When did I realize I was going to die?

It was just another ordinary day for me; I just left elementary school and made it home in time to catch my favorite cartoons. I spent most of the afternoon doing homework and mostly watching tv. My mom called my brother and me to eat dinner. Then off to shower and get ready for bed. Just another day in the life of a 12-year-old, right?

As I dose off thinking of how great life is being a kid, it hits me. I start breathing deep, panicking, and my stomach drops. I have now realized I will die one day, and there is nothing I can do to stop it. The tears start to set in, followed by the grip of fear. Like any other young kid in a panic, I run to my mom speaking gibberish and eventually, sobbing the words out, I’m going to die! Like any other parent, my mom tells me you will not die as she embraces me in a warm hug. I knew better than that; for some reason, that was the day I knew death was inevitable.

I’m glad to report I now make my inevitable death a motivator. Feeling like you don’t wanna work on a project you’ve wanted to accomplish? Are you worried about taking the leap on a new endeavor? Remember, you will die one day and won’t have that choice. Make sure you act now before that day comes. Live with no regrets.
