The way I figure it, since we only get to go through this particular life once, we might as well be sure and do the right thing now.
It’s like those people who put plastic on their furniture, so it stays nice. Nice for when? What are they waiting for? Some “special occasion” that might happen in the future? In the meantime, they have ugly, tacky, sticky plastic covering everything.
They should enjoy their prized furniture now, while they can. Later is guaranteed to no one.
So be sure to let your loved ones know that you love them now. Be sure to laugh with, and enjoy your friends now. Be sure to be kind to your neighbors now. You might not get a chance for a do-over later.
