Decide to Live

I've been having really bad days lately, my car broke down when I was on my way to teach dance class, work's getting on me, and I've been feeling a bit down thanks to PMS. When I arrived home the other night from work, I got a call telling me that a friend just passed away. Someone I met in college and hung out with during breaks, committed suicide.

It came to me in an instant, that there are bigger problems in this world. There are people who are experiencing more difficult situations than I am. I realized that I'm being such a drama queen. I felt so shocked and confused as to why someone would decide to end their life just like that. So many thoughts are going through my head right now, but I can't type a thing.

I guess the question should be, "Why did you decide to live today?"
We all have our reasons, our family, friends, work, dreams.
Whatever it is, hold on to your reasons. LIVE everyday knowing that life is such a blessing. LIVE for the people who love and care about you. LIVE for the One who GAVE you life.
Do me a favor? Decide to live today.

Rest in peace, Macky.
