Did I have a good day? Did I do that right? And say that right? The day is done and take the knowledge and leave it at that. Take only the good things out of the day and discard the unnecessary. Don’t worry about what didn’t happen or should have or shouldn’t have. People say life is too short but think about it – how many tragedies happen daily to everyday people? Really believe it – LIFE IS SO VERY SHORT.
Life is amazingly short and it just takes a few positive steps to make your life the wonder it can be:
1. Choose not to worry
2. look for things that make you smile
3. forgive others
4. surround yourself in positive people
5. be with nature
A tragedy this week in Australia:
It has happened to a dentist, a postal clerk, a social worker, a police officer, an accountant, a soldier, a paralegal, an electrician, a nurse, a construction worker, an assistant principal and a pizza chef.
A baby boy, nearly one-years-old, died after being left in a car. The car was found in front of a day care centre in Helena Valley, Western Australia, on Wednesday at 4pm yesterday.
Police are still investigating, but say they they are not treating the death as suspicious, but as a tragic accident.
It is understood the boy’s father arrived at the childcare centre to pick up his son, but staff told him his child had never been dropped off. The shocked father returned to his vehicle, where he found the unresponsive boy in the backseat of the car.
Writer Gene Weingarten won a Pulitzer Prize for a Washington Post investigation which found 15 to 25 children die each year in the United States from being left in cars.
Weingarten chronicled how ordinary people simply forgot their baby was in the car. It was reported people go about their ordinary lives, leaving their child in the car, not through neglect but because they believed they had dropped the baby at day care, or with a nanny or into the loving arms of a relative.
LIFE IS TRAGICALLY SHORT.
