DailyBlog: How Short Would Live Have To Be To Live Differently

** The first three books in my six-part dystopian series have officially made their way out into the world! Check them out!
For the sake of blogging, self-exploration, and contemplation, I’ve been slowly making my way through answering questions from this list

Today’s Question: How short would your life have to be before you would start living differently today?

In all honesty I have a fairy live-for-today lifestyle in general. I am a responsible adult as in, I maintain decent credit (I don’t go crazy with my credit cards), I pay my bills on time, I have a full-time job and all of that “responsibility” stuff, but I do it in a way that makes my days as enjoyable as possible. Despite my decent salary I do live fairy paycheck-to-paycheck with little savings so that I can lead an enjoyable life which includes having a horse, going on vacations with friends, etc. If I found out I had an “expiration date” that was coming up quite soon, I’d take every vacation that I haven’t taken yet (i.e. I really want to go to Paris and Rome), and I’d take care of a few “bucket list” things like skydiving while caring far less about my credit debt because that doesn’t exactly matter when you’re dead, but I wouldn’t drastically change things other than that. I believe in finding a balance between responsibility and having fun, too many people have the “I’ll do this later” attitude about so many things but when it takes away enjoyment from your present days, it’s not worth saving for that theoretical “later.” The point is we have no idea how much time we have. My step-grandmother is 94, and my grandmother died in her 50s. Some kids don’t make it to their teenage years. We’re here while we’re here so we might as well focus on “making each day count.”
