When you're so close to death...

Life is so unexpected. It really shakes you up when you realise how much of it we take for granted, and how much we really need to start being appreciative. Sometimes it takes events in our lives to remind us of this. This week was challenging enough in that sense, and I felt blessed in a strange way to be able to say goodbye to a soul I had never met. He was only 39 years and it just felt like he was cheated by life, and I'm sure that's what his family and fiance had thought. How unfair to be taken so quickly, not being able to even say a last goodbye. It's times like this when you realise how precious every moment in your life is, and how every minute counts, and how you should just have the courage to take the bull by the horn and do whatever it is you've been dreaming of doing. Everything seems to be on such a small scale when it's weighed against death, you realise how insignificant most things are that you've been pulling  your hair out on.
It's definitely made me look at life in a different light, and made me realise that I shouldn't sweat the little things, and if you're wise and calm, with God's grace, the big things will take care of itself! Live life, and dance like nobody is watching!
