How will you die?

Death is inevitable, but the way that we welcome it or fight against it, is usually up to us. When my grandfather died last year in 2014, it ushered in a new era where I no longer had any grandparents left. This meant that that generation had left, and it would never return. The second to last grandparent that left us, who I was much closer to, passed in 2006.

What did they have in common though? They all passed in a hospital  - a sterile atmosphere. Hospitals currently, are no place to die, in my opinion. My wish is that when I pass, it doesn't happen in a hospital; maybe a forest or an accident on a trip - somewhere that I was having fun. I know what you're probably thinking: "What a depressing post for today" but I don't see it that way. 

I'm not afraid of death and neither should you. I don't believe in an afterlife or reincarnation, but I do feel extremely blessed(in a non-religious sense) that I have this moment under the sun, after all, from what we can tell, this is all we have - the fact that we have it is what makes it all so special.

This was all inspired by a Ted Talk I strongly encourage you to watch:
