Things change so fast, I know you know this. Partway through my run, I started thinking about ... things. I recently watched this fantastic TED talk with Steph Davis. She's this dare-devil, base-jumper, and she recently lost her husband during a jump. In her talk, she made some good points about risk. Avoiding risk, taking risks—what's better?
You know, it's funny. You can live your entire life—playing it safe—and guess what? You're going to be just as surprised as the rest of us when everything you love is taken away from you.
Because, guess what? Everything you've ever loved will, one day, be taken away from you.
So, when the cold front blows in, and you are given the unique opportunity to see it coming–you better fucking run. Knowing that time is running out, that you only have a short amount left, can be a gift.
And, guess what. You. Yes, you.
You only have a short time left.
