LIFE: TAKE-IT!

“Life is but a gift” Before you roll your eyes and tune out, please don’t! I know it’s clichéd and in this world of short attention spans that’s a no-no, but bear with me!There’s no easy way to say this: a close young (34 years old, I believe) friend of a family member has been diagnosed with stage 2 terminal pancreatic and liver cancer. Upon visiting his doctor 3 weeks ago with generalized pain, within 2 days the doctor asked him to get his financial affairs in order as he had but weeks to months to live. He is the proud father of a one year old daughter. I share this with you because it has been in my life’s forefront for the last few weeks, and I always write about what is important and very present to me.

I tell you this to use it as a backdrop for a few points I keep wrestling with myself.

  1. The first issue is obviously about living our lives in every moment as if this day was a gift and definitely not to be taken for granted but that one is obvious.
  2. Secondly, we were only given one body for this life. It has to last us for the whole journey and be as trouble free as possible so we can enjoy the years with full vitality and power. Sadly, most people treat their bodies very poorly, packing them with unhealthy food, sedentary movement habits (the body does best in motion) and worst perhaps of all is stress (external and self-created)
  3. Take chances and do the things you know you will regret if you don’t do them. Don’t live in a safe, “everyday is the same, let’s play it safe” bubble, you and the world deserve better.
  4. Do not ever give more than passing credence to what a health practitioner tells you about your health. Yes, they are experts on disease, but no they don’t know you, how you heal, etc. I believe what the doctor above said to the patient to be literally criminal. As smart as doctors are, what they give you is an informed opinion but not the truth. So many people have had “terminal” diagnoses and decided to focus and visualize on how their bodies were destroying invaders. It is now being taught to young doctors, don’t wait until yours gets the (late) memo. Once you accept someone else’s vision of your life, your subconscious makes it real and brings it.

To this young man I wish all the best and a “miraculous” (to science anyway) complete and full recovery, join me in sending your positive vibes!

That is all.
