I know exactly how short life is, thank you. After 25 years as a Paramedic and dealing with peoples deaths almost on a daily basis, and also losing my 3 Brothers and Father in the space of 3 days due to an accident, I am acutely aware of the briefness of our lives, and how precious it is.
sorry to hear that...
it gets briefer and briefer the older you get; when you are a child even a day can seem interminable, a summer endless, your whole life... absolutely inconceivably long.
i have a guess that life is actually endless (from the inside not the outside duh) and my saying to illustrate this is as follows
"you are born, grow old, and die... but first, they say your whole life passes before your eyes, and as it does, you are born, grow old, and die... but first, they say your whole life passes before your eyes"
I know this every day. It's the people around me that seem to think life goes on forever. :)
I know tht life is brief. So i don't waste even a minute in such thoughts.
Why would I want to waste what precious time I have contemplating how little precious time I have?
I don't take a single second for granted.
Yes....life is short. I keep my ducks in a row, especially relationships.
Yes I will! And the moment it took was really brief!
