Carpe Diem...

Hey everyone

I was rudely reminded yesterday about the extreme fragility of life. I heard that my old friend from primary schools 12 year old brother had died. Of a suspected heart attack. At 12 years old? This is just crazy - how can young healthy child just drop dead on the football field without any previous issues with his heart. It makes no sense. And that is a sad fact of life - it's unpredictable. And although I haven't been close to his sister for a good few years, we still grew up together - our parents were still best friends at one time - it has still hit me pretty hard. I can't even begin to imagine what his family must be going through. It's just devastating.

The instability of life has just been brought home to me and it saddens me that this is what it took. We all are guilty of being complacent with life and the people in it. We shouldn't be. We should seize each moment and cherish our time here because the sad fact is that it could be snatched away from us at any moment in a way which had never even crossed our minds.

So I'm saying this to you - Carpe Diem. Seize the day. Live your life - don't waste it.
