New mom and actress, Tamera Mowry-Housley recently utilized her blog, Tia and Tamera Official, which she shares with her twin sister to discuss the close call car accident that changed her life. Although Tamera was not actually involved in the accident, she says it helped her to realize how short life is. In addition to sharing her experience, she urged the site’s readers to seize the moment and live life freely. Check out her post below.
“The other day, Adam, Aden and I had a brush with a very scary situation. We were driving along on the highway, when all of a sudden the car in front of us crashed into the car in front of it. We watched in horror as the car flipped over and over and over again on the highway. It was terrifying…I still get chills now just thinking about it. Our life really flashed right before our eyes. We were the next car in the accident that had a car flipping more than once straight ahead of us across the freeway! Although the moment goes so fast, you actually feel like you are moving in slow motion. All I could think about was protecting our new son Aden. Once we got out of our car and helped the victims, I just held our lil baby and cried.
I was grateful for my lovely family and realized the fact that life is too short. Life is too short to not do what you have set your heart out to do. Life is too short to hold any grudges. Life is short, and life is beautiful. To have the gift of life is a blessing. Many die daily and if you are alive right now, then you have been given that gift. It’s important we live it to the fullest and not get stuck or preoccupied with the worries, fears or pain. Instead, all we can do is trust in God and live every day He’s given me to the very fullest.
Ladies, let me ask you: What is holding you back from living freely, loving fiercely and pursuing your dreams? We should all treasure every moment we have in this fleeting life and take every opportunity to pursue our passions. Life is too short put things off.
You can do anything you put your mind to, and today is the day to start making your dreams happen. I believe in all of you!
Live, breathe, love, help, give, and smell the frickin’ roses.
What is a passion you have that you’ve been scared of pursuing? A grudge against someone that you want to let go of?”
What do you think of Tamera’s “epiphany”?
