“A few years ago I had a near death experience. It was an extremely difficult time but it’s the best thing that has ever happened to me.
Why is that?”
“When you are so close to dying your entire outlook on life changes. I now realize how precious life is. I have learned to enjoy the small things and care less about things that don’t really matter. I used to be an introvert person. Now my fears do not determine who I am anymore.”
“What do you do different now?”
“I have always loved to sing but before the accident I only dared to sing in a choir. There nobody could hear or see me perform. Now I started vocal training to become a solo singer and I’m even recording an album. If you had told me last year I would be doing this, I wouldn’t have believed you.”
