Remember to die.

We all die. A thought I had the other day while having a rough go at life, (“Why me? Why do I hurt? why? woe as me…” kind of day) I tried to think about how long it takes us figure out how to live. There are words written about birth, living, maturing, becoming frail, and finally death.
