“Recognizing the impermanence of everything and everyone is one way to wake ourselves out of habit and really focus on the beauty in our life.” – Attitudes of Gratitude in Love
I’ve noticed something about the topic of death – most people don’t want to talk about it. Although it’s one of the few definitive facts of life that can be counted upon with 100% certainty, it seems to be a fairly taboo subject for most. I suspect that’s because people are generally fearful about death – it spells the end of something most of us treasure, life. I’ve always had a slightly difference perception of death. My ability to freely talk about it comes from the idea that when I recognize that my life, and the lives of those I love, will end, life itself becomes more precious. The thought that death is inevitable makes me immensely grateful for life. This awareness is another reason why ILML!
