Some may say that nothing is ever worth dying for. But I must disagree. Life is worth dying for.
What do I mean by this? I mean that before I “clinically died,” I wasn’t a whole person. I had less empathy. I had only focused on things that were important to me and a few close others in my life. I was resentful towards people who were mean to me or my family. I was selfish and I was powerless. I thought of myself as spiritual and “religious,” but in reality I was just going through the motions trying to figure out life for myself and portraying an image that was polished for others who could only see the surface.
I have literally been pieced back together on the inside and now my soul needed the healing necessary to actually live.
Therapy has been a wonderful thing. And my family is seeing an incredible change in me since I came out of this. Because for the first time in my life, I am actually ALIVE. I feel like I have had a REBIRTH. I am a changed person. You cannot go through any of this and come out of it unscathed. But for me, I have come out of this with heavy scars and heavy memories that will last throughout this second lifetime and beyond. And that is a wonderful thing. I love deeper, I live fully and I breathe in every moment.
Every time any of you share your deep, personal stories with me, I feel honored and humbled by the fact that you have chosen to take your precious time and connect with a complete stranger on a very deep, spiritual level. I do not take one of those moments for granted.
I wrote this quote earlier this week and wanted to share it with you all.
A NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE NEVER COMES AT A GOOD TIME. BUT WHAT IT LEAVES YOU WITH, IS REALIZING TIME IS A PRECIOUS GIFT. ONLY SOME OF US ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE GIVEN A SECOND CHANCE. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME. START LIVING!
Start your life, living to the fullest. Breathe. Love. Live!
