As a child it seemed like everyone lived forever, I know that I felt like my grandparents were so, so old (in reality they really weren't) but now as I get older I realise that just isn't true, death cannot be ignored and at the moment it seems so very present and in so many different ways. From peacefully in old age, from horrible, vicious cancer, from long drawn out sickness, suddenly and unexpectedly in accidents and sometimes because life is just to hard for some.
Life is just not fair sometimes.
This realisation has also left me feeling so very grateful today, for my health, for my mental strength and for the fact that I am alive and living. I am committing to making more of my life, enjoying every moment more, spending time with people I want to share life with and being a happy person.
