Does the mere thought of it scare you? Do you live in fear that your life, the people you love, your dreams, hopes and aspirations are all going to end one day. No matter whether you fear it or accept the fact bravely, it is the ultimate truth of life. Everyone is going to die one day. What matters is how did you spend your time here? Did you have a wonderful experience? Remember each passing day brings you closer to death. Each moment spent does not add to your life, it only takes you closer to the end. Your contract to stay here will expire one day. Do not act as if you have forever to live. Watch how you spend your days and time here. Do you spend your days in meaningful pursuits or you just waste them allowing your life to rot away. Denial of the fact that you will die one day will not help.
