Tragedies are lessons as well...the hardest ones.

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Managed to exercise today even though I didn't want to whatsoever, I just wanted to crawl into bed as soon as I got home. Forced myself to...It helped clear my head a little...but not my heart.

A woman was hit and dragged by a bus yesterday afternoon outside of work. Sadly she died this morning as a result of her injuries. My heart goes out to that woman, her fear, her pain...I can't imagine being dragged and pinned under a bus. My heart goes out to her loved ones.

My thoughts are with the bus driver as well, may she find her inner strength to cope with such a traumatic experience. It was not her fault, but to live with that....words cannot describe such a hardship.

I hope colleagues from work who witnessed this tragedy if not it's aftermath are able to find comfort, help and healing from their loved ones and friends. May they find their inner strength as well.

I found out this morning my close friend at work has not been in because her daughter is ill. Her daughter has been so ill she has spent most of this week in the hospital. To see my friend burst into tears over fear for her daughter was beyond words. May her sweet angel heal quickly and well. I wish her daughter to be home and happy as the sweet child she always is.

To hear of such heartbreak happening only steps away while my day goes on at my desk as it normally does is a lesson. Nothing can be taken for granted.

Today is not the day to celebrate tracking food, exercising or acheiving goals in regards to my weight loss.

Today is a reminder of how precious life is. Today is a reminder of how short life can be. Today is about love, not only through the good times......
but also the bad.

    That is so sad. I hope you look after yourself. Actually,
    I went to a funeral today and the celebrant's words are
    still ringing in my ears. He reminded us all that Frank
    had led a good life and we must remember that life is
    so precious and not to waste a minute regretting.
