← How thinking about death can lead to a good life

QuestioningKat's Avatar Jump to comment 9 by QuestioningKat

My father is going on 93 while my mother died in her early 70s. My father's family was living well into their 80s a couple hundred years ago. Clearly he has good genetics. My mother on the other hand....

I'm starting to think I have my mother's luck in health. Since my parents had me in my forties, I was able to see when health issues started to occur. I'm starting to experience some of my mother's problems a little early. This is a great concern and nearing 50 I'm wondering how much time I have left and what I really want to accomplish in this life.
