Regardless of your personal beliefs on what happens after we die, I think most people agree that life is what you make it and that, as long as you accomplish whatever goals you set for yourself during this flash of lightening, it was successful.

Summer Year 2 – Month 2

 

Summer Year – Month 2

 

Life is a very important gift that is, far too often, taken for granted.  It is instrumental to observe both the preciousness and abundance of life all around us, and to understand those fully, it is important to consider both sides of the coin.  Life would lose its importance and inherent drive without the ever-looming concept of an inevitable end.  This is shown, I believe, to great ends, in various media outlets with debatable results.

 

Personally, I tend to lean towards the myriad vampire tales out in the world of how perspectives change with the gift, or curse, of immortality.  Those characters that have chosen an immortal life almost always regret their decision after the average length of a human life, but somewhere around the second or third set of years, come to some kind of acceptance with their situation.  I honestly don’t know how I would feel if I was in their place…

 

I firmly believe that it is important to respect how this whole topic came to mind.  I was able to watch a movie called Wandering Darkly which was a very interesting and relevant take on death as a whole, and very well made with incredible cinematography.  It was one of those movies that seems to be made solely to foster philosophical thoughts, which we need more of.

 

Regardless of your personal beliefs on what happens after we die, I think most people agree that life is what you make it and that, as long as you accomplish whatever goals you set for yourself during this flash of lightening, it was successful.  This could range from simple things to long term goals, but it will give you a reason to live and I think that everyone can find something to work towards, even if it is one step and day at a time.  No one can control the future.
