I got up on Saturday morning and poured a cup of coffee (or three). Then, I was reading and checking emails. A morning of routine. Soon I went for an early morning walk. The morning breeze felt amazing.
I was walking close to the edge of the road and walking toward traffic. All of a sudden, I noticed a car that was traveling directly toward me… directly at me. As he got closer, I hopped off the road and well into the grass. As it came up on me, I could see inside the car. The driver was a young man wearing a work shirt with a name tag. He wasn’t looking at me. Probably headed for work; probably running late.
Fortunately I was able to get out of the way. But it was a reminder of how life can change in an instant. Life is about moments.
During a recent NBA championship game, the announcer was discussing that Golden State’s coach, Steve Kerr, was fortunately back on the sideline coaching. He has been dealing with health issues related to his back. The announcer added, “If you don’t have health, you don’t have anything”.
In my years of representing clients, I have noticed that usually their injuries occur while they are just doing the routine of life. And then, in that instant, many have their lives changed.
The importance of life’s moments. “It is not a case of finding the meaning for the moments, but giving the moments meaning”. (Steven Readhead, Life is Simply a Game).
And here is some lion humor just because!
And for our pic o’ day, this just makes me laugh!
