You know, there are times in our lives that we just have to sit back and say WOW! HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? Well, June 9th, that happened to me. I had a HEART ATTACK! I still can't believe it....I just keep saying it to myself, but I really don't know if I truly accept the serious nature of that simple fact. My wife told me (jokingly!!!) "IT HAPPENED! Let's move on." She's right...Can't dwell on this...BUT....I HAD A HEART ATTACK! I waited 7 DAYS to go to the hospital! Can you spell stupid??? J - E - F - F !
What's so bad about this...Now I won't be allowed in the shop for a while because I am on blood thinners, and I can't afford to cut or injure myself....which SUCKS because being in the shop helps me maintain my sweet disposition and super relaxed personality! So, now I am going to become a crusader to stop those STUPID people that have chest pain, shortness of breath, and other serious signs of heart problems, but choose to eat antacids by the handful and blame it all on reflux.
Nope...not going to do that!!! I will not be a downer! Too much negative in the world right now....they don't need me too! I'm just going to start trying to make sure that anyone who's around me won't be sad or depressed. Life is too precious to be dragging everyone down and being gloomy all the time. Let's enjoy God's gift of life...family...friends!!!
So...PERK UP PEOPLE! Get out and enjoy your life. Have some fun, see your family and friends. One thing I realized during this experience...Your life can change with ONE single breath or beat of your heart! Don't be stupid!!!
LOVE, LAUGH, LIVE!!!
Peace & Love
