You're so close and yet not even close at all.>>7378416>You find your joy in the small things.
That's also close but still off by a large margin. The only measure of success in your life that matters is, How You you Are. If something is stopping You from being You, You aren't and might as well have never been. If you were Created, and You are not Being You, You are not respecting the Creator and your life is a failure. The only way to win is to be the Best You.
Dying is a part of life and not one that should be looked at with Contempt, Fear, Anger, Disgust or Repulsion. Death is the end of your life, and whether you start anew or continue on in some other form, this one ends.
