OP, great post. F/S.
I wish I had something factual to add, but I do not. But I can share how I feel about this, and I will do so.
I have, during my limited time here on planet earth, been in war zones with nothing but a PDA that I used for my writing. I have dangled from my
fingers on the side of a cliff face. I have, I blush to admit, ridden the top of a car that was travelling 70 miles/hr just to say I had done it. I
have ridden bulls in the rodeo. I have, through the course of my stupidy, done as many things which were life-threatening as challenged the supposed
immortality of my youth. To that end, my outlook on life is somewhat non-standard.
We all die. It's a fact of life, and one day my luck will run out. I can worry about it, or I can live a life in a manner which (I hope) God would
approve. When it is all over, hopefully, he will adjudge me worthy. I don't know for sure, and neither does anyone else. This I can say for sure,
Life is short. We all die. And if there is something you put off for later, just because it was crazy, how do you know that YOUR world won't end
tomorrow? Or next week? Or while you're reading this?
Hug your kids. Kiss your wife. Find someone special and make them happy. Make you happy. Just in case there's a final judgement (I believe that
evidence strongly supports this) be something other than an unmitigated ass while you do it.
Fear of pain is worse than pain. Fear of death is worse than death. Be.
