In Others’ Words: Life and Unimportant Days
It’s funny how we count our days, isn’t it?
We have busy days and do-nothing days and days we wait for all year long, like birthdays and anniversaries and Christmas. We have days we dread, like the start of school or the end of vacation. Life changing days … and life-shattering days.
But I do believe Alexander Woollcott got it right when he said there are no unimportant days in our lives. Each and every day we live, no matter how many or how few, equal the sum total of our life — the minutes and hours that made us who we are. Our choices. Our relationships. Our accomplishments. Our disappointments and defeats. The good days and the bad days put all together are important because they are ours. We can’t relive them … and we can’t un-live them, either.
Important days can be ones where we make monumental decisions. We say “I do.” Or we say, “No, not this time” — and we live with the consequences of our decision. But even on the days when we rest and think and don’t do anything life-changing — or so it seems — the day is still important because it was ours to be lived … and to be appreciated.
In Your Words: It’s Tuesday — a not unimportant day! How’s it going for you so far?
