Two people I've known since I was a child passed away recently. Both of these people were only a couple of years older than I am now. Their deaths have really made me examine the way I live my life and the things that are important to me. We really only get one shot to be the best version of ourselves and as my best friend put it today, it's important to remember not to treat it as a birthright, but acknowledge that it is a privilege and do the best we can before our time is up.
I hope I can live the remainder of my life with as much honesty, integrity and courage as I can muster.
