As you look back at all the changes in your personal and professional life since the trauma you were involved in, are any of the changes positive? This week, share stories and photos about any good, positive, healthy or beneficial things that came about as a result of being involved in a tragic event.
I think I have actually gained more positive from my accident than negative. I learned a lot from it and I am a better driver because of it. I pay more attention to the little things because it is the little things that will compound and turn into a big thing. I no longer worry about load counts or parking in inclement weather or what other drivers will say or think. I no longer care about being the best. I care about being MY best and if that means being a bit slower or letting another truck go by oh well. I still work hard but now I play hard too. I take time to do the things I enjoy and have learned to “work to live” instead of “live to work”. I’ve realized that there needs to be a balance to life. It can’t be all work and death and you can’t count on retirement because it may never come. For the most part, I have found the balance in my life.
