Настроение сейчас - благодарное
Life is beautiful. That is what I tell myself when I wake up every single morning. Life is a gift. I understand it now, when I am 19, I hope to understand it when I am 40. “... A friend once gave me good advice - to live each day is a gift, not a given right." I don’t know who said that but I like this saying very much. What if today is the last day of your life? What if there is no tomorrow? What have you achieved in your life? What are you going to leave after yourself?
I have asked myself that question many times already. Usually when you are young, you do not think about death. You think that the whole life is ahead of you, you have so much time to love, create, achieve your goals and be happy. Nothing can stop you because you have no obligations, no rules, nothing…but that is not true. I understood that last year when I got into a horrible accident with my ex-boyfriend. I remember those couple seconds before the accident happened. We were driving on the highway and I do not remember how many miles per hour he was going but I know for sure that he was speeding. All of a sudden the car that was driving in front of us stopped without even turning the hazard lights on. My ex-boyfriend pushed the break all the way down twice but it did not work and we crashed into that car. Before the crash I had a very strange feeling. I knew I could have died but I did not. I broke the window with my head, I almost broke my legs but…I did not die. That accident made me understand that a human’s life is like a lamp. Any second someone can turn off the switch and BAMF! - you are dead. That is why it is so important to understand how precious and short the life is and it can be taken away from you in any moment.
