In order to live life fully, I challenge you to work backwards. Accept the inevitable. Confront death and you will be liberated to be the person you want to be--the person you were meant to be. If we appreciate that we will die, that life is limited, that there is no permanence, no certainty of what lies beyond, we should value every day and create our purpose.
Only one thing is certain about life: it'll end. So stop waxing philosophical, stop crying in the corner with grief and regret, and get out there and make the most of every moment. Be the best person you can be every millisecond of the day. Do everything that you've ever wanted to do. Be everything you've ever wanted to be. Live without regret.
Time is ticking.
"And indeed there will be time To wonder, "Do I dare?" and, "Do I dare?" Time to turn back and descend the stair, With a bald spot in the middle of my hair— [They will say: "How his hair is growing thin!"] My morning coat, my collar mounting firmly to the chin, My necktie rich and modest, but asserted by a simple pin— [They will say: "But how his arms and legs are thin!"] Do I dare Disturb the universe? In a minute there is time For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse."
Eliot says, "Don't be a Prufrock."
Forgive. Love. Create. Dream. Do.
