Last night as I was driving back from NY, I experienced my first face-on accident. I don’t want to bore with details but it is enough to say that all involved were and are safe (except for my body feeling a little banged up).
This is one of those situations where the worse could have easily happened.
My night was long, but when I got home at around 2am, something happened. I began wondering, as I suspect most people do when in accidents, why am I here? And why was I out late to begin with?
I thought about that while I was sitting outside when I got home…asking where did your feet take you tonight and was it worth it?
My close friends were renewing their 10years-and-running wedding vows. “The boys” had a good reason to connect. Plus, seeing a marriage make it through the ups and downs for 10years is special and being around the people that made it happen is priceless. So was it worth it? Absolutely.
As I sat outside til late-early morning, I began saying, “I’m not done yet! I have something to do! My journey will not be taken from me!”
I experienced the hope of a dream, screaming out for existence. Have you ever heard your dream talk to your circumstances or to you? This was the first time I have ever experienced something like that.
Recently, someone asked me why I blog, record audio and why I have a dvd of my first comedy routine. My answer…Because you can’t kill what can’t die – word. And I can’t not do it because I feel like I’m not that good. I must use what I have. Every time I speak, I speak from my heart…It is the thing that I would die for.
What would I want to say if I had a chance to speak? What would I want others to know? This is why I blog, record audio and the like. So that just in case, God forbid, an accident takes my life, you see what’s left and what I didn’t want to die with me.
So until then, let me walk back into my apartment and stay on path with my faith and my hopes. (Joshua 24:15)
Have you found your personal journey yet? Have you found what you would die for? Have you found what makes you alive?
