Have you lived life?

“Everyone knows they’re going to die,” he said again, “but nobody believes it. If we did, we would do things differently.”

How true. “I’m 20, I’m 30, I’m 40, I’m still young. I still have a long way ahead of me.” We think we have all the time in the world. I can tell you now that that’s not always the case. We don’t know. We don’t know what will happen tomorrow. Hell, we don’t even know what will happen within the next hour. Do you know what happens when time runs out and you finally realize that time is very volatile and unpredictable?

To know you’re going to die, and to be prepared for it at any time. That’s better. That way you can actually be more involved in your life while you’re living.
