It goes on about how the first date on our headstones is the date we are born. We have no control over that.
The second date on our headstones is the date we died. And most often, we don't have much control over that either.
But, what we do have control over is how we spend the time between those dates. The dash, as it is represented on the stone.
I found this calculator on a website for an insurance company. I found it to be a fun little tool. I scored a 89.
I'm not sure how I feel about that. If it means that the remaining 43 years is going to be good and healthy, I'm alright with it. But if I'm doomed to suffer, then we may have to revisit calculating that end date.
Give it a try, see what you've got left.
So, how'd you do?
How does that make you feel?
If you are like me, you know you have some work to do before it's over. Better get busy.
Obviously, this is only one companies calculations and there are many more factors that can effect your span of life. We don't know how much time we will get. The facts are, if you live a clean, healthy life, you most likely will live a longer life. In my family, we just witnessed a scare that almost cut a clean life short with no warning at all. But only you can determine how full that life is or how you will be remembered.

Live well, my friends. Expect more.
