“remembering that I’ll
be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make
the big choices in life. because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure —
these things just fall away in
the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. remembering that
you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you
have something to lose. you are already naked. there is no reason
not to follow your heart.”

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
'You are now at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. Forget your past. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don't think about who you have been. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully.'
