Our daily lives are filled with the times where we don’t think of it. At a moment’s notice, everything can change. It’s a startling fact I have been taught on so many occasions it becomes boggling to the mind that I don’t take the lesson more seriously. Everything can go from fine to horrible in a moment. It is something that we all should recognize.
But this isn’t to scare us. I say it because we need to understand it, respect it, and then appreciate what we have.
I was given another reminder of it today. While I was not directly involved in the situation, it still resonated. Things can change in a mere second. A decision we believe innocuous can become disastrous. Just remember that. We all need to find a way to appreciate what we have.
