Two months ago, on February 29th, US public health officials initially declared a Washington state man in his 50s to be the first person in the country to die of the coronavirus.
A lot can happen in 60 days.
As of yesterday, now over 61,000 deaths have occurred due to COVID-19.
From 1 to 61,000. And it continues.
Each day contains 24 hours. 8 of those dedicated to sleep. The rest…we decide. How are we spending our days? If we knew we only had 60 of them left, how would we live different? Would we?
Each heartbeat, a gift. If you use an average of 80 beats per minute, your heart beats about 4,800 times per hour which calculates to 115,200 beats per day. That’s almost 7 million beats over 60 days. What’s your heart beating toward? How are you spending your beats today?
Each breath, granted from above. If you average 15 breaths a minute, that’s 21,600 in a day. Your lungs expand and contract, inhaling life giving oxygen, exhaling carbon dioxide. In 60 days, 1.3 million breaths.
Each moment. We decide.
Spent with a loved one … Spent in isolation.
Spent in nature … Spent in front of a TV.
Spent appreciating life … Spent blaming.
Spent encouraging … Spent criticizing.
Spent creating … Spent reacting.
Spent reading … Spent in boredom.
Spent in anticipation for the best that’s ahead … Spent hoping for the past to repeat.
A lot can happen in 60 days…
