It's about living..... (because eventually....)

"Everyone knows they're going to die," he said again,
"but nobody believes it.
If we did, we would do things differently."


"Live lie to it's fullest"

Every day,
have a little bird on our shoulder that asks,
' Is today the day?
Am I doing all I need to do?
Am I being the person I want to be?"

excerpt from

You know, my adoptive father's death when I was a girl (16) has had that exact effect. That "scar" reminds me often of the fragility of life. Most of the time it works to motivate me positively. Occasionally, I must remind myself 'That was then, this is now!'

So, what are your plans for this day?

Jules, so right on, that is an excellent way of going through life, that's the only way we are living now. :)

That first quote is stunning. We don't really believe it, do we? I wonder how many of our choices would be entirely different.
