Life has a way of throwing the unexpected at us - we can never predict what is going to happen, sometimes I think I know how my day is going to be before it starts, but people and life in general is full of suprises, some good, some not so good. Maybe being prepared for life is learning not to have expectations and just to sort of go with whatever is thrown our way - no one can read the future. Maybe it is realising that we are not in control - of anything really, even though we may think that we are!! And maybe to accept everything with grace - including sickness and eventually death. Maybe life and death are the same thing, to be approached with submission to the unexpected and openess to the journey.
And by the way Rainey Days I loved reading what you have to say, to be 14 and so wise and understanding about life, thats amazing to have reached that space - I'm 46 and your post has inspired me for the day - as you say its not too late to do it right.
