If today was your last day — Forty Something Life As We Know It

Pretty cool question. I was reading through https://forthysomethingheyhey.com blog and I ran across a interesting question. I’m sure that we all have thought about this question from time to time. “If today was my last day?”

Will I be missed? Will people even care? Hopefully I did alot of good while I was on Earth for the time being? I hope that I left a legacy behind? I hope my loved ones will be alright? So on and so forth. However, I ask myself that very same question. “If today was my last day?” My answer,

Well………….

I would really think much about it because at the tender age of twenty-six I am still learning the importance of this being the day that the Lord has made, being glad and rejoicing in it. I would be ready and fulfilled because I know that while I was alive I handled my business and did everything that fisherofmen was supposed to do. I ceased every moment and opportunity. I made the most out of my life. And didn’t take my life or anyone else life for granted. So, on this day I wouldn’t have any lingering questions, wonders or worries. I would be ready, happy and I would want those around me who I love dearly to feeling the same way. This is my going away party I should be planning a celebration and getting ready for the award that matters the most. Accepting that CROWN OF LIFE.

I heard this song on the radio “If today was your last day…” Please listen to this song at the end of this post. I am a Forty Plusser. So, biological speaking – I am on my “halfway mark”of life. But any day can be your last day! So, let’s get into it. How would I spend […]

Wassup world. I am Keyshaun Jamel Collins and what can I say about myself. First thing is that I never thought that I would be sharing my life, thoughts, experiences, ideas, and dreams aka my business with the world. I’m simply an introverted guy who views the world differently but prefers to keep to myself. I graduated from college nine months ago with my Bachelors of Science degree in psychology. That’s a big accomplishment for me. Yet, that’s not about me. I am a Chicago native born and raised to a black dad and mom who are still married till this day. That don’t describe me. I got a Puerto Rican and Mexican fiancée; my guy friends I had to break free from them because they were jealous. Couldn’t understand how I had the tools to get that one girl, while they stepped up to the plate swung and missed. That’s not about me. Went outside day after day practicing on what started as a dream in hopes of one day becoming a reality. I did not have the mental strength to let this curricular activity go, so I could realize that this was meant to be metaphor to teach me life and prepare me for my true gift. Now that’s me. I am a firm believer in to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). My goal is to give back, it is very easy to receive so much in life, but the real reward is to give back that knowledge so you can help the next fellow man under you struggling in whatever his/her situation may be. Through this website I have an opportunity to inspire, encourage and motivate. Paint a picture with my words while telling a story about my struggles, hard aches and pains; also the down falls and faults that I bare witness to everyday while I interact with numerous people everyday. How am I able to achieve this, simple I know myself. I know my self worth as a man because I envision it, claim it, speak it and walk in my authority confidently because I understand it. Like my dad and mom always say “If you don’t stand for something than you’ll fall for anything. Now that’s me.

  2. Being more senior in my years now, I probably feel more at ease with my station in life. If today was my final day, I would want to spend it with family who live far away.

  3. I spent my day exactly as I would have spent it if this were my last day. I went up to my sanctuary for Bible study and devotionals, prayer & quiet time ( Mt husband joined me). Then after a lovely breakfast together, I showered, dressed, and we went to teach our Sunday Schoolers and attended church. Our church school kids and their parents came to our house for a lunch party. Then after they left, we cleaned up together – and then I posted the sermon notes on my blog before relaxing a little. This evening we went out for a lovely dinner. If I died tonight, I would die s happy woman and see you one day in eternity 🙏🏽🤪❤️👍🏽
