Just a Little Dust
"Remember you are dust and to dust you shall return" always reminds me of my mortality. Technically, that's a morbid thought, but it can also be inspiring, or at the very least comforting. To know that we only have a certain amount of time on this planet forces us to think about our priorities and accomplish what we absolutely want/need to before dying. And it's nice to know that at the end of the day--at the end of our lives--we're just going to turn back to dust; even if we don't cross off everything on our bucket lists, we'll just be dust and so will everyone else.
