So I've just come around to the idea that no matter where you are in life, you will meet your maker. I know, strange way to enter this article especially since I typically write about death or the life we search for after death. It's just that, sometimes its not completely expected and can sneak up on you when your not ready. Whether it be by someone else's hand our your own. Not many people want to discuss it, but it is as much a part of life as is your regular routine. The truth is, death is everywhere. Just as you are sitting here reading this post, you are dying.
No that's not a threat, don't worry I'm not at your doorstep.
What I mean to say is no one has the luxury of living forever. And, I'm not quite sure I know anyone that would want to. Everyone really wants to have the energy or stamina as they did in their teenage years, but not much more than that. Remember all the bad times you had growing up. The painful emotions you suffered as a result. That's not something anybody wants to go through again, so even saying "ahh, to be young again..." really doesn't mean that, does it? Just remember when the days become long or the nights cold, lonely... Life is all about change, and we're only here for a very short time. Death is upon you whether you want it to be or not. I know, happy thoughts today.
