There is an old saying, only two things in this world are inevitable, they are “death and taxes.”
A change was inevitable at one time, now it is constant.
When you are born into this world you are automatically given a death sentence. The first thing you have to do is live out your life sentence. There is no way to escape, you will have to live out all of your days until you die. It makes no difference if you are in a prison or living in freedom, the sentence is still death. How you live your life will certainly determine at what point your death sentence will be carried out. If you are living in a prison you will have fewer choices on your lifestyle. You might even live longer with less bad options being available.
Some people will always decide they want to hurry up and live their life just as fast as they can, keeping the undertakers busy! Full speed ahead, enjoying all of the fun things that can be invented in this world to the max, 24/7 if possible. The majority of the fun things will cause the body to deteriorate at a much faster pace. Those who choose to live on the wild side will no doubt finish their life sentence in a whole lot quicker fashion than some others.
It is just some people’s nature to live a quieter, more laid-back style of life, eating balanced meals and taking care of their health and their bodies and doing regular exercises. They become the exception to the rule in many cases. They surprise the people who study the longevity of humans living in this world. The laid-back lifestyle folks may well live past the hundred year mark and are still very much able to negotiate their daily lives.
We live in a world of sickness, disease, and new bacteria being discovered almost daily. Death comes painfully early to many people of all ages. It robs them of the choice of life they wanted to live. The world is not fair, if your number comes up early you receive what you got but you might beat it and make death come back for you on a future day.
In our modern day and age, taxes are still inevitable. Millions of people live on low incomes today their taxes are not nearly as big a shock on April 15.They still have to pay sales tax and property tax on property they own. Taxes on food, lodging, luxury items, gasoline, wheel tax, fuel tax, electricity and more. There are many sin-taxes that can’t be avoided, alcohol, cigarette, bed, board, and drugs, the list goes on and on. Governments continue to legalize marijuana for the purpose of raising more tax revenue. More taxes will always be needed as governments learn newer and faster ways to spend the working person’s dollars. We know for sure that is inevitable.
