There is a benefit in accepting your mortality – someday you will die. Recognizing your mortality can help you take stock of your life and open your eyes to the opportunities in front of you. Sensing your mortality can be a catalyst to create something that will outlast you, touch lives that will outlive you, and experience the places and things you’d always filed away in your mind’s “someday” drawer. Now is the only time there is. When you recognize that life is finite, you can finally get life right. To live like you mean it.
Or, you can let accepting your mortality cripple you. You can let your fear of death shrink your life.
If you want to be a seize-the-day person and use the time you have left well, try these strategies for accepting your mortality so you can live your fullest life.
