It was a song I listened to when I was in high school.

Last Chance was written by a seminarian. And this song inspired me to enter a Catholic seminary and study for priesthood. The song taught me that I will not live forever and that this could be my last day, my last chance to show my love — to God and to people around me.

What if this is my last day? What if this is my last chance?

I do not remember the lyrics anymore. I do not remember who wrote it. But I will never forget its message. Last Chance serve as a constant reminder that I in everyday, I must give my love and whatever I can do best — because this day could be my last chance.

Last Chance…it is always there to remind me to live this day as if this is my last.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Always Something There to Remind Me.”
