The past few weeks my friend has been out of work a lot and attending some doctor's appointments. I assumed it was for her back and didn't get around to asking her what was up. She finally came to me and told me she was diagnosed with breast cancer. It hit me like a ton of bricks. Early last year my step mom was also diagnosed with breast cancer and made a full recovery thanks to early detection. (My friend will be ok too, she caught it really early) My step dad died of cancer, same with my Grandma. I feel like it grabs hold of everyone you know, no matter what their circumstances are.
It just made me think ... you've got to live the life you've been given. You only get one life. You only get this one chance to live your best life possible.
That was it, my word for 2014.
I only get one chance, so this year I'm going to live.
Linking up for Funday Monday
