I’ve never really been one to dwell on the past, or for that matter acknowledge the past, but sometimes moments in life occur that are a little harder to forget than others. Sometimes these moments make you reevaluate everything you’ve ever done. This happened to me recently and I was faced with a problem of remorse for lost actions. Then I started thinking about the big picture. I don’t appreciate enough the kind of life I live and am ashamed of how I take this for granted sometimes. I don’t deserve the quality of friends I have or the kind of family I have and I need to take time out of my day more to truly appreciate the gifts I have in my life. If everything were to end tomorrow for me would I be satisfied with the way I’ve lived life? At this current moment I’d definitely say no to that statement. Maybe it takes major events like these to keep us all in check emotionally. Maybe there’s benefit to every little thing that happens. This little blog post is just an attempt to make others think about the blessings they have in their lives and how lucky we all really are to be alive at all. From this point on I’m not wasting it.
