To die with a smile

I recently saw an inspiring movie, Bucket List. The story is about Corprate billionare Edward Cole and working class mechanic Carter Chambers have nothing in common except for their terminal illness. While sharing a hospital room together, they decide to leave it and do all the things they have ever wanted to do before they die according to their bucket list. In the process, both of them heal each other, become unlikely friends, and ultimately find the joy of life.

I highly recommend to those who are sick and are suffering from terminal illness. In the course of my selling life insurance, I had encountered countless clients who were sick. Especially those who were disgnosed with critical illness, seldom lived to be alive. The minute they were told by the doctors that they were suffering from cancers, all hope to live weaken. When they were healthy, they were cheerful and happy. Not when they knew about their disgnosis, they turned sorrowful and painful. Instead of prolonging their lives, they shorten it. When you are not happy but sorrowful in health, death comes earlier than expected. Whenever I came across all those clients who were suffering from critical illness, I spend sometimes with them to cheer them up. I made them laugh and offered them hope. Most important to be joyful and cheerful. If it ever happened to me, I promise myself I will be joyful till death and will die with a smile. After all we die only once in our life time.

To all who read this title, I strongly recommend you to see this inspiring movie. Perhaps you could save another person lives.

I believe; "The best medicine for the heart is to laugh."
