I find this "bravery demotivator" interesting.

It means one should live truly, go big, live your dreams, follow your heart. If you do this, you won't die of stupidity. Many people have regrets on their deathbed of not following their dreams.

Most people don't think of their deaths, and consider it morbid if you do. But considering death makes life more precious. Each day is not the first day of the rest of your life, it is one less day left. Live it the best way you can.

As a side query: Is it possible or good to choose the time and manner of your own death? Death is rarely dignified, but is it better to die with dignity? Whose life is it?

For many, the baggage of others, of family, make death a struggle. At some point its better to let go.

    Unless one is afflicted with some serious illness, it is imperative that one lives out ones allotted span of life. According to both Hinduism and Buddhism, Suicide is a definite ‘no-no’.

    “I don’t regret anything I did. I only regret what I didn’t do. The one thing I’d do different is take better care of my teeth.” -a radio interview with a guy that was over 100

    Mrs. Callaway of Callaway Gardens was a strong-willed lady. When she got old and lost control of her bladder, she just cut out the food. (After the first 3 days of fasting, you become very at peace and don’t really crave food.) She died on her own terms.
