Darker Thursday

Hey Everybody,

Today’s blog will probably benefit me, way more than it’ll benefit you (not implying that my blogs ever benefit you anyway). Today was an extremely overwhelming day. I had a great morning, was even feeling pretty lucky. I caught both of my busses ON TIME today, and got home earlier than usual. Then, my mom comes and gives me some news. At first I was shocked, then frustrated, and then just bitter about our bad luck(It wasn’t a huge deal but something I rather not share here).

Anyway, while dealing with this first issue, we received a phone call from a family member. We received some more news about something totally unrelated, but definitely life changing ( not involving me, but someone else). In this moment it made me really realize, that even when situations are tough or unfair, it could always be worse. I’ve always tried to ” live in the present,” but find myself thinking about my past or dreaming about my future. Moments will come and go so quickly, all we really have is right now. I suddenly really appreciated how small my first issue was. Suddenly reminded myself how much I really have to be thankful for. How it is SO crucial to spend as much time as you can with people that you care for, since you never know when your last good day will be ( yup I got that last line from the fault in our stars).

I also wanted to send out my thoughts and prayers to the families who lost their loved ones on MH17.

Anyway, I’ve wanted to blog lately but there’s been so much on my mind. I don’t know if the stuff above me made any sense at all, but it helped me get a few thoughts out.

Have a good night everybody πŸ™‚

Alice
