As God in his own wisdom left me on this earth, after a cancer diagnosis, at times I have questioned their passing. I would later realized that I survived breast cancer because He wanted me to live. There are many people living ‘dead lives’ and they are afraid of dying. In some cases they are afraid of living. I am not one of them. I never ever take living for granted. It’s a privilege to be on this journey.
The reason we were all put on this earth is to live. Not just to live but to live our best lives. Not many of us are aware of this. It is ok to mourn the passing of a loved one, a friend or a relative, but it is not ok to stop living while we are alive. Ask yourself; “Are you happy with the life you are living?”
We are put on this earth to live our best lives and to grab happiness by the hand everyday. In this life,we will all experience sadness. You can be a happy person and experience sadness, but it is very important that we choose to be happy daily. It’s a choice!
One thing is for sure, we are all going to die. The sad thing is we don’t all live while our bodies are alive. When you are truly happy, you are truly living. When you feel unhappy daily, you are already dead. It’s ok to mourn the loss of someone who have transitioned, but it is more important to appreciate the time with those who are left behind.
Even if you are healthy, tomorrow is not promised. We live with the false sense of security that we have to be diagnosed with an illness to die. The key is to focus daily on living our best lives. Focus of maintaining happiness, and doing whatever puts a smile on your face.
Rest In Paradise my friend. You are truly happy now.
