I thought I would take some time this morning (while I’m feeling slightly more sane) to write about the happenings from this truly maddening week.
As most of you will know, I found out on Wednesday my 19 year old cousin died in a extremely horrific accident. He, and two others were taken this week and it’s been all over the papers and the internet which has been a little crazy for our family to deal with.
He was truly an amazing person and he had one of the biggest hearts I think I have ever seen on one single person.
I have all these crazy emotions, struggles and even the feeling of guilt. Their are so many things I wish I had said to him. So much regret of not making the effort I should have. The feeling of wanting to tell someone how much you love them when it’s all too late is one of the hardest pills to swallow.
You truly don’t realise just how important family is until something so cruel happens, and I think that is the saddest part of all. We often get too caught up in our own lives, we forget to take the time for those around us.
Your whole world could change in just an instant. Hold your loved ones close and let them know you care. Be kind to yourself and others. Don’t take this life for granted. Live every fucking second those who can’t.
