For some of us growing older has us thinking about our life here on earth will be over soon. I personally believe in a higher power, I am a Christian, and I hang on to the hope of a life hereafter. But even so, you can’t help but wonder what happens to you when you die.
There has been a lot of TV shows now showing mediums, ghost chasers, and people trying to delve into the spirit world, all in an attempt to prove if there is something on the other side. It’s because as humans we just can’t face our own mortality. Some people spend their whole lives worrying about dying. I heard about something called “death cafes” where people meet to discuss death! How morbid can you get?
Anyway, we all think about it, but I think we need to be thankful for being able to live this long. We have beautiful memories to look back on, raising our kids and being able to enjoy our grandkids, and see how the world has changed after all these years. Some people never got that opportunity. So I guess we need to not dwell on what’s coming, but rather appreciate what has been. We have been given a great gift, the gift of life. So enjoy the time that’s left, and don’t live it obsessing about dying. That could make it come sooner!!
