In the past year I've had my grandfather pass away, then a few months back my friend lost her 3 month old to sids, and yesterday another friend lost her husband leaving her a single parent of three early teenage kids.
We can be taken suddenly or know it's coming for ages, but death is still one of those things you can't really prepare for completely. It leaves the survivors with too much to do regarding the death. My parents are still taking care of the estate, my friend with the baby is still grieving and my friend with the lost husband has lost so much more than just a companion since they're still of working age.
We can try to make the most of our lives, no matter when our expiration date is.
We need to make sure our bodies are working to its best by providing the fresh food and movement it desires. We need to provide the emotional health it craves in making sure we have people we can confide in, whether it be a group of similar minded people, a small circle of good friends or a life long mate. We need to make sure we're seeing the best in life because it's too short to waste worrying what might happen and enjoy what is happening.
So enjoy the life you're given because it's the only one you have. Treat it well and remember that we're each living a life with individual struggles, so treat everyone's life the nicest way you know how.
