  Whoa! I'm officially a foodie grub (hopefully just for a week though). So for my recent posts, I will be ditching the day-to-day count for a while.

My Close Shave With Death

Myth -> You only live once?
Truth -> You live everyday, you only die once.

This definitely resonates with me. I had a close experience to losing someone dear to me this weekend. In that moment when I started to think about what to do, I realised how helpless I was. Most importantly, I realised how it’s been easier to chase empty shadows than impact meaningfully. Instantly, nothing else mattered, work, church, anger, money, etc.

I quickly dropped everything else that seemed important, and took time out to spend with my dear dad (I’ll write about that shortly). I couldn’t bear the thought of losing him, but I quickly realised life is much more than moving through.

Life is living, and living is about people!

Please read and enjoy my cousin’s post on her close shave with death. I’m grateful for the victory over death. Halleluyah!
