#2: In the past year there have been a few tragic events in families that are close to mine that I have come to the conclusion that there really isn't much I can do to avoid a random and untimely death.
But I don't need to throw caution to the wind and take chances that promote an early death All things in moderation for me. I will listen to someone if they claim something is "unhealthy" for me but I will decide to take the chance and do it, they won't decide for me.
Not that I did so before, but for myself personally I don't see how obsessing about healthy lifestyle and missing out on some of the finer things in life is going to guarantee a long voyage on this planet.
I'd like to live a long time but I am going to make sure I enjoy my life. I don't want to miss an opportunity!
