I’ve Only Been Alive for 7,070 Days

This number may seem odd and random, but I can’t get the thought out of my head lately. Every day that I wake, I can’t help but wonder if my time is being used in the correct manner.

Will I change the world today?

Will I improve myself today?

Will someone need me today?

I am only 19 years old, but the sun seems to be rising and setting faster than ever before. Some of you may agree and others may feel like life is crawling at an unbearable pace. Either way, please realize that every waking day adds to the overall picture of your life.

So many of us, including myself, forget how fortunate we are to be alive and what life offers us. My girlfriend and I were sitting around chatting when I brought the number, 7,070, into discussion. Right away she shot up and asked “Are you spending your days well?”

It’s a riveting question and we could all look in the mirror to ask ourselves this same thing. Are you making today, the only day that matters, the best day possible? It’s time to ask ourselves the tough questions and live our lives to the fullest.
