    Can you say: You have so much more life to live! Don't worry about it.

    Can you say:

    You have so much more life to live! Don't worry about it.

    Wouldn't you be more likely not to worry about it if you were just about to die?

    Yes, but could you please check the grammar and if it makes sense or not. Thank you.

    Your sentence is fine and the grammar is correct. In addition, I disagree with Ray's implication in his question. When one has much time ahead of one, worrying can become an obsession.

    Sorry, I missed the "not" in your sentence.

    How about There's so much more to life/You have so much going for you? Your sentence is not wrong, but it doesn't hit the spot for me.
