Today is an important day, the most important day, in fact thinking about it right now, I believe this is the most important day of my life. Sure, there have been days that stand out as spectacular, even life changing, but today has to be number 1.
I am sure at this point you are wondering what I an talking about? Stu what’s happened? What is the big news? Did you win a lottery? Did someone donate 1 million dollars to camp? Did Jennifer Aniston ask you out on a date? Were you named Time Magazines Person of the year?
Still the most important day though!! Still confused? Ok, I will let you in on why today is SO huge, for all of us! It’s because we are alive. We have a choice to live fully! I know, I know… cheesy! But stop and think about it though. Isn’t it great to have an opportunity to do something with your day? To follow up on an idea! To spread love and kindness, to laugh and play! I am in Kingston this morning and I was enjoying a morning coffee at the hotel looking out over the frozen lake, sun shining, bouncing off the white snow and ice. I was reading the paper and opened it up randomly to the obituaries… I started to read… Died at 91, 87, 93, 78… I started to think wow those are full lives. “Survived by their three children 8 grand children and 2 great grandchildren…”
Then I came to Mike’s obit, “Lost his battle to bone cancer at 16, mike is survived by his parents, two brothers and his dog Corky. Mike lived each moment to the fullest, making us laugh even on his last day.” Sixteen, wow. I bet you Mike would have liked today, it would have been the best day of his life because he got just one more. So, today is the most important day of my life… thank you for being part of MY journey and thank you for reading the STUpendous BLOG! Now go and have the greatest day of your life!
