Orland Park Prayer Center

The Prayer Center of Orland Park

Every day is a constant reminder that we are getting closer to the end.
I can’t help but have thoughts such as “maybe this is my last day on Earth”

We live our lives as if we have forever, yet every day we see people die and think “That won’t happen to me”
It’s crazy because we know the circle of life. We know we are born, live, then die…. but when it comes to ourselves or someone close to us passing, it’s almost impossible to imagine.

It’s crazy to think that one day, we won’t be alive anymore.
This thought always makes me wonder… are we even alive now? Is this even life?
If we live, then die, the afterlife is infinite… so it makes me wonder, are we living like we’re dying… or are we dying to live?

It’s always late at night when I have thoughts reminding me of the terrifying truth; this life is absolutely meaningless, and every breath we take is one step closer to our last… the craziest part, we still don’t take it as seriously as we should…
