Life is Precious

We walk through life with an amazing sense of confidence and carelessness sometimes. As we pound away at the ground beneath us, we never stop to think about what or who we might be getting trampled on the soles beneath us. All we care about is ourselves, and our dreams and our destination(s). We live life in a bubble. In fact, horses with blinders see more than we do. Why? Because they tune into to those around them with their other senses. We do not.

Life is precious, and we as humans never seem to realize it until death, illness or tragedy comes knocking. We treat others as if they do not matter.....then suddenly they are gone forever. Worst of all, most of us don't learn from this mistake the first or even second time around. To me this is truly heartbreaking. It really makes me question people, their morals and their thought processes. Have we just become numb from too many poor external influences? Is this the nature of all human beings? What's the reason?

I believe most of us start out warm blooded. As we get hurt and scarred, we put up walls to protect ourselves from other people. Eventually, this creates a distance between one human and another causing somewhat of an emotional desensitization. Relationships are not as close, people don't mean as much to us, and therefore we can not get hurt quite so deeply. In the end, the value of human life crashes like the Dow Jones during a time of economic downturn, and people become assets that are now worth nothing.

This is not how I want to be treated . This is not how I want my loved ones to be treated....and this is not how I wish to treat others. I sincerely hope that this is the case for all of you too. Life is precious. It is the type of beautiful miracle that only happens once. It is meant to be appreciated with each breath and with each encounter. Every moment is special. Every heartbeat is a gift. Every life counts. Take care everyone!

See you next time!!!
