My Grandpa on his last days wasn't sick or sad or had any major health condition but he used to tell me that he can't wait to gracefully leave without being hospitalized or have his life medically prolonged. Days went by then one day they couldn't wake him up in the morning, he died in his sleep. He always told me he had a good life and now he can't wait to rest, he was so accepting of death and I think that's why he lived a great life. Till his last days, he participated in the lottery regularly and really wanted to win big lol, not so he could take the money for himself but to give it to us to live a better life. My Grandma who outlived him till today tells me that her wish is to die the same way.
I think as we age we become more and more familiar with the idea of death being inevitable. It's ok to think about death but you shouldn't think much about dying because it can create a big wall between wanting to achieve and living a prisoner of a thought that you can change nothing about. Death has been happening since the beginning of life, it will continue to happen regardless if you approve it, like it or want it to happen so you might as well make peace with it. I like it when people say "Rest In Peace" because to me that's what death essentially is, resting in peace, and I'm a huge pro-life person, I love living and i have so much i want to achieve, to me my greatest fear is dying without achieving anything of any worth, not death itself.
