We only die once

And then that’s it. We are removed from this earth; from life, from living, from breathing, thinking, sensing, moving, feeling. We are removed from experience and conscious thought. The drive to move forward will be gone, for with death comes eternal and unalterable stillness. The question is what to do with our lives while we still have the time to make something of them. Every day is a chance to rewrite our narrative; to live in our world in a new way. It is easy to forget to ever properly pause; to look inwards and question what we are doing. Do we find life meaningful? Does it fulfil us? Are we doing what we want to do? And if not, why not? Why do we wait? What is there to wait for except more lost time? Hurry up and live. There’s no better moment than now. Tomorrow is uncertain. The future is never guaranteed. We only die once. And then that’s it. So begin – and begin at once – to live.
