You Only Know How To Live When….

Recently I had a conversation with a fellow ward buddy, and we were talking about the books we read.

And he shared something that he had read before that to me is superb-ly insightful for a one liner…

And that is:

you only know how to live when you think about dying…

I paused in thoughts for awhile…what an irony…a paradox…

And then it clicked…it makes perfect sense…

We live day to day like there is no tomorrow, or perhaps we do not see that with each day that past, we are one step closer to 6 foot under.

And questions started to pop out of my head…

“Are you living the life that you want?…”

“Are you subjecting yourself to what people are saying?…”

“Are you too afraid to step out of your comfort zone?…”

“Do you fear living an honest, authentic life?…”

“Are you happy?…”

And the list goes on and on….it set me thinking

How do you want your life movie to look like?

And I hope it got you thinking and reflecting too, because one day, sooner or later we will be on our death beds…

you only know how to live when you think about dying…

Speak Your Mind
