13,505

So this is the number of days I have left if I live to be 65, obviously there is no guarantee. This is an interesting way to picture time....
I attended a photography seminar just recently, of all things this is what plays the most in my mind of what was talked about (I know it has nothing to do with photography, I truly did learn stuff about that too).

Time goes by so fast when you look into the past, but so slow if you look into the present.

Compare 13,505 days to 13,505 dollars. How fast can you spend $13,505 dollars?

That is how I view my days now as money because it seems so much better and it makes everything so small for the days to come. I can spend $13,505 REAL fast....

"When I stand before God at the end of my life I hope I have not one bit of talent left- I hope I can say, "I used everything you gave me."

If I live to be 100, that is 26,280 days left and I already have arrangements to be ran over by a car even though that is still not alot of money... I still am not that patient.

Great post - I love it! That freaks me out. 13,505 doesn't seems like much to me. Money, or days. If we hit 100, let's just drive our car off a cliff together like Thelma and Louise.

Wow, that's an interesting perspective. It doesn't sound like that long!
And if I'm 100 with you and Chanda, please tell me place and time to go over the cliff.

I like that. I once had a shrink tell me when my mother was ill that he really believed that Christ would come in 2014. He asked if I thought I could make it till then. It seemed like such a long way off at the time. Now I hope it is even longer. This doesn't make any sense. Anyhow. I don't want to be 100 either. Truly 68. That's my perfect age to go. Boy maybe I should blog this instead of hogging your whole comment page. xoxoxo

Love the countdown to Breaking Dawn. I'm getting stressed out thinking about it

Interesting perspective. 100 is too old to live, unless I can still take care of myself and can still do at least a few things to pass the time away, I don't want to be loosing my mind and my body and just sit and wait.
