…in Trinidad I met someone who wanted to tattoo a symbol of this on his body. He had an interesting and unique view on human existence, believing that we all have infinite beginnings. Some of you may not know, but 3 1/2 years ago my only sibling was killed in a car accident. She was traveling from DC to NY on the I-95, singing along to the radio in a friends car. While the car she was riding in stopped at a toll booth, the car behind kept barreling forward. The driver never hit the breaks – quite literally crashing right into her, completely annihilating the backseat she was sitting in. Infinite beginnings, huh? At first it felt like we both died.
I am personally toying with the idea of heaven, but maybe she’s rocking it up there, traveling to even more glorious places than she visited on Earth. Maybe she has moved up in the caste system and has been born into royalty – although this may not be moving up in her eyes, she already thought she was royalty!
As I type, with tears streaming down my face, I’m realizing how both her life and death have taught me to enjoy the infinite beginnings. I challenge you to do the same. Take a risk, get out of the same old routine, live your dreams, and enjoy every second of it!
