30 Days of Green Smoothies: Day 21

What a crazy day!  Here in the Midwest, we had some crazy storms blow through town and it kind of shook everything up around here.  While we suffered minimal water damage, our street flooded, nearby cars were swept away only to be abandoned, and for a moment I thought I would need a boat to cross my backyard!

Some of my neighbors were not as lucky as us.  I heard stories about water in basements and 4 hour bucket details for living room floods.  As I took my dog for a walk I saw limbs down, neighbors out assessing the damage, and a few still carrying buckets of water out to the street.

Tough events like this always snap me into a very philosophical mood.  Perhaps its the overwhelming gratitude for my own safety and luck or the inability to comprehend why the guy 3 doors down has to suffer while I sit here and type?  Life truly is unpredictable and we MUST enjoy and live every moment as if it were our last.

I don’t believe that means going streaking or climbing Everest.  I believe that it means being true to yourself at ALL times.  It means doing something to bring about good everyday.  Trying your best because you may not get a second chance.  Thinking before speaking/acting because there are no rewind buttons in life.  Getting up each day and living the life we know we are intended to live.

Cheers to you and your life!
