When Chadwick Boseman died earlier this year, his death brought about a collective grief and people around the world mourned him not just for the roles he played, but for the person he was.

Lupita Nyongo penned one of the most deeply moving tributes about him and reflected on the life he lived.

“I write these words from a place of hopelessness, to honor a man who had great hope. Chadwick was a man who made the most of his time, and somehow also managed to take his time…”

“He used his life force to tell meaningful stories.”

At every point, we have more behind us than we have in front of us. Nobody really knows how long they have left to live but it does not stop us from planning, loving, creating, and being – and it shouldn’t.

But how do we live consciously, taking our time and at the same time not wasting it?

It is the value we give each moment. It is also in our decisions and what we consider valuable.
