I LOVED the voiceovers of the two episodes which were the Grey’s Anatomy finale. So much, that I just want to recite them here. As they don’t contain spoilers (expect for maybe indicating the atmosphere of the episodes) I think it’s safe to not put them behind a cut.
5.23 – Here’s To The Future
When something begins you generally have no idea how it’s going to end. The house you were going to sell becomes your home. The roommates you were forced to take in become your family. And the one-night-stand you were determined to forget becomes the love of your life.
We spend our whole lifes, worrying about the future. Planning for the future. Trying to predict the future. As if figuring it out would somehow cushion the blow. But the future is always changing. The future is the home of our deepest fears and our wildest hopes. But one thing is certain: When it finally reveals itself, the future is never the way we imagined it.
5.24 – Now or Never
Doctors spend a lot of time focused on the future. Planning it. Working toward it. But at some point you start to realize: Your life is happening now. Not after med-school. Not after residency. Right now. This is it. It’s here. Blink and you’ll miss it.
Did you say it? “I love you.” – “I don’t ever want to live without you.” – “You changed my life.” Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it. But every now and then, look around. Drink it in. Cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow.
Isn’t that just so so true? We should remember that every day of our lifes. At least I’m trying to from now on, because I know I forget about it too often.
