So there I was heading to meet a friend one evening. I was just going along with life. The road near theirs is a bit dodgy to cross so I waited to cross on the pedestrian pavement, picture below. Then out of know where a red bus drove onto the pavement and nearly hit me. This shit me up!! I was in a bit of shock for a while after, I kept thinking, 'FUCK that was close!!!"
Gradually I recalled all the close calls I have previously had with death, and realised 'the fragility of life!!'
I now see this experience as a positive thing, because it puts things into perspective, and makes me appreciate the small things in life so much more! Everything that happens from that day forward is a blessing. It also highlights how fragile animals lives are too, and how quickly humans end their lives unnecessarily.
That bus has also inspired me to send a message to people to "Go for it". By this if there is something you really would like to do, or say then "Go for it", as our lives can be taken away in the time it takes a bus to drive past. The condition of this message is that it does not cause harm or suffering to another being.
So "GO FOR IT"!!
*Note - I'm in the middle of making a short video about that day and the bus, so watch this space for a fresh video.
My name is Berty Justice and Im going to write things here. If you like life from another angle, you'll like this!
