RIP Donny K

On Sunday morning I woke to some bad news… One of my old bosses of nine and a half years had passed away. Some people have facebooked their thoughts but this is my venue. He was not only my boss but a good friend. Completely unexpected. He went to sleep on Friday night and did not wake up. We were meant to catch up last weekend but I postponed it for other reasons. Now I feel bad. I missed my chance. We were then meant to see each other next weekend but….. But I look at the silver lining that as he wasn’t catching up with me he took the time to see his brother who he said he hadn’t seen in years. It’s more important that his brother got the chance to see him than me. He was a month away from his 60th. Still too young. Especially considering he ran on the beach every morning and marathons. I don’t want this blog to be depressing but more of a reality check. You never know when your time is up. And in some cases you aren’t given the opportunity to say goodbye. When I got the news I made sure I spoke to my sister and called my parents just to tell them that I loved them. I am organizing nights to see good friends who I haven’t seen since I left JSR.
Don’t let opportunities pass you by because you are scared of what might happen. Scared of what might not happen. Scared of differences. Life is full of risks... I guess that is what life is all about. What if that one thing you turned away from could have been the best thing for you? Do you want to spend the rest of your life wondering or regretting it? As we all know on here Love & Life hurts us at one point or another. But it’s the fact that we pick ourselves up and continue on that journey. And we may get knocked down many times but eventually we will find happiness. We just have to be open to it….
RIP Donny K….
