Uncertainty of Life

I am still shocked from what happened last night.  I think shock is an understatement because the accident scared the hell out of me.  It was already 10:00 in the evening but I was still in the road to head back home.  It was raining so hard that night and road was slippery but since there was no traffic the jeepney that I was riding can run as fast as it can.

At first it was okey.  In fact I managed to get some sleep while riding the jeepney because we are packed with people and no room to move around.  The troubles came in when we were already at the highway and we are moving at a very fast speed when suddenly I heard a loud bang and the jeepney that I was riding suddenly lose direction.  We got flat tire while we were on top of our speed and that what makes the scenario worse.  I was just so glad that our driver didn't lost his focus and was managed to full over the jeepney without crashing to the nearest electricity post.  Whew!  I almost seen it!  I thought it was coming but thanks God we didn't because if not then maybe I am sleeping in one of the hospitals here by now or worse, I will be sleeping forever...

It is hard to imagine but life can be as short as that.  As I wrote this and think about what happened, I realized that I still need a lot of things to do.  I was thinking about mom and dad.  I don't want them to get hurt.  I was thinking about Vincent and I asked myself what he would feel if in case something bad really happened.  I know he will be hurt too and I don't want him to feel sad because of me.  I am not ready yet.  I still have so many dreams that I wanted to fulfill but if it is already my time, then who am I to change it.

I don't know what will happen in the next 24 hours but one thing I know that I have to do what I need to do and that is to treat each day as if it is my last.  I need to be cautious, I need to be prepared to whatever things that will happen.  I need to flexible.. I need to be courageous because if not, then what will happen?  Life is just so short, it is so uncertain and so make the most out of it by giving joy to all the people whom you love....
