enjoy every sandwich

"We are all dying, some sooner, some later. 
The real exception is to truly live."
~ Lee Lipsenthal

I just finished reading Enjoy Every Sandwich by Lee Lipsenthal. It is a great book about humanity, and uncertainty, and gratitude. When you take those three ingredients and mix them all together, you get a life fully lived.

Imagine that you've been told that you have six months to live.
What do you need to do?
Who do you need to talk to?
Where do you need to visit?
How will you spend your remaining time?

It can be a beautiful gift to remember that life has an expiration date. We are all dying, some sooner, some later. Life is unfolding exactly as it is meant to. Stress and suffering are optional; creations of our own minds.

 "What keeps me non-agitated about death is appreciation for the life I've already had."
