When you accept that you are going to die, we all do, it makes living life so much simpler.

You understand what is important and what’s not.

God, Family and Friends are the only real things that matter.

Leaving the world a better place because of the life you lived should be what we strive for.

Doing that is not nearly as a big of a task as we make it out to be.
