I’m not sure we are capable of _truly_ living like we are dying, unless we really are dying. But I think it’s something we should all at least think about now and then. Time is precious, people are precious.

I had the opportunity _very_ recently to respond with a bit of advice to someone near and dear to me when they came to me, not knowing what to do about a very dire situation. I reminded them what we have read and heard that older people say when asked about how they’d lived their lives. Many of them remind us to do our best to live life without any regrets. And even more of them point out what is really important in life: people!
