If you understand that your time here is fleeting, you will think differently about how you spend it.
Relationships will matter more.
Time with your loved ones will mean more.
Doing what you enjoy instead of what you do not will feel practical, not selfish.
Taking care of yourself and the people around you will no longer seem like the right thing to do, but the only thing to do.
Building your own legacy, instead of someone else’s, will begin to make much more sense.
Being brave in the face of fear will suddenly feel less risky.
You will have more confidence and less insecurity.
You will have more compassion, more empathy, and more patience for the flaws and shortcomings of others.
You will forgive more easily and forget more quickly.
Every sunrise, sunset, song, poem, meal, smile, and tear will feel both eternal and transitory.
The sooner you realize you are not going to live forever, the sooner you will start living.
