Something happened last week that made me stop and think about how lucky I am in life and how much I appreciate and love everyone that I’m surrounded by on a daily basis.
One of the ladies that I work with, her husband left the house as normal in the morning and was involved in a motorbike accident. He won’t ever come home again and that breaks my heart. How many times have I rushed out the door and yelled goodbye, assuming that Boyfriend and I will both make it home safely that night? Anything can happen and I want to make sure that each and every day, my family and friends know that I love them.
It’s made me realise that every second of life should be enjoyed, even the mundane, everyday things. Nothing is important enough to have an argument about it and fall out, disagree and move on and still love each other. The age old reminder to never leave or go to bed on an argument is something that has definitely struck home with me
I’m a very sentimental person normally, but since the accident, I’ve become even more so. I cherish photos and memories and living in the moment in a way that I don’t think many people my age do. My home is covered in photos of my nearest and dearest and tokens of our friendships and relationships across the years. It’s such a special thing, to show your loved ones that they’re appreciated and it’s something that I’m going to focus on from now on.
To my family and friends, I am always here for you, no matter the time of day. If you need me, I’ll answer the door or the phone. And I hope that you would do the same for me.
