You hear it all the time. People telling you to live as if tomorrow is your last day or to live life to the fullest, but do you really? I thought I was until I got into an accident. Then it hit me like a slap in the face.
I wasn’t living, I was surviving with a few perks. I put myself last and waited too long to enjoy the simple things I planned for myself. I had all these ideas and plans that I shelved away, telling myself that I’ll have time to get to them. Well, I almost didn’t.
Fear of losing the only thing I really have – my life, made me realize that I have to put it into perspective. To go over my goals and dreams and stop procrastinating about the one thing that will make me happy. I would hate to have regrets and to think that “I could have” or “should have”, when all along it was in my grasp.
I have had time to reflect and through the pain of getting better, there are many things I will change – little things that I put off before.
Take responsibility of your life and your happiness. Don’t forget about taking care of you – emotionally. Don’t forget to love you.
