I could have died when wrecked a car, rolled side over side 5x and end over end twice and ejected through the fiberglass roof in the 70s. I was in my 20s and would have missed a lot of life and this forum.

I could have died last year when my aorta dissected. And they've killed me twice to do the repairs.

I've seen a bunch, lived a helluva life, have a couple of great kids, awesome family relationships and a ton of friends. I am totally at peace now and can die at anytime.

When someone dies young, I am sad they missed out on life, when someone dies my age or older not so much.

While I'd love to see peace on earth, grandkids, flying cars and the innovations to come. I've had a wonderful time on this planet.

And hoverboards! I think you should stay around to see their general adoption, wil.
The one-wheels and electric scooters have made it apparent how concerning them being ubiquitous would be.

The flying cars it appears will be self driving ubers...

And I got no intention of going anywhere, living a year as a ticking time bomb and them now relaxing the prognosis makes one think. People always speculate as to what one would do if they were given X time to live. I've discovered, what I want to do the same thing I've always done. Spend time with people I enjoy amd meet knew people. I am still not healthy enough to do all the things...but they think maybe!

I do not believe I would change my life either should I be aware of near death. It is good to live without regret. A few years ago I made amends to people I wronged I thought I wronged.
I learned clearing my conscience was about me rather than righting any wrongdoings on my part. Most people didn't have a clue of any wrongful actions I may or may not committed.

I've also learned to question what motivates us to do the things we do. It is not healthy to harbor regret from one's past. Forgiveness is likewise essential for moving forward, sometimes very difficult to achieve.

The Blame Game never works to one's favor, Forgiveness is the only way to redemption.

Forgiveness releases the forgiver and the forgiven from bondage. Without forgiveness whatever transpired between you will remain.

Don't you want to teach the next generation of builders who could create the wooden sculptures that you/they might envision at a burning or might end up creating bonds with another culture? <(^x^)>
