Sometimes it takes an unfortunate event to make you realize there is so much more to life than the little things we all worry about.
Today I found out that a very sweet student that I was in contact with this year passed away suddenly on Sunday June 24th. He was only 25 years old and from what I experienced, a very genuine and hard working young man. His name is David Wood and he remains in the hearts of all who knew him.
I feel so selfish. While I was stressing over stupid insignificant things in my life today and yesterday, a young man's family was mourning over an uncessary loss.
This was a rude wake-up call for me. I wish his family support and strength in this tough time I will also stop worrying about little things and remember to count my blessings. I'm glad I have my health and the love of many around me. That's what is most important. Not books, not papers, not exams, not working out, not eating, nothing.
Take a moment to reflect on all the good you have in your life. It will make your worries seem so unimportant.
