Life throws us an constant reminder that we all are mortal. It reminds us that we are perishable beneath the tough exterior that we often portray. Each day is closer to death.
We ignore facts as they are and let our egos take the driving seat. We spin a narrative to our liking and feel it's the holy truth. We must embrace the the fact that we are going to die and live life to the fullest. Graveyards must be frequented to give us a sense of finality. There's no escaping it.
Time is a gift that one must accept and be grateful for. Death is just the final chapter in our lives. There's a whole story to be written before that. We hold the pen and the world is our paper. Death hangs over us at all times. Don't let it overshadow your goals and ambitions.
We are reminded of the fragilities of our very existence. Either you can lead a meaningless life as death is inevitable or make the most of your life and be content before your demise. Two options lie before you.
