Feel Good Friday: 30,000 Days

The average lifespan is 82 years. This equates to 30,000 days.

Have you ever given any thought to how many days you’ll be alive? Singer/song writer Allison Geddie was faced with that question when someone in her life was given a short time to live.

This tragedy of a family friend inspired her to explore the questions about life. Why are we here? Is what I’m doing with my life making a difference? Do I just live day to day, pay check to pay check? Allison decided to go out into New York City, with markers and a poster board and ask people one question.


Whether you believe in reincarnation or believe we only live once…

you’re here for a reason…

you matter


what you do in this life matters.

For me, I want to inspire others

to live their best dream


help them be healthy to realize their dreams.

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

What will you do with your 30,000 days?

About Tamara Hoerner (1258 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  1. I have been so very blessed each and every day of my 61 years. Because of this wonderful feeling to give back I carry with me everywhere, whether it be a smile, some change, extra clothing, volunteer work with people who have lost their memories, or friends and family in need of my ear, etc., I will use my 30,000 days to give blessings!!!

  3. Wow, what an eye opener! 82 years sounds so much longer than 30,000 days. What a way to Inspire people to get going on sending their gifts out into the world. We’re always waiting for the perfect time, but the truth is, every single day we ate blessed to see another day is a perfect day to Inspire others to do the same. Thanks for this lovely post!
