and puts you in a life-threatening situation (NOT kidding.. I mean I could have actually died!).. but you come out relatively unscathed.. then you know it is time for one of the many cliches in life, but one that you seldom acknowledge anyway!
Apologies for that extremely long sentence – but I am truly blessed! To be 25 and alive, to have a loving awesome husband, a supportive family and friends, limbs that function, the intellect and ability to be employed in one of the best companies in the world, to be financially independent.. and the list is endless! I’ve been blessed just to have come out of this life-threatening situation without going under a knife…
I guess there are a few things I don’t have.. but they just pale in comparison to the above list. Sometimes life gives you some such worst moments, but then that is also the time when you realize how truly lucky and blessed you are, compared to so many less fortunate people. And it is also these moments that give you that sense of purpose.. to treasure your life and live it optimally, and to help other people to the best of your ability.
The past couple of weeks have been a roller coaster ride for me – but today, I feel like a new person! And I’m grateful to God for giving me this opportunity to find that greater purpose in my life.
I know I’ve used a lot of big words in this post, and although I didn’t know how to make it sound less ingenuine, I truly am a changed person from today! 🙂
