So my husband was in a car accident this week. Thankfully, he is ok but when these things happen it certainly puts life into perspective. It make me appreciate what I have, my husband, my girls, my family, my life. It is such a cliche but really, nothing else matters but that stuff. It makes me also realise that one’s life, my life, can change in the blink of an eye, and with that realisation comes the real understanding and importance of loving what I have. Appreciating it. Cherishing it. Not taking it for granted.
It’s not always easy to do because we get so caught up with the everyday little things, and in the moment, running out of sugar and no one telling me, seems like a really big deal and I feel totally justified for getting mad about it. But in the bigger scheme of things…really?? I get worked up about not having sugar in the house?? And so when these things, these brushes with potential loss of life happen, it’s a good reminder to take stock and reflect on what’s really important in my life. The stuff that really matters.
So this week’s song, a remix of Asaf Avidan’s-One Day/Reckoning Song is a song that my husband and I both love. It reminds me of his party we had a couple of years back as we were both so adamant that this song had to be played. It’s a great one to dance to because this week, I’m celebrating life and love! ‘And because one day, baby, we’ll be old,’ so it’s a good reminder to live life while we’re still (relatively) young 😉
Have a beautiful safe weekend. Hug each other a little closer. Love each a little more. Kiss each other a bit more passionately and cherish what you have.
