If you could live forever, would you? Why or why not?

I would not want to live forever if I was the only with that ability.  I would want my loved ones to be able to live forever as well.  I would like to live a very long and happy life and I try each day to make the right choices that will help me do that.  I exercise, eat right (most of the time) and go to my doctor for regular checkups.  Beyond that I don’t have much control, so I just focus on what I can do and try to be ‘in the moment’ with everything I do.  I know, sounds like mumbo jumbo but if you have ever tried to stay in the moment you would know it’s not easy.  There is so much distraction, not just externally but in my own mind.  Constantly thinking about what I should be doing next instead of just focusing on what I’m doing at the time.  I’ve tried to really focus while I’m brushing my teeth in the morning just to see if I could.  I start out really good, mentally following along as the toothbrush moves from tooth to tooth but its not long before my mind starts to wander to what I need to do today or where I need to go.  As soon as I realize what I’m doing I get focused back on my teeth.  Try it yourself next time and see how you do.

Enough philosophy for one night.  ttfn
