By knowing that death is imminent for all, we can learn to view death as a reminder of life. While death is scary and unknown, it is not yet here for us, and this means we still have today. By keeping this in mind, we have supreme power and control over our lives, our actions, and the direction we wish to go in. We have gratitude for our existence and the existence of those close to us. Every day that we wake is another opportunity to take action on our lives.
The time we have in this world is finite and it is our most valuable resource. With each passing day, we inch closer to death. But that does not mean our lives are meaningless. On the contrary, one could view this with excitement and understand that because life is not infinite, because there is an expiration date, it provides meaning to our existence and our actions. And this means that we can take action to do things that create purpose for our lives. It is through our actions and how we live our lives that we provide value not only to our time on this earth but also to the world.
"Think not disdainfully of death, but look on it with favor; for even death is one of the things that Nature wills."
We must learn to accept the fact that we live and die. We do not know when it will come. We do not know how. But a guarantee is that it will one day come for us all. It’s scary and depressing at times. But by accepting our fate, we can embrace it and lean harder into the present moment. Instead of worrying about what’s on social media, we can embrace our ability to read, grow, and create the lives we want. We can cherish the times we have with friends and family. As it is, we are all on borrowed time.
