Life's Paradox

I started dying the day I was born. This is a fact. But I also started living with that first breath. That’s the paradox of human existence. We are living and dying at the same time.

Makes me wonder what the point of life is then. If I’m dying why even try to live? Wouldn’t it be easier to just let the days pass by without caring? Without trying? Without loving?


While I’m breathing I choose to live life to the fullest. Why? Because I’m dying. That’s how the paradox works to propel me towards an extraordinary human existence.

The lesson in all of this? Love life. Cherish it. Thank God for it. And go help others do the same.

I think Steve Jobs shared a similar perspective.
