25,915 days on this planet — that is it…


What is this 25,915 days I hear you ask?

Well, I went onto google and typed in “what is the average expectancy of a human in the UK”. As expected, within 0.63 seconds I found out that in Japan it is 83.1yrs, in the UK it is 81.5yrs and in the USA, one can expect to live for 78.74yrs. Over the period from 2010 to 2013, the average life expectancy for a human on this planet was 71yrs (68.5 for males and 73.5 for females). So to be very clear,  the sum was:

71 x 365 = 25,915

So there you go, you could have 25,915 days on this planet, maybe more maybe less, but my question to you is:

What are you going to do with yours?

A few years ago a member of our close family died after a long and often exhausting fight with breast cancer, but she never gave up and was appearingly permanently positive. She died a young lady and left behind an amazing family who are doing well to this day, but during the remembrance service we recollected just some of the incredible memories of her life, some one said to me:

“It is not about the days of your life; but the life of your days”

Now I know that has been said before but it was so pertinent on that day that it has never left me.
