Life Is Ending One Minute at a Time

This is your life and it’s ending one minute at a time.

This movie quote from Fight Club makes me wonder how many people realise what’s happening to them with every breath they take.

Yes, they are getting older, and some are actually getting wiser, while others take every second as it comes their way. Which in some situations is the best way to do it.

But as for others, the very thought that their lives will come to an end, makes them shiver all over and then crawl into a corner and sob uncontrollably about what’s to come.

We all die. There is no way around that. No other options are available to us right now. So let’s deal with death and make the most of the time we have while we are alive and kicking.

We don’t have to do crazy things in our lives to make the most of it. Skydiving, bungee jumping, swimming with sharks, or leaping over tall buildings in a single bound. They all sound great, but aren’t necessarily required to live life to the fullest.

The simplest things around us are more than enough to make our lives worth living. Family, friends and even our pets are all there for us to share each breathing moment with.

The smile you get back from your partner as you enter the room. The joy your children bring you, day in and day out. Even though it may not seme that way, they really do bring joy and happiness.

The old saying about slowing down and smelling the roses really does have some merit.

Let’s slow down and enjoy every second we have and live our lives to the fullest. It’s the most we can do for ourselves.
