As I grow older my eyes are opened wider and wider and yet I wonder if I get wiser and wiser.
This last month Cancer Awareness has hit even closer to home than I thought it had and will. Well at least at this stage of my life. I will be honest not something I was really prepared for, or at least I thought so. ((I think I will leave that discussion for a later date))
I found out about 2 weeks ago that a good friend of mine has cancer. He is younger than me and that was what scared me. While I don’t have that attitude of invincibility I had when I was, oh lets say 17 shall we, I am still hanging on to my youth which in a naïve sort of way does lend to that former mind set.
I am not going to dwell on the issue, other than to say it was caught early and things are extremely positive and hopeful. Plus he does have the threat that if he doesn’t smarten up and stay strong I will kick his ass and I promised it would not be the kind of ass kicking he would enjoy!
Now he, as well as numerous other friends from work, even one that is off somewhere in Asia traveling ((she is planning to take time out from her trek to do the run on her own to show her support)), are going to take part.
I wish I could say I am proud of them but that would be an understatement.
On top of this someone really close to me, that I care a lot about, is involved, in a fashion, with the CIBC Run for the Cure and I want to show my support.
So where does this leave me? Well after thinking about it really hard today, I have decided to take more time and be much more aggressive in achieving my goals.
“Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!”
I have always loved that quote but I have started to realise that it doesn’t just mean to get out there and have fun, it also means that it is important to set your goals, stay on track and achieve. Therein is the reward of satisfaction!
Maybe I am getting wiser?
