Remember How Short Life is


We’re so busy with our day-to-day lives that it’s easy to forget just how short life is. That’s why Here Is Today is such a great tool for those who need to take a step back to remember that what you’re doing today very well won’t matter a year from now and almost certainly won’t matter in a century from now.

The simple website starts by showing you the date as a small yellow square, but click again and you’ll see how short the day is compared to the whole month. Click again and see the day within the span of a year. Keep clicking and you’ll eventually see the length of today in relation to the whole millennium, this epoch, this eon, the history of earth, the history of reptiles and, eventually, the history of the universe.


While you could take this as a negative reminder that nothing you do will ultimately matter in the grand scheme of things, it’s much better to realize how much freedom that gives you. Bunnies don’t live their lives worrying about how their actions will affect the universe on a grand scale, they hop and frolic through life.

That’s the way you should take the revelations from this site -use the information to remind you to live life to its fullest and enjoy yourself because when you look at how short life is, the most important thing you can do is to live a good life.
