As trite as it may sound, do not take anything for granted. Time has a way of changing things. Taking things. Love. Dreams. Hopes.
I work as an Emergency Medicine Physician Assistant in an environment of variably organized chaos where people’s lives are serially disrupted by illness and injury. I excel in managing other’s crises.
Still, I thought I was exempt. When illness and death hit my home, I experienced things on the other side and it was a defining moment that has changed me, forever. Illness and injury happen way too often and it is unsettling.
Illness and injury happen and there is never a good time for it, regardless of the magnitude. Death is certain and it always comes too soon, in any case. I do not want you to live in fear. I just want you to live and do so intentionally. Today. Start now. The someday maybe may never. Love. Believe. Dream. Share. Effect Change. For this moment will not come again and the next one may never. What would you do differently if I told you tomorrow things will never be the same or just may never come at all?
