This pandemic has made many face the possibility of death. It’s unsettling watching the count grow, hearing the stories of bodies piling up, and thinking who’s next. Will it be me? someone I know? A couple of friends posted on facebook about their preparations. It brings reality to the forefront.Having had a wake-up call of my own about 15 years ago, I remember processing the incident. My first thoughts were about regrets and second were about preparations. It was the trigger that forced action.
Time is a limited and precious commodity. Tomorrow is not guaranteed.
I recently listened to an interview by Mike Posner on Wild Ideas Worth Living. His words about living life without regrets prompted this post, including the title which is from one of his songs.
- Do it now.
- Death is inevitable.
- Whatever reason you have for not doing it is probably an excuse. I want to do this but . . .
- Now is the time.
Is COVID-19 your wake-up call?
Will you live before you die?
