How will my life look to me when I review it from my deathbed, should I have the chance to do so?  Will I then regret what I have done or failed to do?  What choices and decisions will I cherish most?

To think like this habitually, rather than being morbid, may be the most vital practice I can follow and the most realistic, since I cannot know when I shall die—perhaps today.

How sad, though, to find I’m at death’s door and then to think of what I might have done or been—but failed to realize.

What opportunities did I not seize?  What initiatives did I not take?  What endeavors and adventures that would have vitalized my being did I pass by?

Carpe diem.
