I leaped out of bed this morning.
Being alive is a beautiful thing.
I think about life and death a ton now.
My biggest fear by far is the fear of dying.
Not of the actual pain I would experience, but of the conscious thought of me recognizing my nonexistence.
Then again, my contemplation of nonexistence is me existing contemplating nonexistence.
Nonexistence could not contemplate nonexistence.
I am a Christian.
There is various scriptures defining Heaven.
That being said, there has been no one who comes back we know to tell us what it is like.
I look back on certain things in life that happened 20 years ago and I’m like: “Man that just happened yesterday.”
That’s when I recognize how short life is.
I really like life.
I really like this incarnation of me.
Exavier Pope is an awesome dude.
I kinda want him around forever.
So when I leap out of bed, it’s me embracing this life I do have right here, right now.
Because of that, it is always an exciting time to be alive.
