Located at a rest stop on Vancouver Island, there was a short but very decent walking trail through the trees and along a lake.
I came across this dead bat. I know, I know… eewww… But what caught my attention was where he was located, and how he lay.
It looked like he had struggled as he crawled up and onto this piece of flat wood, where it died. It was kinda sad really. Wonder what happened to him? Poor little guy….
I know, not exactly the most uplifting post, but these are the types of things I do come across.
For Personal Reasons,
– I wasn’t going to publicly share this –
However, I feel I have to share a portion of it to further prove a point…
(While out on my kayaking adventure…)
Having just kayaked the morning, we pulled up on a beach with a restaurant. Waiting for our food to be served… all of a sudden, a gentleman collapsed to the ground from a massive heart attack. Another gentleman and I immediately jumped in and performed CPR. He didn’t survive, leaving behind his screaming and very distraught wife.
So here’s the thing…
One minute I’m paddling and enjoying life’s experiences, watching the dolphins play, stingrays flying underwater, paddling through fields of jellyfish, and seeing many new things I’ve never experienced.
Within an instance… and at the opposite end of the spectrum
… a life ended.
This unfortunate incident further proves my point. It’s important to realize that you (me) were never promised tomorrow, let alone 5 minutes from now, so while you can, please go out and enjoy the time you do have.
This was a very harsh reminder of “Why I do what I do”
& Live for today, because you were never promised tomorrow.
