Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that no one really wants to die.
We all have bad days and bad thoughts, but no one really wants to end this roller coaster ride of amazement and wonder we call life.
A life that every other unlucky sperm wishes he got a chance at.
And yet in the same breathe we yearn to know what's next. As Peter Pan said
"To die will be an awfully big adventure"
We need to live our lives as if each day was our last. But also accept that that day will come. For everyone.
There are three unavoidable things in life.
Birth, death and taxes.
But in between those three things is life itself, and the amazing power it has over each of us. The power to live. The power to love. The power to be.
We all take each day for granted due to us all living in our little bubbles. And don't get me wrong, the bubble is great. But the bubble has to pop and we have to let it go.
Let it go and see the world. Let it go and meet new people. Let it go and do new things.
Now I'm not saying go out and sky dive to feel alive. But maybe fly a kite to feel free.
There's nothing more amazing than being surrounded by something you cannot see, but can feel. Thats not from another person, but from the earth itself. The freedom of the wind that we so often ignore and label "a nuisance' to due it reeking havoc on our hair. But it truly is amazing. Watch how it shapes the clouds, shapes our days, shapes our gardens when it spreads seeds to far and beyond places. But in the same way we cannot watch anything. But we know it's there.
