The average age of death is 77.3 in the U.S. If I make it to the average I have 16,414 days left and have lived 11,826 days.
Really puts some things into perspective when you break your life down into days. I have a lot of things I want to do yet and when I wake up tomorrow I'll have one less day to get all those things accomplished, I hope I have the stamina, health and ambition to never waste another day.
If you wake up tomorrow. Averages are, well, averages. Maybe, you will live to 110. Maybe not. I'm sure my late wife thought she would live til 40, but it didn't work out that way. If I've learned anything in the past 50+ years, you take nothing for granted and appreciate what you have while it's here.
Genetics is probably most of the battle, but taking care of yourself, exercise, eat well, regular doctor visits and plus one thing that most of us don't think much about: dental health. Take care of your teeth and you live longer.
DS, A reflective post sir. The fact that you're pondering this topic of us humans having no more than 120 years here on earth (declared by God) will serve you well in many respects, not all of which are related to the actual days you are alive before physical death happens to you.
I suggest praying to God, asking Him to help you in discerning His Will for your remaining days according to His purpose for you as you deal with those around you and the world at large. You may be surprised by His heart urgings and pathway, but it will always be for your good, so buckle down, buckle in, and man-o-man, enjoy the rest of your days as written in the Book of Life.
I pray life is going VERY well for you! Blessings, Mark
When I look at the newspaper, I realize that my time is now short, My time with the Lord will be forever. I am prepared to go now. Planning, as if I will live and continue to witness for Him here forever.
My 2nd child was killed at 16 months old. You beat him by a bunch.
I an 41 really no bucket list i can think of. Just want to be healthy and spend time with my family. Learning the bible well would be nice and being in the spot to help others. There are a few things i would not mind doing but nothing pressing or important.
