Appreciating Life.

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Today I watched my friend grieve as she buried her husband. I thought wow it's so crazy how one day your here and the next day your not. You know loving myself enough to get healthy is totally about me and what I want. It's just hard when I see a person like Tom fight for his life needing a new heart. Not win that fight and here I complain about doing exercise to protect the one I have. My thought while at the funeral was am I living life or am I so caught up in it that life is living me? Being healthy has to remain my steadfast focus I need to remove myself from contributing to an early death. emoticon

    So sorry for your friend's loss! I remember having pains in my heart before I lost any weight and I am so thankful that God turned me around and gave me the motivation to work on my health! Keep sparking and be blessed!

    My heart goes out to you, your friend and her family. And sounds like you're walking away with exactly what you should when you lose a loved one...because we're all a loved-one to someone and we have to take the steps needed to prolong our life as long as we can. emoticon

    I am sorry! I am also appreciating life tonight after hearing about two people dying much too young from cancer. Great job working to protect and prolong your health! I am working for that, too.
