“It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.” ~Marcus Aurelius
Death is fascinating, frightening, exciting, hideous, and inevitable. It is also unpredictable. Yesterday, I learned about the death of a man I care about deeply. The irony is that he had escaped death many, many times. He had severe liver disease, and it nearly took him down many times. He received a liver transplant, then was diagnosed with liver cancer. Despite the fact that death was constantly hanging over his head, he plunged in to life.
He did not die as a result of liver cancer. A heart attack claimed him. He died while riding his motorcycle, doing what he loved.
Don’t spend time dying before your time. Do what you love. Now.
