Is Dying Failure?
What it feels like to face mortality when it staring you right in the face?
What Get's You Out of Bed?
Not having work be my purpose for getting out of bed each morning, I wondered what exactly was getting me up and going each morning.
Have you buried your grief, only to find that the ghost of grief still haunts you? Grief emerged as an issue for me during a guided meditation.
It's Not Personal
Many people were as surprised about me being diagnosed with cancer as I was. Perhaps it was because if it could happen to me, it could happen to them. That was how I felt by the death of Laura Harris. She was just fifty-three (my age now). She was active and outgoing. It was her death almost 12 years ago, that taught me not to wait to live life. She also taught me to swim better, helping me to make it through the 1.5 km half-ironman swim. How does someone not take cancer personally, when it has so much potential to lead to death?
