Life is not guaranteed. Every second is fleeting and could be your last! Feel better about the state of the world? I do.

I'm not here to coddle you, I'm here for truth kids. Danger abounds like mosquitoes in summer. But... there is hope.

We can survive. Everyday we all face insurmountable, life threatening situations, just by crossing the street, or going to Starbucks. And in some instances we survive actual near tragedy.

Who hasn't heard the tales of people walking away from the jaws of life with barely a scratch scratch? It can happen, but often it's rare. So let's discuss them.

I've injured myself so many times in the most innocuous ways, it's a freaking miracle I'm still breathing.

Pain is not gain.... pain is just pain; especially for the sensitive souls out there. However when put into perspective, a toothache is not as excruciating as a knife wound to the abdomen... but it's a close second. We've all survived our fair share of "minor" injuries and we live to tell the tale. We have to be careful accidents and mishaps can happen at the drop of a hat.

P.S.... Paper cuts kill.... spread the word.

When you are but a breath away from the wrong step and certain death, life shifts perspective for you.

Humans sometimes forget that they are mortal and that at any moment, they may face the end of their lives. When confronted with that mortality, people have a hard time fully grasping that. It can cause a full shift in their lives.

And chances are, you'll never forget the incident that almost ended your life.
