Feeling Afraid

"I remind myself, while feeling afraid, to love life anyway, to retain the certain knowledge that I will die someday and use that to open to the preciousness of what I see and feel right in front of me.  Now I might feel afraid but am determined to have that fear serve as a counterpoint to my tendency to procrastinate---if I have to apologize, tell someone 'I love you,' try to make a difference, I need to do it without delay."
