Listen to this post
In the past year, several of my peers at school have passed away suddenly in the most unlikely of car accidents, seemingly every month. It makes me realize I could be next.
We always think it’ll never happen to us, until it does. None of us, including the kids that passed away, leave the house thinking, “Hmm, I think I’ll get into an accident today.”
Everything can be over in the blink of an eye. If that’s the case, let’s at least make it a good day to die; let’s give everything our all, and let’s take those risks because our future selves won’t be glad we played it safe. Our future selves will be glad that we truly lived.
At the end of life, will you have lived fully, loved openly, and truly mattered?
When the answer to all three questions is a resounding yes, only then is it a good day to die. If not, then what can we do to flip the script?
