In order to figure out how much your life values, how you have managed to capitalize it, think about tomorrow could be the last day. But not the last day of your life - because then you could find any comfort: you have written something, you help someone, you will comfort a reader after fifty or sixty years after your death, or, if you worked in history area, you have changed the history of your country, you contributed to your nation rising and salvation etc. Such a death is consoling - and yet it does not validate the life you have led. But think that tomorrow could be the last day of the world. That the Earth returns to its predestined nature: the gas. See, then, what you still have in your life: the good you done, love you have shared ,comfort you gave to others.
