It's My Story

Life Expectancy and Living Loved by God

 

According to Reuters, the U.S. life expectancy fell by 1.5 years in 2020 to 77.3 years, the lowest level since 2003, primarily due to the deaths caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. This was the biggest one-year decline since World War Two (https://www.reuters.com/world/us/us-life-expectancy-fell-year-half-2020-due-covid-19-cdc-2021-07-21/).


Life expectancy is the average number of years a person may expect to live, and this is influenced by a variety of factors. As of 2019, the country with the highest life expectancy is Hong Kongโ€™s, 85.29, while Central African Republic ranked lowest at an average of 54 years for both males and females (https://www.worldometers.info/demographics/life-expectancy/).


Why am I talking about life expectancy? Iโ€™m talking about it because, there is the life expectancy of the average years a person expects to live depending on their immediate external surroundings, and there is our life expectancy based on how we expect our lives to go considering societal norms, culture and familial expectations.
I want to tell you a story about my life expectancy, the expectations I had for my life and how those expectations have not gone as planned and how God has loved me through the twists and turns. I canโ€™t tell you my whole life story, that is a book to be released. However, I can tell you about portions of my life that have tested my expectations for my life and redefined my life as I know it now. This will be a good place to fully disclose that my life has not ended yet, Iโ€™m still living it, God is still loving me through it and Iโ€™m continuing to learn and grow in the path that God has placed me on.
