I KNOW ~ but: LIVE!!!!

Just like everybody else, I have worries, anxieties, irritations, frustrations, well as joy, happiness and love in my life.  I am lucky - in many ways.  Others have experienced, and are currently facing, challenges, losses, and struggles that I can only imagine.  Some are only just now embarking on the frightening and complex melanoma journey I, along with many others, have been living for over 13 years.

But, that's the thing, isn't it?  LIVING!!!!  No matter how sucky and miserable and painful your day may be - it is a day.  And we are not blessed with that matter who we are. So, the advice I give myself is:  LIVE!!!

"Begin doing what you want to do now.  We are not living in eternity.  We have only the moment.  Sparkling like a star in our hand - and melting like a snowflake."  ~  Francis Bacon, Sr.

Blessings and love to you all.  LIVE! - c
