Politics, religion, race and gender all set aside, the one thing all living beings share in life is death.
It’s okay to talk about dying, in fact, it’s a good thing. Talking about death doesn’t bring it any closer, it just helps us to be more prepared and to be grateful for the time we have.
Let’s talk about it.
I think a lot about the fact that our time here is limited. Sometimes it makes me shrink into a corner and cry. Sometimes I look at death passively, like observing a bee pollinating a flower.
Death is a very difficult thing to come to terms with in your life. I wasn’t exposed to it very often growing up, now it feels like it’s all around me. I guess that’s the way it is when you get older, you know more people, everyone else grows older with you, and before you know it you have to buy a new funeral dress because your old one expired… just like everything else.
Give your loved ones some extra time and attention today; they’re not going to be around forever.
Now that I’ve made you all nice and sad, have a great Hump Day!
