So I spent most of my day volunteering at the animal shelter this past Sunday. There was a lot to do and that keeps me off the grid. I get into my car, unlock my phone- BREAKING NEWS…Kobe and his daughter die in a helicopter crash. I felt how most people are feeling. Utter shock and sadness. I was never a fan of his but still, I recognize he’s one of the greats in basketball. Also a great father. At least from what I’ve seen in the media. His daughter and her teammate, so sad. Then I read about the others who lost their lives. These people left so much behind it’s heartbreaking.
This morning I get to work and hear news from a co-worker about a family member that lost his life in a freak accident also on Sunday. He was only 23.
My mom believes if we were all a little more careful we would be fine. She’s also someone who doesn’t drive on the freeway either. I was telling her if you’re meant to go, it’s going to happen. You can’t control it. I believe our fate is already written for us.
So…this is yet, another reminder to live your life NOW. We all already know this but get lost in the mundane. I am so guilty as well.
I understand we have responsibilities but at least plan to do the things you really want sooner than later.
Live in the present moment because it’s all we truly have.
