“Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
~ Matthew 6:34
Do you ever think about how little time we have left, how everything, everyone, in our life could be gone tomorrow? I wonder if it’s healthy to think about the finitude of life with such pessimism. There is surely a way to see the beauty in such finitude, to see the beauty in the limited time we all have on this planet. It can be intimidating to look forward to the future, given the hardships and pain one has endured to reach the present, with optimism. In an instant, we could be facing someone or something that we had never imagined would come so soon.
One should not wait to put their ducks in a row. There are questions that need answers, and putting them off only delays the inevitable. The time is now to choose what to believe in and what to live for, because the convictions you live by, you will inevitably die by. One can be reassured by the fact that we are not in this fight alone: the questions that we face have been asked to every man and woman before us. This is where the power of the metaphysical, of religion, of a higher purpose, can be utilized.
“You live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”
~ Mae West
