I went to see "If i stay" at the cinema last night. For those of you that don't know what it is, it's a movie about a young girl whose life changes forever when she's in a car accident with her family which leaves her in a coma. During an out of body experience she has to decide whether she lives and wakes up to a very different life or dies.
It's a really good, emotional, very thought provoking film.
I walked away from the film realising how much we have to appreciate in life and how quickly it can all be taken away from us. I can't imagine the pain of losing your family but the thought of not having appreciated them enough, almost hurts more. It made me realise that as a species we take everything we have for granted, wether it be clean water, shelter, friends or family. There's a lot we will never really understand the value of until we lose it.
I guess the point of this post is to make sure you appreciate at least one thing today that you would normally take for granted. Appreciate the fact that you have a family, that you have good health or that you get to go to school. Whatever it may be!
And if you haven't, go and see "If i stay". It's a brilliant movie.
