In Shock

Yesterday before I left work for class I found out that one of my former co workers passed away. We were not that close and I had not seen him in 4 years but still feel shocked. He was only 30 years old and he died from a brain aneurysm. When things like this happen especially to someone around my age it makes me appreciate life. You just never know what tomorrow brings.


  1. I definitely understand. Last year, a male friend from college who I hadn't seen in over 20 years was murdered. I felt sick for a while. However, it gave me the desired to re-establish my relationships with family members and friends who I hadn't communicated in years. It also helped me to evaluate my life.

    Life can be short and we need to realize how precious it is and live it to the fullest.

  2. It is even more jilting when death is unexpected. You're right, we don't know what tommorow may bring and each day should be lived as if it's the last.

    should speak, smile, and show kindess to ne another because we don't know if it's the last time we may see someone.

  3. You are right. I would be in shock too. I know exactly how you feel being that we are dealing with that now with our family's recent tragedy. It was an eye opener for a lot of people. I try to live each day as if it is my last. I am getting better at that!
