I've been thinking about Kevin Ware, laying up in a hospital bed tonight, wondering about his future, and the thoughts going through my mind informed me about a few things I want to share with you.
You might think that you have lots of years left on this earth, lots of opportunities, options galore, but the truth is, you just dont know.
You might think that waiting one more year for that dream vacation you've been wanting to share with your family is a prudent economic decision.
You might think that what went on in Cypress cant happen in the western world, that when it comes down to it, politicians will choose you over the banks that fund their campaigns.
You might think that the person you neglect, ignore, and say harsh things to, will keep on forgiving you and remain patiently by your side.
You might think there is some kind of honor in working like a madman to make someone else rich while you can barely pay your bills.
You might think that crazy idea you have is just the product of a wandering mind, and has no chance of success.
What I am trying to say, is that today is all you know that you have. You have no idea about tomorrow, and what it might bring.
You may think you have it all figured out, when in fact, tomorrow might screw up your entire life's plan.
My advice, whether you want it or not, is to love those you love, like tomorrow is not promised to you, because it aint.
Take that trip, buy that house, marry that woman/man, get that degree, start that business, have that baby, buy that puppy, learn to do that thing you always dreamed of, and whatever you do, love your people like you might never see them again.
Make it happen, because in reality, nobody is stopping you, but you.
Just go for it.
Thanks for reading.
