Living life like there’s no tomorrow sounds easier than it actually is. For most people, the daily challenges of life can be overwhelming.
As an adult, you have so many things to think and worry about.
You always feel like there’s not enough time in a day.
You could be facing financial or health issues that are placing large bumps in the smooth ride that life is supposed to be.
For older people, the more you start to lose your friends and family, the more the reality of how short life is starts to close in.
You begin to worry about death and the impact it will have on your loved ones.
Yet, it is possible to embrace life as it is in the moment. It’s all about allowing yourself to lose the burdens that control your life.
Allow yourself to start appreciating and understanding that life is for living.
It is also about embracing the inevitability of death and enjoying every single moment you have available.
So, let’s delve into this topic in greater detail. We will share some of the simple things you can do every single day to live your life like there’s no tomorrow.
The Gift Of Life
For those who have a spiritual leaning, before jumping out of bed, thank the Lord for the day ahead.
At the end of the day, you should thank the Lord once again for giving you another day on this earth.
When you genuinely think about the gift of life, you should be able to tackle some hard questions.
These could include:
- Where did I come from?
- Why am I here?
- What is my purpose on this earth?
- How am I different from other people?
- How am I different from everyone else around me?
Understanding the gift of life is something that has been there all throughout time.
Great thinkers like Aristotle, Socrates, Plato, theologians, and scientists have tried to find meaning in this.
Everyone wants to understand human existence. Scientists have the Big Bang Theory, and the religious believe in the existence of God.
The one thing that unites the different camps is the fact that, at some point, all living things die.
While most of us are fortunate enough to know the day we were born, none of us know the day we will die.
So, why do you live life worrying about something that you cannot predict?
How about you start living life like there is truly no tomorrow?
Stop postponing the things that make you happy and do them now.
While we are not saying that you should go overboard, as long as it harms nobody, go ahead and do it.
If you have been planning to take a trip, save some money and go on the trip.
If you have always wanted to learn a new skill, stop procrastinating and start today.
When you bring purpose into your life, you will have less time to worry about other things.
If your job is not bringing you peace and contentment, maybe it is time to consider a new line of work.
We Are Not Promised Tomorrow
Scientists have been tinkering around in their labs looking for a cure for death.
Some people are even preserving their bodies for the day there will be a breakthrough; but to date, there is no success in that field.
So, you can’t go to bed at night knowing for sure that you will wake up the next day.
Why place unnecessary stress on yourself by thinking about tomorrow but forgetting to live today?
The ability to give love is one of the greatest gifts humanity has.
Indeed, being able to attract and receive love is a special feeling that words cannot truly capture.
You may have heard the phrase, ‘Love makes the world go round.’
For most people, love from their family and friends is the one thing that gives them the impetus to continue to exist.
According to the ancient Greeks, there are eight types of love you need to be aware of:-
- Agape love is selfless, unconditional love. For Christians, it is the type of love Jesus had for the world.
- Eros or romantic love is an expression of desire and sexual passion.
- Philia, platonic, or affectionate love is the kind of relationship you have with friends or those you consider equal to you.
- Philautia or self-love is love you have for yourself without going into narcissism.
- Storge or familiar love is how you would describe the love between a parent and a child.
- Pragma or enduring love may start with Eros, but matures into something more enduring.
It would explain why some couples stay together for so long.
- Ludus or playful love is all about infatuation.
- Mania or obsessive love is harmful and can result in disastrous relationships
Within a typical life cycle, you may experience all the different types of love.
Some people do not get to go through things like marriage or children. This, however, does not diminish their capacity to give and receive love.
Real maturity comes in when you have a proper balance of self-love which allows you to extend the same to other people.
When you surround yourself with love and project the same, you will attract positivity and generally get to enjoy your life so much more.
Forgive and Forget
When someone hurts you, it is possible to forgive them, but most people say they will not forget.
In not allowing yourself to forget the transgressions, you hold on to some of the hurt and anger.
You keep referencing the hurt, and this will most likely impact the relationship you have with that particular individual.
You will also find that you do not have personal peace and may have your guard up at all times.
Here is how to forgive and forget:
- Take stock of the situation to truly understand the source of the hurt or anger.
- Look at what factors could be contributing to your reaction.
Do you perhaps have self-esteem issues that the transgression may have brought up?
Could you possibly be reacting negatively because you are linking it to something else that may have happened in your past?
You need to be very objective when taking stock of the situation.
