Christmas Cancer

Christmas Vignette

Today was an eye opener.  While sitting in a hospital waiting room that was adjacent to a cancer center entrance I sat in awe as I watched the parade of people walk into the center.  Some walked alone.  Some had a loved one.  All walked with a purpose.  I witnessed a elderly couple slowly make their way up the ramp using each other for support.  How many years had they been together, loving and caring for each other?  Who was the one needing treatment?  Another couple in their mid 50’s entered and it was clear who the patient was; as she was donning a bandanna to hide the affects of chemotherapy likely.  But they were both there; one to fight and the other for love and support. This was 2 days before Christmas.  I wondered; did they know or care it was Christmas or was it just another day in the fight to live?

The emotional parade continued and reminded me how thankful some of us are.  Especially during this season with family and friends.  We sometimes take ourselves, our status in life, our health and those we love for granted.  And, sometimes it takes something so wrong, as cancer, to set the perspective compass on the right course.  Perhaps, in a tragically fortunate way these Christmas Cancer patients have learned a lesson about life; to Own it, Live it and Love it; for tomorrow is never guaranteed.

May you have a Happy, Healthy and Merry Christmas!

Stop Thinking & Start Doing…

 

Stop Thinking & Start Doing

Have you been contemplating going out to meet an old friend?  Buying tickets to see a play?  Has a friend suggested a neighborhood cookout that you’re considering?  Going for a walk, skydiving, trying a new restaurant, volunteering?  The list is endless and so are the possibilites. 

The world offers us opportunities on a daily basis.  We just have to be open to hearing them and acting on them.    If there is anything we hope you’re realizing, is tomorrow is never guaranteed.  Let’s have some fun today…right NOW.  Don’t think – Do.

When asked to participate in these things we should all be saying…

LiFE is NOW…™ Let’s do it!

Visit the store to get your apparel.  It’s super soft, comfortable. Remember LiFE is NOW…™ don’t think – do… go get some!

Procrastination and teenagers; lessons learned

Don't let your "I wills"
 

As you know, we here at LiFE is NOW…promote a call to action lifestyle.  Tomorrow is never guaranteed, etc. and when it comes to teenagers we can learn a little something from them.

The first is their impulsive mentality of wanting it right now despite the consequences or the cost.  They see something they like and they move to acquire it.  No thought process.  Just need it now.  Seems as though as we age this impulsivity diminishes by the minute and we begin to question our decisions and our thoughts rather than moving with our gut instinct.  Maybe it’s the fear of getting caught or the image that a mature adult would not do such things.  But maybe, just maybe, if we followed the teenagers thinking process we’d have a little more fun and a lot less stress.

The second is something we feel maybe we shouldn’t follow so closely and that is the teenager’s birth rite to procrastinate and put things off until tomorrow (which as we know…..is not guaranteed….).  How many times have you heard a teenager say “I will” in response to a request to do something?  We all know that like most people, if it’s not exciting and interesting teenagers will postpone until perhaps it goes away.  But there is a lesson to be learned from this “I will” response and that is simply that if tomorrow shows up the “I will” has miraculously transformed itself into “I was gonna”.  This holds true for fun things as well that a teenager may postpone and therefore “misses out” on something cool.  So take a lesson from a teenager, eliminate regrets and don’t wait for tomorrow.  Don’t assume you will always be healthy, active and able to do all the things you want to.  Yes, tomorrow may come but you may not be ready or able.

Remember LiFE is NOW… Don’t let your “I will” turn into “I was gonna”.
