Are you ready to die?

Let's get morbid.

Last night I started binge watching Ozark. If you're unfamiliar — it's about a laundering money for the Mexican cartel.

In one of the episodes, there's a story about an old French writer who mostly kept to himself (kinda like me). When he was on the verge of death, he decided to die around his friends and family. So, that's exactly what he did. He invited everyone to his home and planned to croak while telling them his best stories.

But then, when morning came after a full night of storytelling, he didn't die. He wanted to — and he was ready for it — but his heart kept ticking. Everyone left and he was alone again.

Later that day, he died.

Here's the takeaway:

If yesterday was your last, then today would be a blessing. Let's say you survived a near-death experience last night. How would you live today? Would you have been ready for death?

Lots of deep questions to ponder here. Far too deep for most people to think about, especially for unhappy people caught in the 9-5 vicious cycle.

As for me?

If I go, I'm gone. In the BIG picture, people die as often as ice melts. It's just something that happens. We'll all die one day, but life itself goes on.

In the meantime, I'm going to keep doing what I love — writing, reading, and making money.

It's a simple life with a ton of freedom.

And, those who *really* pursue it, possible for anyone to live.
