Sometimes when you forget to value life and all it offers you, it will come back around and hit you in the face.

Yesterday was such a day. Around mid-day I had a bad moment where I really forgot about all the good things in my life and focused on all the bad ones; all my mistakes, everything that is not going that well, everything I haven’t achieved. Then I got some bad news that suddenly just put me into the right place, changed my perspective.

I just want to remind you to value everything you have, even if it doesn’t seem like much at the time. Life is fragile, and you never know when everything you have will just be ripped from underneath your feet and you’ll be lying naked on the ground, wondering what on earth happened. In those moments you will wish you would have valued what you had when you had it, because all you want to do is go back to the time when you had those things.

In moments like this there is nothing else to do than pray and hope for the best.
