"Your days are numbered. Use them to throw open the windows of your soul to the sun. If you do not, the sun will soon set, and you with it" – Marcus Aurelius
There are few things in life you're guaranteed to succeed at.
One of them is dying.
It’s inescapable. Never in the history of humanity has someone been unsuccessful at it. It’s a completely natural part of human existence.
Death is as certain as the shits after Taco Bell or instant regret after stepping on Lego.
Marcus Aurelius said that worrying about death is futile. You've been in existence for far less time than you haven’t been.
You didn’t think about the period of time before you were born, so why worry about what comes after? There's nothing bad about the period after death, much like there's nothing bad about the period before life.
I think people worry about death because they’re scared of life.
What about all the things I didn’t get to do? What about my family? What about this, what about that... The reality is, you’re going to be dead, there’s nothing you can do to stop it.
If you had to think about everything you’d regret not having done when you inevitably bite the dust and started to do them now, how much more fulfilled would your life be?
If you’re guaranteed to die at some point, you better start living now.
Greet Death with open arms, don’t let him drag you kicking and screaming.
