I don’t mind when the day comes for me to die. I’m not afraid … I look forward. Every mistake I make in this life will be made up for at a later time … as long as I truly try to do better while living in this life.
I am married to my soulmate, best friend … the most perfect man for me. We both look forward to dying … because one day all the years we never had together when younger … we will have them at a later time … after we die. We always have wished we’d met at an earlier time in life.
This is how I wish Life … Death … really worked. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to know during your life today … that you’d have a second chance to know pure happiness … how to avoid mistakes, things in our second life.
I’m not really looking forward to dying because when I die I know I won’t have a second chance to live again … to make all wrong in this life … right in a second life. I won’t get to do things over again … change all the things to good in my life. Skip and I have talked numerous times of how we wish we could do Life over again … how we would make things be instead of like they have been.
What is that saying about ‘hindsight is twenty-twenty’? I wish I could see forward as good as … looking back.
I realize our mistakes from yesterday make us who we are today. It’s a shame not to be able to live a life of doing everything right to know, see how it feels when all is good. I would like a second chance.
Note by this Author:
I wish so much we all had that second life to look forward to … I wish we could know how it feels to go through life knowing where we made wrong decisions, mistakes in our lives … know how wonderful it felt to go on … knowing how good it feels to not have made them. I wish …
