To the hero of your story

I will really start living when I become a published writer…
I will really start living when I get to the Olympics…
I will really start living when I have a baby…
I will really start living when I am 55 kilograms…

Does life really care?
Does death really care?
Does death really care where you are in the story you tell yourself- at the beginning, middle or end?

Your story is only yours to write until the big scriptmasters- accidents and age and sickness and viruses- decide to change the plot.

All you have in your story is only right now.
