Now, of course, this post is insanely satirical, and in no way am I suggesting for you to go out and try to self inflict these methods of pleasure slash punishment upon yourself, even though I know a bunch of you can already relate to the underpaid and over-worked ways of death mentioned above.

Your life is important. You matter! If your mind has been wandering or you have been having thoughts that could bring harm to yourself, please, just take a minute to stop, breathe, find your comfort zone, and talk with someone if you cannot get out of your rut on your own. A lot of people would miss you if you were not here, so, stick around so you can live the life you were meant to live.

Family and real, genuine friends that are like family are here for you if you find yourself in a place that you cannot seem to get out of. You are special. You are loved. You are wanted. You are needed. You deserve to live an unmasked life to its fullest just like everyone else.

If you have any insanely satirical suggestions you would like to add to the list I have provided above, I welcome them in the comment section of this post. I look forward, with great anticipation, to what your creative minds can surmise and add to this lighthearted post.

Death by (insanely thought of thing), Obit reads, “If You Had To Go and Could Choose, How Would You Want To Leave This Earth?”

Check out my podcast : Season 2 has officially started

Spotify, Apple, Google podcasters : search “vernonwrites”


In this podcast, I dig into the premise of the phrase "Don't Look Down" and how it applies to me and my current struggle – getting second and third degree burns on my foot and having to get a skin graft to repair the damage. I not only give eye witness testimony of what I encountered in the days following my accident, but I also discuss the mental, physical, and spiritual battle that exists with this type of injury. What does one do when faced with pain and the unknown that we call the future? Do you give up? Do you keep climbing your mountain? Do you question yourself? Do you reflect? Do you become angry? Do you let fear creep in? Do you remain confident? After going through a traumatic event, some people would say they are no longer the same person they were before. Some would say they are a better version of what they used to be. Some might confess to being the same person. I know where I stand and am proud to know, when I'm nervous about being at a high, foreign elevation, all I really need to do is stare at the incredible view in front of me and not do the one thing that my body tempts me into doing – looking down. From here on out, I have to promise myself to keep my line of sight facing forward so it is easier for me to take that first step and walk. The lesson was simple and it was there, in front of me, the entire time. — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
