The best thing I could learn from this life ? I learned early on. Gear up for the next one.
While young people are coming into the prime of their life, elders have passed that moment a long time ago.
The body ages and with age complications arise within the body. It does make one aware of death which is nearing, as it should be.
It is just as much a part of life as being born in this world. Those that have already passed away and are burried have an stone on their grave with the birthdate and date of death, separated by an - between the dates. That - stands for his or her entire life as a living being on earth.
What would that - represent on your stone? What did you do with your life?

I have had a few great times, but a great life? No. And that's fine, I don't ask for one. More important is; have I been nice to people? Have I helped where I could help? Have I been mostly honest, mostly honorable..... Life isn't great, and it isn't meant to be. However, you are, and you are!
