Each morning, when you wake up, you don’t think about dying, do you? Well, why not? You should, because it’s coming quicker than you think.

THINK. That’s they key to this whole operation.

We turn on the news in the morning, make our coffee, and get bombarded by thoughts and ideas that make us believe we are going to live forever. Why is noone talking about death? I’ll tell you why. Because they want you to keep buying and believing in things that make everyone else money, and conform to ideas that are not yours.

If we really knew how long we truly live for, I think we may have a different perspective on life, and do the things we want to, instead of being so scared to do them. Remember, when you’re dead, you won’t have the ability to be afraid anymore.

Let’s do a little math shall we? Per day averages:

Work- 8 hours
Travel time- 1 hour (Back and forth)
Eat food- 1- ½ hours
Sleep- 7.5 hours

That’s already 18 hours out of the day! Leaving you 6 hours for “yourself.” However, things come up, family time, etc; How much time do you really give yourself to be YOU?

Take away the first 13 years of your life, since that’s not truly living and we really don’t remember any of it. Now take the average lifespan of a human in 2017 which is roughly 78 years of age if you’re a male, 81 if you’re a female. That leaves 63 years, of reasonable, rational life. Maybe. What if you get sick, or fall mentally ill?

I truly give us maybe 40-50 years of actual living, to create something for ourselves. A passion, a purpose, and to make our mark. That’s an unbelievable short amount of time, in the grand scheme of things. Isn’t it?

So, if we truly think about our death, maybe that will light a fire under our ass, yeah?

On top of that, if you don’t believe in a higher power, there is no afterlife in your thought process. Just, the end of life. The end of an organism’s life on this planet.

How is this not on the new every morning, or in the paper, or popping up on every billboard? Or, why is it not on our mirror when you wake up first thing in the morning?

Go out, enjoy your death that’s happening right now, and make the most of it, because it’s a lot shorter than you THINK it is.
