I am on a mission of reflection and appreciating second chances right now. Last week some crazy stuff happened that I couldn't have even anticipated, and it made me stop right in my tracks, and reflect and be so eternally grateful for the many, many good things (both tangible and intangible) that I have in my life.
I am at a place right now that is requiring me to not be so busy, to let nature dictate what my body can and cannot handle, to listen to those subtle and often no so subtle queues, and get lots of rest and let everything else go. To realize stuff is just that, stuff, and people are not replaceable. To let those you love in your life know that you love them, not by just saying the words, but letting your actions scream it out loud.
Also this is an opportunity to change negative thoughts and actions, to go in a positive direction, and realize that tomorrow is not promised to any of us.
That was my big wake up call last week, and a lesson I hope I will never forget.
