The Bright Side of a Limited Lifespan

The Bright Side of a Limited Lifespan

Humans rarely remind themselves of their mortality. Therefore, escaping from a brink of death can be a life-altering experience. The same goes for those who survived executions or recuperated from deadly diseases.

After defying death, we often begin to appreciate life more. We yearn to spark a new life in us. The vivid awareness of our limited time on earth makes us more responsible with time use.

Impending death scares us but also re-energizes us for the urgency of doing something with our lives.
