555 Days Towards Level 9000: Day 39.
Time Awake: 11:00 a.m.
A few days ago, awesome actor Bill Paxton passed away. Age 61. From complications during surgery.
My mind won’t wrap itself around that. One day you wake up, you’re moseying around, you go in to take care of of something and then – poof – you’re gone. Just like that.
That’s the fleeting nature of Life.
And this helps to demonstrate why I live Life the way I do. Some may consider my methods to be reckless, impetuous even. I wouldn’t argue that. But Life’s transitory status gnaws at me.
I know what I like. I know what I want. And I know how I want to Live, soaking all of those elements in and experiencing it all.
At the same time, if I intend to be alive, I need to take care of myself better.
For breakfast today, I had kimchee eggs. Yum. Such flavor. I love it. My stomach, however, isn’t as much of a fan.
And that’s something I do, whereby I consume irritants and tend to the fallout afterward. Apple cider vinegar works wonders. But that’s breaking branches, not striking the root.
The moral of the story seems to be to Live. But Live with care. As my Mom always says to me, “Be kind to yourself.”
