Last Friday, there was a fatal accident right outside of my wife's work. She said she saw the entire thing happen. Driver A had a seizure while driving and crossed the lane and ran head on into Driver B. Driver B died. Driver B was simply crossing the bridge, probably on his way back from lunch or something. He had absolutely no idea that morning would be the last morning he would brush his teeth, possibly kiss his wife goodbye, take his kids to school. listen to ESPN radio, or whatever else he liked to do. It's truly an accident that he never even saw coming. It's something that could happen to ANYONE and ANYTIME. He just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
My point in this is to ensure that you seize every single day of our life. You may hate your job. But you are alive and have a job. You may have little aches and pains that are associated with getting older. Be thankful you are getting older. Your children may be annoying. Make sure you cherish every day with them. You didn't run your last 5k in the time you wanted. Make sure you train hard today because you can.
My intention is not meant to be overdramatic. I just wanted to say that I am glad to be alive and will continue to thank God for every day he gives me.
