We’re all going to die one day and that’s terrifying.
I think about death a lot and now I’m going to talk about it with you so you can think about it a lot too. Hooray for death!
Isn’t it crazy that you could die before you finish reading this post? That means either you’re an impossibly slow reader and it takes you 40 years to get through 100 words OR it means you could die at any minute.
How does that make you feel? Does it freak you out? Are you ok with it?
One of my favorite bands of all time, The Avett Brothers, have one of my favorite lyrics about death.
"If I live the life I’m given I won’t be scared to die."
Yes yes yes. That sounds amazing. That sounds like exactly what I want. I want to live the life I’m given so when I come to the end I won’t be scared to die. I won’t have a ton of regrets.
But what does that mean? How do I make sure I “live the life I’m given?”
I think I’ve finally figured it out. The answer may surprise you. Or it might not. Who knows. I’m not good at clickbait anymore.
In these two videos from my Youtube Channel I dive into what I believe it means to live a “good life.”
