What I Learned From My Car Accident
I was recently involved in a bad auto accident and I find myself wondering what life lesson this had for me. That was a huge eye opener on life and that in a blink of an eye it could all be gone…just like that.
I was knocked unconscious by the impact and the air bag so the good thing is I don’t remember anything about the accident. My first memory is lying in the back of the ambulance being given oxygen as the paramedics tried to bring me back from my unconscious state.
As I lay in the emergency room, I found myself analyzing my life and thanking God that I was still alive. The good news is, nobody else was hurt and my dog Casey wasn’t with me.
Since that day, the physical recovery has been difficult, but not as difficult as the emotional recovery. I have learned a lot about myself and about what really matters in this world.
I am not invincible and I cannot control everything that happens in my life. I gotta learn to let go of the reins a bit and just go with the flow. I need to be better about accepting the things that come my way that I didn’t plan for. And still be a better person after.
As someone who is in constant motion, it taught me to slow down a little.
I have learned to live each day honestly and fully.
I feel blessed and am very grateful that I have family and neighbors who stepped in to help me cope emotionally with this ordeal. There are so many good people in this world. Sometimes we get so caught up in the drama of world news, politics, social media and current events, we forget to look at the big picture. Look for the good in everyone…everyone is dealing with something we don’t know about.
If you have a bucket list…start doing those things. If you don’t have a bucket list…make one. We all have dreams and aspirations for ourselves and for our family. Waiting for “someday”….well, that “someday” may never come.
As I continue to heal physically and emotionally, I have a different perspective on life. The things that matter in life are not “things.” When tragedy strikes, you can either let it break your spirit, or use it as an opportunity to grow and look at life with a different perspective.
I have chosen to grow from it.
