Cheers to the Third Life!

Don’t waste your life away. Be thankful you have a life. Live it, love it, be it.

-Mikee Cane

I’ve had a few near-death experiences and I’ve had one recently. This one, though, was the worst but the most blessed. The struggle is real.

I felt my body was too tired and so wanting to give up and fall but my spirit kept on fighting. My spirit kept on fighting- fighting to live and I was crying. Crying to my heart’s content. Like I didn’t know where it came from but I cried so much and felt my right arm’s getting numb and my upper lips numb and cold, too.

I was panting and it was so hard to breathe. I was crying and I kept on saying I still wanna live. I wanna live. I don’t wanna die.

And I feel so weak and ready to black out.

God is so good, as always. He never left me. Nanay was there, she helped me got through it. She revived me like she did to others. And as always, she’s the one who helped me and the rest of the family.

I was never sent to the hospital as we didn’t have the time but thankfully things have been better after.

It is true, that no one will help you and be there for you except family. Apparently not the bio family for me but the family who was there when I was in a dark pit many years ago. I didn’t just realized my purpose but to give a lil more love, and respect not to others but for myself, too. I need to be strong not just spiritually, emotionally but physically as well. I have a lot of things to do and accomplish yet, and to be able to do it, I gotta have a healthy physical and emotional self. Thank you God for this extra life You bestowed me. I will cherish and savour every bits of it and serve You and Your servants all the more. 🙂

This is not something to be proud of but a reminder for me and to every one of us that life is to precious to waste.

We only got one life, and not every one gets a chance for extension or a chance to get another life. From this day, I have to look after myself more. I wanna help and inspire others, to be able to inspire, I gotta take care of myself, too. So yep. One day at a time.

I will write more, will express myself more, will help and will give more.

Cheers to the third life! To God be the glory!

  1. Or, as they say in the movie I just watched, “Is the wind still rising?” If so, then you keep on living til it’s taken from you. Maybe all of us are like airplanes (in the movie), beautiful curses (or cursed beauty).

    I am curious what tragedy befell you. I am going to guess weather was involved.


    1. And, I am glad you are okay. But, I think you are wrong when you say only family will help you…unless you group every kind soul you encounter into that title. Because, like you, the bio family may not be the most reliable. Which is sad. But, I am sure there are and will be those outside of family that will leave me in awe some day…and plenty of others who will likely disappoint me.
