Welcome to The Invisible Vision Project’s Blog.
Today’s blog, by it’s title, you might find it unusual. The truth is, this past weekend, for me, it went very unexpectly, and even dangerously.
Have you ever experienced a close call of a life and death experience? I have. And it is moments like these that make me re-think about my life, again and again.
You see, the start of 2017 didn’t go well with me, I experienced a first medical emergency of the year only 5 days after New Year’s Day. But, never have I imagined, to have experience a second, only 2 months, and exactly 2 months after that.
By this time, I think I’m no longer surprised of emergencies, because this wasn’t the first time, and I know it won’t be the last. And sometimes I make the joke that I think I’m a ‘dangerous’ person because I somehow got a time bomb with me (Laugh). But, every time, surviving it and recovery from it, this process, is kind of scary, and of course it takes time.
But, I must say, every incidents I had experiencing situations like these, it makes me feel just how thankful, grateful and lucky to just by being alive. As much as this may make me sound like an old granny, when I’m only a young adult by age. It is terrifying to realize that not only older people get sick, or that only older people die, because it happens to young people too.
In my life, I’ve already know 2 young people, in their early 20s, passed away due to illness. Their passing sadded, and troubled me, but it made me think a lot about life, and it’s meanings. So, I’ve really come to realize the gift of life. We don’t need to be rich, to be beautiful, to have a big house, to have a lot of money or even a happy family; these things are all luxury. All we need, is a good health, and to stay alive. This alone, is already a blessing. Because, without life, we won’t exist. Treasure life: Live everyday like it’s your last.
Thank you for reading to the end!
