Earlier this week, I was coming home from work. It was a closing shift, so I left around 1am.
While driving home on the highway, I noticed two bright lights in front of me. A car was going the wrong way on the highway, right at me.
I swerved off the road quickly, and luckily did not hurt myself, anyone else or my car.
I immediately called 911 to alert them of someone driving the wrong way. They could have been drunk, on medication, or someone who did not know any better.
A couple of hours after the incident, my mind started to wonder.
I was only a half a mile away from a bridge.
If I was on the bridge, I would not be able to swerve out of the way.
I also thought about if I did not react quickly enough.
Then I realized something……
Two years ago, if I did not change my life I would not have to have worried about this. If I did not eat differently, if I did not work out, if I did not have a different mentality, I do not know how my life would have turned out.
I might have been divorced.
I might have been unemployed.
I might have been dead.
I would not have a wonderful son. I would not have wonderful followers.
But I did make that decision, and now I love everything that life throws at me, no matter how difficult.
Everyone takes today to tell people how thankful they are.
I will take the other 364 days to do that.
