    Life gets so much better when you remind yourself of your own mortality. Forget reminding yourself of the death that is to come, EMBRACE IT.

    I've already determined that I will only live for another 22 years (48 was the age my uncle died at). I will end my life after that. I plan on doing so much between now and then. Upon completing law school shortly here, I plan to article for a short time and pass the bar (of course).....but beyond that? I am already thinking about the various careers I can pursue- from Accounting, Finance, Sales/Marketing, Medicine, Software Engineering, etc. In addition to that, just travel and meet as many new faces as humanly possible. Live life to the fullest and then dip out.

    No family, no strings attached, no commitments or obligations tethering you to anywhere.

    Yet you might die before the age of 30.

    Of course we should be afraid of death!
    Unless ... you are not enjoying life to the point of constant misery.
    It is NATURAL to:
    1) Survive one's existence, and
    2) Propagate one's species.

    Our CNS pleasure/pain centers help navigate our way ...

    I believe most people (world wide) did die before age 30 ... until about 300 years ago.
