Death is certain. It will happen to me, to you, to everyone you love and everyone you hate, to your dentist, your neighbour, the people you ride the bus with and the woman you buy your coffee from every morning. Death, i repeat, is certain.
So if you aren’t making those you love in your life a priority, if you have yet another excuse as to why you don’t spend time with loves, lovers, friends and interesting, provocative people, then you’re a fool.
After my own close call in November, 2009, i’ve been mostly just grateful to still be alive and confused, often even suffering from a form of grief over how close i came. how come i’m here and others aren’t. how come you are?
Please don’t waste your time in petty squabbles, working late hours on foolish jobs, obsessing over needless details, even doing laundry, if you can be with those you love. Because tomorrow we’ll be gone.
