I am not a morning person…at all! I get up for work at 5am. It doesn’t really matter what time I go to sleep, I always just want to stay curled up in bed. I joke with my husband that sleep is my favourite part of the day, especially since I got my new mattress.
Today was different though. It’s the 5 year anniversary since my pulmonary embolism. On this day, exactly 5 years ago, I almost died. Not a day goes by that I don’t remember that. The anniversary is different though. This morning I was reminded that I’ve been given a chance to live again. I took a deep breath and jumped out of bed. Today is going to be a good day! Every year I love to celebrate ‘being alive’.
As much as I love my bed, today I’m reminded that getting out of bed and ‘living’ is not to be taken for granted. Everything can change in a split second. I shouldn’t celebrate ‘being alive’ just one day a year. Every day should be appreciated and have a purpose, and I want to go to sleep knowing that I didn’t waste the day.
Wishing you all an awesome and productive day!
