DAY 14: Three years since the accident

IMG_6818

You hear about people being hit by cars but you never think it would be you…until it is.

I was really busy yesterday, so I didn’t have a chance to post anything but we would just carry on today, if you don’t mind.

Today is November 7th and exactly three years ago, a car ran me over. It is so crazy that it’s three years ago now because I remember everything around that period so clearly. I had written about it around the time it happened, you can check it out here.┬áIt’s so cray because I still can’t believe that it happened to me. You hear about people being hit by cars but you never think it would be you…until it is.

I made it out okay with very minimal injuries and I don’t look back at it with sadness because it’s nothing to be sad about. I got into an accident and I was okay. I’m super grateful to God.

I was telling someone today that life is full of surprises and we need to stop trying to control everything and just appreciate life for all the good it is and isn’t. At least, that’s what I’m trying to do.

Now, getting hit by a car is a very interesting story to tell and I could do it all and give glory to God. So, win-win. Lol

Stress

So, for the past couple of days, I have been feeling really stressed. You know, I had an accident last November (I am much better now, Thank God) and I had to get lawyers to help with the compensation. Since then, the case has just been longer than I anticipated and now that it is coming down to the wire, it has just become a whole lot more stressful.

Even thinking about it makes me tired. I don’t have to go to court or anything but going back and forth between the lawyers and my mum has just been too much for me. Anyway, apart from praying, I decided to look for something that would make me feel a bit better and I came across this quote by Steve Maraboli that shifted my perspective a little bit and I thought I’d share it with you guys.

I promise you nothing is as chaotic as it seems. Nothing is worth diminishing your health. Nothing is worth poisoning yourself into stress, anxiety, and fear.

So, this helped me feel a little better because truly there is so much more to life than for me to sit here stressing over this daily. If you are going through a stressful time, I hope this changes your perspective on it and I am praying for you.

Love,

Dolly xx
