One of the horrible yet good things about getting older is that you realize that your time left on this planet is limited; we’re all going to die at some point.
It’s a excellent personal motivator, but there is a certain amount of regret as well.
“Why did it take 20+ years for me to figure this out? I wasted so much time. Crap, I’m wasting more just sitting here thinking about this. What the heck?”
Life, it is teh funny.
