YOLO

I just got into my first car accident. Thank GOD everyone is OK. The damage to my car is pretty minimum. The damage to my pocketbook is going to be serious. The worse part about the whole accident is that I left the house without saying "see ya later" to my husband. I didn't even give him a kiss. We normally part ways with a kiss, an "I love you" and a "see ya later."

Instead, I was mad (we were having a very minor disagreement) and I didn't have time to talk it out because I had to be somewhere. So I purposely left the house without saying anything to him (petty, I know). Then I got into a accident. On the way home I thought--what if the accident was serious? The last thing my husband would have heard me say is something with an attitude. Needless to say I felt awful because I know better! 

I needed a reminder about what is important. My relationships with my husband, family and friends are important. I need to take time to show them that I appreciate them and even though they may piss me off and get on my very last nerve, I still have their back. You never know when it is your last 

Yesterday I found out that my friends' husband died from the flu. The flu! He was only 39 years old. My hearts bleeds for her. I can't and don't want to imagine losing my husband. It is another heartbreaking reminder to live each day to the fullest. It's cliche but true. I won't get all preachy but sometimes we get so caught up in the day-to-day that we forget to appreciate what is in front of us. It's the simple things in life that make it special. 

My favorite times and memories are playing board games with my family, pillow talk with my husband, late night dance parties in the dorm at Howard. Of course I also cherish the big moments like seeing the Eiffel Tower and the cliff divers in Hawaii. Those memories are more important than if I made it to my destination on time. Instead of rushing out of the house I should have stayed and talked to my husband like we normally do. Then we could have made up in the best way possible.  


You Only Live Once #yolo Be your best always! 






I wanted to leave y'all with something lighthearted.
