Yesterday was a hard day. Perhaps you were at the Boston Marathon, reside in the US, or (like me) live in an entirely different country and watched coverage on television. I had one thought as the breaking news came on the TV set in my living room:
Life changes in a second.
Did I know this already? Absolutely. I almost died a few years ago. This statement is not an embellishment. I understand life is short, yet I in the past few months I became full of days writing articles, social media, and errands. I forgot that life could be shaken up in a second.
I cannot take this second back for a refund. I have to spend it as wisely as I do money.
I have to Try my best to make the most of the moments that turn into hours, days, and months of life. Why? I have life – what a glorious thing to say!
The Tunes with Tuesday post today is Try by Nelly Furtado.
The song details a woman’s struggles to understand life as “the more I grow the less I know.” I truly do not understand why the bombings happened in Boston. I do not get why people have intentions to hurt other people of the same race, the human race. I do know that if we are able, we need to try to be kind to one another. Perhaps that is corny, but I will never apologize for my feelings. I did that too much in the past. I am out of apologies.
On what is sure to be a difficult day for many people, I wish you a moment to spend in the light. This is christyb saying, Enjoy the warmth of what you define as your light.
