Today I found out my childhood best friend died. We were very close up until about 2 yrs ago when he got married and his wife felt we were too close. Fair enough, I respected him and his decisions.

He was 27 yrs old. He was extremely overweight growing up and for most of his adult life. About 4 yrs ago he decided to make some life changes. He lost almost 200 lbs in 2 yrs. he was physically fit and active and his wife was 6 months pregnant. He had cirrhosis of the liver. Wasn't a heavy drinker by any means. The doctor thinks his obese lifestyle led to all of the fatty tissue around the liver. He had bleeding ulcers which ultimately ended his life.

With that being said, Wwyd different if you knew you were only going to have 27 yrs on this earth?

The world lost a warrior today. Rest in love, old friend.

I am 27 years old now, and a collective of happy days in my life probably wouldn't reach a year.

It's been a hard, sad, 27 years.

If I knew it ended this year?

I'd celebrate!

My step kids would be fine without me. I know they would. So, I would finally find joy! Every day leading up to the end, I'd be so thankful it was almost over! Each day, no matter how awful, I'd have that bright spot knowing its almost over.

How wonderful and freeing it would be!

I'd buy a massive life insurance policy so my family would be taken care of.

I would have been dead ten years ago if I died at 27. I wouldn't even have had any kids.
