Near Death and Twice as Alive
The other day Blog Bloke had a near death experience.
Believe it or not I was just walking on the sidewalk on my way to the Dr.’s office, and turning a corner I hadn’t noticed the curb’s change in elevation. I was half way through the turn when I went for a tumble, landing on my left knee which was closest to the road.
My sports training kicked in, and to absorb the fall I automatically did a roll-over which was almost my undoing.
It happened in the blink of an eye, and everything seemed to go well until I realized I was partly on the road and a Van just happened to be sharing the same space.
It was right on top of me before I even realized what was happening. Now I know what it is like to see the underside of a van as it went whizzing past my head just inches away. It will be a snapshot I will carry with me the rest of my life.
After seeing first hand how quickly life can come to an abrupt end it made me realize all the more what they are always telling us. Enjoy every day to its fullest because you just never know.
Watch where you’re going and have a great day!
