It’s your last life, not your only life
The inevitability of our eventual demise is a fundamental aspect of the human condition. Ergo, our mortality is an inescapable reality that shapes our existence. Yet, we often find ourselves disconnected from this truth.
However, the tragedy lies not in the fact that we are mortal, but in our tendency to forget our mortality and live without fully embracing the fleeting nature of life.
Instead of succumbing to the illusion of immortality, we can cultivate a sense of urgency that propels us towards meaningful actions and connections. I’ll leave you with this quote from Confucius:
“Every man has two lives, and the second one starts when he realizes he has just one.”
