"Death is Winning. Do Something"

The title is a quote from Paul Carter who owns the Blog titled "Lift-Run-Bang."  I recently saw a facebook buddy quote the title and mention his wife had signed this on a card to someone. Since I browsed through that post on my newsfeed I have had the quote stuck in the back of my head, waiting for a time to use it for something.  This has some deep meaning to it and with the fact that death wins 100% of the time, we do not have to sit idle and let it. Where is the fight?

Nothing in this world is more predictable or apparent then the fact that "Death is Winning" and it will always win.  Everybody dies.  There is absolutely nothing you can do about the fact that one day your body will shut down and the end of days come for each of us.  Death is undefeated and unbeatable...

But.. we can fight it.  That's the "do something".

I can see in many places the fact and fear of defeat has crippled us and led us to believe a battle is useless.  Do we care enough to fight the only fight our lives should engage in?  We fight cancer with the will to win and throw every single cell in our body to try and destroy it.  Do we do this before we know we have cancer?  We wake up and go about the rat race every week day trying to get ahead to enjoy life but are we actually just losing the battle?

A major portion of the societies across the world are becoming more and more sedentary.  Diseases that should not exist are rising faster each day with the top of the charts not even in sight.  Why are we allowing ourselves to fall victims here?  Why are we not standing up and fighting the battle?  Death is winning, and we are letting it happen.

Just because it is 100% guaranteed that one day you will die does not mean you need to fall to your knees in front of the beast and raise your weak hands in defeat. What happened to your sword and your will?  Why are we not fighting back like we should be?  The power to fight Death and stand up for our lives is inside each and every one of us.  The will to fight seems to be lost.

Don't let Death win.  Do Something.

This blog post is dedicated to all the people who feel exercise is too hard and eating healthy is too expensive.  It's harsh to say this but it's the truth.  If you don't exercise because it's too hard or because you'd just rather not you are accepting the fact that Death has defeated you long before Death actually grabs you and takes you away.  You lost already, without a fight.  I know you're better than that..
