Just imagine if your doctor suddenly told you that you have just six months to live. What would your reaction be? Would you break down and start to cry? Or spend the six months trying hard to make your family as financially and socially secure as possible? Or just relax and spend the six months you have enjoying, spending all your money on whatever you always wanted? Or suddenly become a religious person and start praying with all your heart?
Now, whatever the hell we are doing with our lives, the undeniable reality is still the same. You may have only six months to live, maybe even less, or maybe more, who gives a hoot? The only question is, why wait for a frigging doctor to pull us up and make us do whatever is that important to us.
