Labour Day Long Weekend

Sad ending to the long weekend

Unfortunately I have a sad story to tell about this weekend. I was driving home last night from my boyfriends house and ahead I could see multiple emergency service vehicles with their lights flashing. Automatically I knew it couldn’t be good because there were like 4 ambulances, 3 fire trucks, a bunch of police cruisers and random peoples vehicles pulled over on the side of the road. They had the road blocked off in one direction (not the one I was going in), so this meant that we got to drive right by the incident. Of course I’m going to drive super slow and get a glimpse of what’s going on! Human nature to be curious when something that wild is happening!

I pull up super slowly and I see a person laying on the ground (can’t tell if it’s a male or female) and they do not look good. They were clearly struck by a vehicle. The paramedics were doing CPR, fire fighters were getting blankets, and the random people that stopped to help looked in shock. It was a very sad scene lets just put it that way. You automatically get the worst feeling in your stomach. I felt incredibly sad for that person and it really makes you think.

The entire way home I was in a daze about life and how fast life can be taken away from you. This person was on their way home, minding their own business when all of a sudden they were struck by a vehicle. You literally never know when life is going to hand you a bag of shit.

I called my boyfriend right away (using hands-free people!) and told him how much he meant to me. When you see all these quotes or people tell you “life is short”, THEY’RE RIGHT! I’ve always been a firm believer in “doing everything and anything”. Here are some things that come up when I see tragic events like this:

  • Tell people you love them constantly.
  • Say you’re sorry and forget about whatever happened.
  • Don’t hold grudges.
  • Do things that make you happy.
  • Do things that make you sad.
  • Do things you might regret later, but who cares, that’s how you learn.
  • Don’t waste time being unhappy. If you’re unhappy, change it.
  • Treat your pet like it’s your child and give them a big smooch everyday.
  • And if you have a boyfriend/girlfriend NEVER GO TO BED ANGRY. You wake up in a shitty ass mood.

Ya these seem traditional and everyone says them, but they’re simple things you can do to ensure your life on earth was worth something. Everyone has a purpose and everyone has something incredible to give. Live life and be fearless.

This morning, I searched in the news to see if they had put out any information about the accident. The person was a cyclist and they were struck by a hit and run vehicle. WTF! Send prayers out to the victim that he or she gets better and hopefully the maniac who drove away gets caught or found or whatever.

Cheers guys.
