Make the Most of Each Day

“Never let a day pass that you will have cause to say, I will do better tomorrow.”

I always try to make the most of each day. I wake up at 5:20 every day, take my dog outside, take a shower, and make my morning cup of coffee. Then I always do something productive, whether it’s reading a book, doing some work for one of my classes or exercising. If today was my last day on this planet, would I really want it to be spent wasting away doing nothing? NO!!

We can’t get a single moment back after it has passed away. Time is so precious and the meaning of it has not been lost on me. That is why I dedicated myself to learning and bettering myself all of these years in prison. I want quality in my life and I want to look back and know that I wasn’t a person who did nothing positive for the world.

My brother died unexpectedly in a motorcycle accident three years ago and it gives me a sense of peace for him to know that he made the most out of his life. He always talked about how he lived his life on his terms and if he wanted to experience something, he’d go for it. He really LIVED and I love that about him. You never know when this day is your last day. Through my own mistakes and also the loss of people I loved dearly, I have painfully learned the lesson of how precious each day is. Make the most of each one and do your best in everything that you do.
