You cannot control the length of your life, only the depth...

Boo! I missed my birthday blog post. I turned 3 years old on April 15th, 2009. It sucks that it is on Tax Day because I'm always so busy and everyone else is otherwise engaged. I don't even think my DBF remembered it was my birthday. He hasn't said anything and it's been over a week. I'm gonna guess it slipped his mind.

April 15th, 2006 is the most important day of my life. It is the day I was given a second chance. Not very many people ever get that chance so I want to make sure I never forget. The story behind what happened isn't really what matters, the outcome of the situation is. The outcome is that the Universe, God, Gods, Mother, whomever, decided it wasn't my time to leave this earth and pushed me back to life after a tragic motorcycle accident. I say pushed because that is exactly what he/she/they did! Pushed me back all the time I was begging to stay.

I think about that accident almost every day. I remember exactly what happened leading up to the crash, and I remember where I went when I was "dead". I mostly recall how bad it hurt to be alive. Some will argue there is no after life. I'm here to tell you there most certainly is. It is a place I NEVER wanted to leave. I'm not sure if it's the same for everyone, however, for me, it was perfect love, pain free, and beautiful. It was everything I long for in this life and MORE! The ironic thing is, as much as I protested being sent back to my broken body, once I was conscious I realized what a true miracle it was! OMG! I got a second chance. I was dead and now I'm alive!

Let me say Happy Birthday to me since no one else did. I won't ever forget that this life is precious. You never know if you're going to see tomorrow, so please make today count. Please just DO IT. I know it's cliche, but I am going to say it over and over again. Live today like it's your last. You just never know if it will be. Make sure everyone you love knows how much you love them. Hug your family, your friends, your mentors, your boss, your mailman! Heck, hug the grocery girl at the check out counter. Smile BIG and don't fret the small stuff. Be BIG! Be BRAVE! Make a list of everyone and everything you are grateful for and let them know! Live, love, laugh, share and pay it forward!
