In the past month, Tim Russert & Tony Snow have died. Although Snow had been battling cancer, it was not as unexcepted as Russert's death. Last year, Snow did an interview with Russert on Meet The Press. Both, in their 50's, were looking like the picture of health. While watching a replay of this clip last week, it was iry to know that the two of them did not realize that they only had approximately a year to live.
Again today, death looked me straight in the face. An attorney whom I'd been working on a project with died suddenly on Sunday of a massive heart attack. Each time we talked, he always mentioned that he was stressed. Over time, his slouched shoulders begin to revealed it's toll. Last week, he was here and gone today.
I grew up in a neighborhood of seniors. Here I was in the sunrise of my life and they all being over 60+ were in the sunset. I would sit on their porches and listen to stories of what they wished they "coulda, shoulda, woulda" done. I remember thinking, I do not want to live my life wishing about the possbilities.
My point is live life to the fullest because tomorrow is not promised. Make a list of the things you would do if this was your last week in life. Once that list is done, do everything on it. Do not limit yourself. Life is too short and you may not have this chance again because you could die next week.
