20) Reaction upon loss
This is brief, humor me. Should one experience great pain, typically the response to counter it is to live in the past. Before the pain. Before the hurt or tragedy. You mentally counter. I was better here. I felt safer then. It was good back there. This is an incorrect response. Then upon realization and to recover and counteract, one chooses to live in the future. I will do this. I will experience this. I will live this way. I will be this person. But that is again an incorrect response. Truly life is unpredictable and without measure therefore the true answer is to value and live within the moment. I will do this now. Be this person at this very moment. I am going here. That is the only way to exist with such unpredictability and succeed. By succeed I mean contribute and by contribute I refer to positively.
