Death. Dying. Gone forever. It's hard for most of us to think about this. We all know that one day, we will no longer be here on Earth. As you get older, you realize this more and more. When you are young, you have too much living to do to think about death. The young understand death in a small scale. Not global. Even if they had a close loved one pass away, it is hard to truly understand when you are young.
No one wants to die. You have no control over death, one day we will all face it. One day you wake up and realize that you have fewer days on this Earth than you have lived. Perhaps you want to share your knowledge with others. Perhaps you just want to live in peace during your last remanding days.
Once you have died, would it not be better to celebrate your life than to mourn your death? Living a life that is worth living means that you will have plenty of stories that others will share about you. Make sure you have stories to share with the world. Once you are gone, make sure your loved ones smile and laugh at what you have done once their tears have dried up.
Enjoy your life. Do what you want to do in your life. Take chances and don't be afraid to fail. Love your family. Love your friends. Help those that need it. Care for the ones that you love. Share your life with others. And don't forget to smile and laugh as you live an amazing life. Life is a great gift we were giving. Please don't squander it.
