It's sad that it usually takes something tragic for us to remember that life is unpredictable. Control is an illusion. And despite our best efforts, right decisions, and good luck: nothing is guaranteed.
It's cliché to say that every day should be lived to the fullest. Besides, it's not very practical. But you should love every day you get to be alive. Whether you spend it at work providing for a family, hiking Mt. Everest, or just taking some time to yourself to listen to your favorite playlist, love that you get to do what you're doing.
It might not be your idea of perfection.
It might not be your idea of exciting.
But here you are.
