Happy (belated) Easter everyone! Our Easter holidays began with a car accident. Our very first and hopefully our very last. Luckily it looks like injuries to all are mostly minor (we are both fine) but I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I have never been so scared in my entire life. So Easter was officially cancelled for us and Jordan and I spent most of the weekend in a haze of shock and worry. If you can take one positive thing from a car accident (and boy that is difficult to do) it’s that every other stupid thing you have ever worried about, suddenly seems utterly trivial. The transition to a new country has been exceptionally hard for us but after some deep reflection, Jordan and I both agreed that we were slowly falling into the category of being those moany ungratefuls. Noisy neighbours, tiring commutes to work, long work days, empty bank accounts – subjects of my recent tirades - all pale in comparison to getting seriously hurt or losing a life. As much as car accidents (as well as life’s other unpredictables) truly suck, sometimes you need a little perspective. A little reminder that actually, your life is pretty sweet. You are lucky, healthy, blessed, alive – go and make the most of it.
