Hey, it’s Alex-
I recently finished reading “Tuesdays with Morrie,” and it left a profound impact on me. The book moved me to tears on several occasions, and I found myself particularly emotional as I reached the end.
The concept of mortality is something we often push aside, avoiding discussions about it until it’s unavoidably in front of us. Even then, we tend to suppress these experiences because confronting our own mortality can be overwhelmingly daunting.
Within the book, there are many quotes that resonated with me, but the central message is beautifully encapsulated in Morrie’s words.
“The truth is… once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.”
It’s all too easy to clutter our lives with things that hold little significance, filling our hours and days with activities that merely occupy space. It’s essential to contemplate our mortality and realize how fortunate we are to be alive.
Upon finishing the book, I’ve been filled with an overwhelming sense of gratitude today. For those who haven’t read it yet, I wholeheartedly recommend giving it a read.