You may find that you are overreacting or attributing it to the wrong person or situation.
- Decide to forgive. Clinging on to the anger and negativity will only hurt you more.
- Be okay with moving on, even without an apology. Some people can never accept when they are wrong.
In other instances, as hurtful as it may be, you may not always get what you want.
So, be ready to move on by having the right mindset.
- Work towards overcoming negative emotions.
- Look at the situation as an important lesson to help you deal with more difficult issues in the future.
Sometimes, you must cut people off if they keep hurting you.
If you are in an abusive relationship, you may need to remove yourself from the situation.
Reconciliation may not be possible in this case, but you can forgive them without having them in your physical space.
Say What You Need to Say
People who are able to express whatever they are feeling in a particular situation find a quicker resolution.
If you are the type of individual who holds on to things and prefers not to confront issues for the sake of peace, it may be time to change your mindset.
When someone hurts you, take some time to get over the anger.
You must never try to address issues when angry because you may say things that you will regret.
Look for an appropriate time and place to discuss the issue.
Once you say what you need to say, you will find it easier to let go of the pain or anger.
Be Here Now
We give too much of ourselves to things that eventually do not really matter.
Maybe you work 24/7, and your family never gets to see you. Even when you are at home, you are on your laptop, finishing office work.
One day, you wake up to the reality that you have let your best years go by.
You were so keen on acquiring wealth and a fat bank account that the investment you had in family and friends had no place.
While we are not saying you shouldn’t work, your greatest success will be to achieve the right balance.
How about you try to eat dinner with your family almost every single day?
Tell your bosses that you are not available to work on Sundays; that is the time you spend most with your family.
Life is about being here now.
Since there is no promise for tomorrow, do not put off what is important.
Choose To Be Happy
You might be wondering, who makes a choice to be unhappy?
How you live your life is a choice, and you can choose to be happy or sad.
So, what do you need to do to be happy?
- Strive to be the best every time, without putting unnecessary pressure on yourself.
- Surround yourself with the right people who love, respect and uplift you.
- Forget about continually reaching for the unattainable.
Be thankful for what you have, and always remember, someone else may not have the things you do.
- Attitude is everything; adjust your mentality to how you react to situations, and you will see a significant change.
- Smile, smile, smile! It takes a mere 17 muscles for the upward smile motion and 43 to frown.
- Take care of your body and mind.
- Build boundaries and protect your personal space for the sake of peace.
Be ready to remove anything that interferes with this peace.
- Stop basing your life around people’s opinions.
Learn to sift through what you receive and have a rubbish in, rubbish out mental trashcan.
Every Day You Are Living Is a Miracle; So, Live Your Life Like There’s No Tomorrow
Have you ever taken a walk in a cemetery and seen how many people are no longer alive?
Have you ever been to the High Dependency Units or Intensive Care Units in a hospital?
The patients are clinging onto life without knowing what tomorrow will bring.
Any minute, the machines giving them life could let out that beep to show that the patient is no more.
How, then, can you doubt for a minute that every day you are living is a miracle?
Every time you start to feel sorry about your situation, think about those who are no longer here.
Live Your Life Like There’s No Tomorrow Using the Power of Destiny Tuning
You may be working towards achieving your fullest potential.
You have the right focus and are embracing the challenges and opportunities without fear.
Every day, though, you face limitations, uncertainty, and frustration.
Occasionally, you might find that even getting out of bed is so difficult because of a lack of willpower.
Yet you never give up because you tell yourself every single day that you must achieve your goals.
What you are doing without even being aware of it is destiny tuning.
By its simplest definition, destiny tuning is when you take control of your future by manifesting whatever you want out of your life.
Destiny tuning has its basis in the laws of attraction, where you attract what you manifest.
If you are always pessimistic, then you attract negativity, and vice versa.
Destiny tuning is a scientific technique that eliminates the aspect of luck.
You must recondition your mind or mentality to get whatever it is that you wish for in life.
Final Thoughts on how to Live Your Life Like There’s No Tomorrow
If you want to live your life like there’s no tomorrow, it starts with adjusting your thinking.
You must take the appropriate steps to stop focusing on negativity.
Be grateful for what you have, and always be objective about your situation.
Take a deep breath, walk away, or count to 10 before you react to situations.
Learn to forgive and forget; you will bring yourself down by clinging onto pain and anger.
Most importantly, through destiny tuning, you can manifest whatever it is that you want in life.
