Life is not a straight line

Life takes some pretty interesting dips and turns as you age, if you are lucky enough to age. Just because you are successful today doesn’t mean you will be in 5 years. Just because you are healthy right now doesn’t guarantee you will be healthy forever. The reverse is true as well. If things don’t seem to be going your way, nothing says it will always be like this.

That’s the beauty of the Resilience of the Human Spirit. You can and you will bounce back. Your choices matter, so if your life sucks, start making new and different choices. As Albert Einstein famously said,

“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

 Experience teaches us all that Life can change on a dime. Ask the girl who was texting and driving. She ran up onto the curve, hit another car, nearly killed someone else and found herself in the hospital for a year. All for typing, ‘OMG’ on her phone while piloting a 4,000 pound vehicle down a city street.
It’s very easy to believe you are immortal and things only happen to other people. Remember: life can change in an instant. This is a reminder to make better life choices for yourself.
