Tangled Thoughts from a Restless Mind

"Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think."
 
I'm tired of being reminded of the fleeting nature of our time on Earth. 
I'm tired of being aware that this can all end so quickly. 
I'm tired of knowing how important it is to stop and smell the roses, that the frost is coming soon. 
I'm tired of happy moments carrying the pang of realization that this can be gone in the blink of an eye. 

Understanding the importance of living for today is a terribly heavy weight to carry.

"when Time and Life shook hands and said goodbye."

I'm so tired of people in my community dying.

Yes, it's exhausting. And then there's survivor guilt, too.
