Days Alive


A while back, I implemented a "days alive" calculator into the web site (see the Things To Do menu up above) because I think it's an interesting perspective on our lives to think of how much happens in each day, and then to consider how many days we truly have. The number seems both huge and small.

If you type "How many days have I been alive" into Google, this web site is the number #1 entry for that. And a lot of people use my calculator. So about two weeks ago, I started storing the birthdates of those who use the calculator. In two weeks, over 200 people have entered their birthdays into it, with the average age of the people entering their birthdate (or the birthdate of someone they know and love) being 33. The dates are in a range from 11/3/1903 to 8/9/2006.

How cool is that?

I hope people realize how truly important each day is. Not to be taken for granted at all... nor the people in it.

I encourage you to be sure to take today to tell the people in your life how amazing and wonderful they are, and how much richer your life is for them being in it. We all make ripples in the lives of others. Go make lots of waves today.
