63. One day at a time.
The important thing is to get through TODAY. No one knows what tomorrow will bring, so it doesn't matter right now - it's not as important as today, whatever it is.

One of my favorite quotes about death comes from Neil Gaiman's Sandman comic series, where Death is embodied as a beautiful Goth girl who does the best she can to keep a positive attitude and is probably the sanest being in the story, 'cause she's seen it all.

She had to collect a young man who was very angry about being cut short, and she told him gently but firmly, "You get what everyone gets. A lifetime. No more and no less."

That's what we all get, exactly. It's on us to make it count for as much as we can.
