On Dying

I decided a few years ago that if I were to develop a terminal illness, I would not endure any sort of treatment meant to delay my death. I would simply let the illness run its course, slowly weakening my body until it was all over.

People talk about things they want to do before they die. Some people want to experience sky diving or travel the globe. Others want to enjoy a family of their own. The only thing I want to do before I die is to learn to accept myself as I am and be content with who that person is.

When I finally die, I would want my family to be with me. I would want them to sing to me and talk about all the happy things we'd done together in my lifetime.
