Advice from an Older Mayfly
So, what did you do today? Which was 50% of your life, since we only live for 48 hours. Had a good education and adolescence in the morning? Cool. And experienced your first heartbreak before lunch? Got it. First major loss before sunset, that’s perfectly normal. Reproduced, good for you! Any big plans for tomorrow? Seeing your kids off to college, hope they don’t return to the nest, haha. But—I was only born a half-day before you, so what do I know—try to appreciate what you have. As they say: The minutes are long, but the hours are short.
