There's a fine line between life and death. You would think that someone who has experienced how thin this line truly is, would enjoy life to the fullest. The words 'Carpe Diem' (seize the day) seems simple, but living up to it is more difficult than you think.
I've come across some bumpy roads during the journey of my life. I'm trying not to let adversity pull me down and I do my best to learn from the past. Loosing people whom you care for is hard, but it is a part of life, unfortunately. It doesn't matter how often you experience it, it never gets any easier.
Sometimes I feel like I'm being challenged by the Man up above, because I've cheated death on a couple of occasions, while people who I love left us to be with Him up in Heaven. As tough as it has been, somehow I've managed to overcome these mourning processes. I still don't understand why we need to go through these losses, but I know that somehow I'll find the strength to carry on with life without them.
I know that I'll face another difficult season very soon. I've been sent another message on how precious and short life truly is. All I can do is to try to live life the best way I can and enjoy every good moment to the fullest, for those dark days are right around the corner. In time, they will disappear again, but I'm not looking forward to the process in the middle.
