I’ve been procrastinating on this blog for a long time. I have a lot of ideas about what I want to write about. I have very little energy and time in which to write them. And so I procrastinate.
This week I received bad news from two friends. One – a mother of two minor children, a coworker and friend to me – was diagnosed with cancer. Another – an older retired friend – found out his cancer has returned for a second time in a more aggressive form. Both of these people are what I’d call extremely ambitious and hard working. Both are spiritual. Both make healthy choices in their lives. This is just so unfair.
Honestly, it sends a chill down my spine to think that this could just as easily happen to me. And if it did, how would I cope? How would my family cope? If the worst were to happen, would I have regrets?
While I am reminded of how unfair life can be, I am also reminded that we have no one to blame but ourselves if we don’t accomplish our goals. And one of my goals has been to write – to blog – even if no one is listening. Writing brings me joy. It brings a feeling of calmness and a sense of accomplishment to my life. So here I am. Writing. I hope someone out there is reading this, but if not I will enjoy the process anyway.
Hugs, my friends!
