Not Ready To Think About Death.

Filed under: Main — Ryan Jones @ 10:11 am

Somebody I was friends with in elementary school just passed away recently. I never spoke to him after elementary school, even though we graduated together.

Anyway, it was a wake up call to me. I’m only 27, I’m way too young to be thinking about death – yet I am.

That’s some scary stuff that most people my age just don’t want to deal with right now, but we probably should. Hell, my dad is around 60 and if he’s got any plans, I sure don’t know about them.

Thinking about death just isn’t fun, so I can see why many of us just don’t think about it.

What about you? Have you made any plans for your death?

Update: Apparently Steve was the 3rd member of my graduating class to pass on. We lost one to a motorcycle accident, one to cancer, and one to drugs. It’s sad – we’re too young to die.

  1. I think it is more healthy to think about death than it is to push it aside and ignore its existence. The fact that we know we’ll die is what makes us human; no matter your belief set, you know that your time on Earth is limited and hopefully you make it your goal to spend it as wisely as possible.

    For some this means working and working to make lots of money at the cost of other personal and interpersonal goals. For others it is doing what they love regardless of what others think and say and how much money they’ve made at the end of the year.

    We all spend our time on this chunk of rock a little differently than the next person. It’s how you spend it that counts, not how and when you log off.
