Seize the Day

Today, we heard the news that 7 people had lost their lives in an horrific accident at Shoreham Airshow. An aircraft performing a display crashed into traffic on the A27 - a fairly local story, and a route my family travel regularly.

It is heartbreaking that a family event on such a beautiful summer day, should end so tragically, and it just shows how fragile life is. The people affected by this terrible accident could have been on their way to the beach, to visit family, going on holiday....any normal everyday event, and in an instant, so many lives have been changed forever.

So, take a lesson from this people. Hug those you care for, now. Tell your nearest and dearest that you love them. Carry out acts of kindness, however small. And don't wait for tomorrow - it may never come. Whatever you want to do, do it now!

Don't make excuses...find solutions. Don't focus on how much you have to do, to get the end result. Just do one small thing that will move you in the right direction. If you take one positive action each day, towards achieving your goals, before you know it, they will have accumulated and become your journey.

So, make your mind up to be positive, be happy and take action towards living the life you want to live.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of those who have been affected by the Shoreham air crash today - God bless you all.
