The book also talked about contemplating death. We all know the expression 'live each day like it is your last', but I've never stopped to think about what this would actually be like. What if God told me that I had one week to settle my affairs before dying? I would instinctively beg for more time. But what about the lifetime I've already been given FFS? Why am I not spending that time being the best person I can be for my loved ones. Why am I not appreciating life's beauty? Why am I not letting go of all my resentment and complaints?
Staring death in the face is a good way to live because it keeps you grounded. We will all die, we just don't know when. So if you live life fully (like today was your last day), then you won't have any last wishes. Great insight!
