We know this: life really is short. It goes by quickly, one minute you’re young and free, then next you’re looking back on those years with fondness. One day it’s January and you’re still writing 2017, then next day it’s December and you’re preparing for the new year.
We know this. We hear it from our friends, family members, strangers on social media. We know this. Yet until yesterday I never really thought about it.
I was involved in a car crash.

Not exactly how I had planned on ending my day / week. Thank you to the volunteers who stopped and assisted and the workers who came to our disaster this afternoon, I cannot thank you all enough. I’m okay (bruised and sore but nothing major) and my poor little car came off second best. Second write off in 12 months haha. I’m definitely not aiming for a third FYI.
I’m okay, the other car involved is okay, our cars took the brunt of the force and came off second best. One second the road was clear, the next second a car was in my lane and we crashed. It was scary, it was terrifying, I’m feeling the price for it today, and the literally price is coming once the insurance comes back to me.
So here’s my takeaway:
- I’m going to start that business I’ve been mapping out in my notebooks
- I’m going to end every phone call with I love you
- I’m going to give everything my all
- I want more life making moments
- I want to help and love others
We never know what tomorrow brings.
