A magic dwells in each beginning,
protecting us, telling us how to live.
High purposed we shall traverse realm on realm,
cleaving to none as to a home, […]
only he who is ready to journey forth
can throw old habits off.
This is an excerpt from a great poem called ‘steps’ which I can only recommend to read in its whole beauty.
See, the problem with doing things to prolong your life is that all the extra years come at the end, when you’re old.
Live your live to the fullest! Enjoy the perks of life now and do not constantly worry about the future. Living long is not worth anything as long as you merely exist. Living is only worth anything as long as you truly live.
Don’t waste your time preparing for growing old securely. Live!
