I’ve been thinking a lot about this idea, ever since I first heard about Darryl Kile’s death. Darryl apparently died of heart disease. He was 5 months younger than I am. You just don’t think about people 33-34-35 years old dying suddenly because of heart failure, but it does happen. For me, being right there in that age range, it’s a pretty good reminder that there are no guarantees in life. You don’t know when you’re going to die, or how, only that you will, someday. You might as well cherish each day you have and not take any of them for granted. There’s good things to be had in life, but you can’t spend all of your life waiting for them, sometimes you’ve got to take some initiative and try to get the most out of life that you can.
