This morning I was in a convenience store getting my Diet Rockstar to start my day before I workout. Someone asked if anyone had heard about a plane crash out at the lake where my parents cabin is. Several hours later a friend calls to let me know that two friends of mine had been in a plane crash the night before. One made it out with a few scratches, one lost his life. Last night a woman drove out by the same friends house and took her own life, because she was depressed by the recent loss of a family member. It's so crazy how one minute someone is there, and the next minute they can be gone.
It's days like this that remind me that yeah, pain is a part of life and that is just the way it is. There is SO much to live for though. No matter what happens to us, one freedom that no one can take away from us is our freedom of how we choose to respond to it. I look at my life everyday and think how lucky I am to be me, with my amazing family and friends. I know there is someone out there who REALLY does have it tough. These are the moments I remind myself that THIS IS NOT A DRESS REHEARSAL and I better make this day count because yesterday is gone and tomorrow isn't here yet. THIS DAY is really all I have so I better live it for all it's worth.
So I leave you with the lovethislife manifesto:
