I recently received some news in the post that I wasn’t expecting, hadn’t given much thought about and totally wasn’t prepared for. It’s funny how something so small as words on a white sheet of paper can shake up your entire world, but it’s these small things that open your eyes and allows you to really reflect on what’s important to YOU and your life right now.
My news isn’t life or death, it’s not something that will (hopefully) affect me long term but even so, it’s got me thinking and mulling over everything I take advantage of and it’s really shone a light on that we are never promised tomorrow.
So what is important to me? RIGHT NOW, in this moment in time…
-my sweet, kind and beautiful partner
-my health (such as it is)
-enjoying the little things
-remembering that it’s always darkest before dawn
So, looking at that above list, it’s all things that are important to me regardless but my perspective has been altered dramatically. These are people and my passions that will not be taken for granted anymore and cherished all the more.
I think my point is, try not to get too comfortable with your life. You be the one to decide to shake up your outlook, not have it thrown on you like it did for me.
I’ll be in the hospital tomorrow, wish me good news and once I get out I’ll be out there trying to live my life 110%
Live long and prosper, be excellent to each other ^^ x
