by a thread

Thinking that we are all basically hanging by a thread brings me comfort. The thought that this should make us want to live every day as if it were our last is the primary benefit.

I am not spending any more of my life worrying about things but will deal with them as they come, calmly and with a level head.

Our life is not always in our hands but while we are here let's make the best of it we can.

We leave the rest to God.

  1. I tend to agree. I'm not religious, myself, but I get that we're not really in control of our lives, and that none of us is promised a tomorrow. I'm okay with that. As the late Christopher Hitchens said while still speaking at events during his terminal illness, "How am I? Well, I'm dying. But that's okay. So are you."

    All we really have is now. We can appreciate it in the present, or we can miss it. A truth at once as banal as to be taught by Ferris Bueller and as profound as to be taught by the Dalai Lama.

    Enjoy life now as much as possible, and leave the rest to . . . . well, I'll say . . . . . whatever forces control the cosmos. :)
