Most of us that have gone through any kind of distress, health issues, or loss (who hasn't right?) know that life can change in a heartbeat. But eventually, life has a way of pulling you back to your daily routines, your naivety that life will always be this way, until an unexpected reminder gives you a thwap across the head to say "quit taking your life as you know it for granted you idiot!"
We all know that we shouldn't take life as we know it for granted. We all know that life is precious and we shouldn't waste any of it. We all know that you should always make sure to tell those that we love "I love you". Yet so many of us continue to get caught up and focus in on the little things, the unimportant things, the things that don't matter. Why is that?
Maybe we need those thwaps across the back of the head every once in-awhile to perk us up a bit, to make us pay attention and be reminded as to what is truly the important things in life.
OK life... you've got my attention...
