first, only, or last edition of a really special event?
Well, I have some good news for you. You already have that ticket. It’s today.
Disappointed? Well just think about the fact that each day is the first one ever, the only one ever, and the last one ever. This is all of today’s date you or anyone will ever get to experience.
That makes today pretty special if you ask me.
My question for you is this: How are you going to look at it? Just another day? Grumbling about what you have to do? Fearing the worst about something on the horizon? Thinking of all the things you don’t have?
I’m guilty of doing all of the above sometimes. Part of the reason I’m writing this is for myself.
Each day is a gift. Each day we get is really, really special. I can’t stress that enough.
My hope is that you will take time today to realize just how much you have going for you by simply having air in your lungs and that you will make the decision to value every day that comes your way.
We’re not guaranteed a tomorrow here on Earth but we are truly blessed to be here today with the opportunity to make the most of our lives.
Make the most of your life, friends. Cherish every day. God bless.
