My Last Hour

This is not a book about death. This a book about life. About each and every single one of those days that still lie ahead of us. About our dreams and wishes, which we often don’t give the chance to be fulfilled. About our love for other people, which we often don’t have the courage to voice out loud. About love for ourselves, which often doesn’t exist in our life. About the possibilities life presents us with and which we don’t take owing to fear or which don’t recognize because we’re unaware. About seemingly desirable goals which, in hindsight, make us realize that we’ve overlooked much more significant things on the way to reach them. About the twinkle in our eyes that begins to fade slowly.

We only live our life once. There is no chance of doing it better the next time around. To truly live means to risk the attempt to live by our own standards again and again. It’s never too late to begin the journey to your possibilities. This book is a companion for the many unwritten, blank pages of your life.
