Living to Die or Dying to Live

As I continue through my journey as a cancer survivor, I am thankful to God every day for giving me the opportunity to still be alive today. However, I am still an imperfect human being with all the flaws that entails. Because of this I have caught myself stressing over the smallest of difficulties in my life. Not only do I stress over them but I also spend a considerable amount of time worrying, and complaining about it. I am constantly comparing myself to others and waiting for something bigger and better to come into my life.  At times, my thoughts and decisions are based upon my fears instead of reality.   Thankfully God is always with me and makes me realize that I am fixating into every day difficulties instead of focusing on all the blessings that surround me daily.  Being a cancer survivor, I have to remind myself of how fragile life is and how quickly it can all change or end. With this in mind, I need to re-focus my energy on all the blessings in my life.  I also need to remember that I need to enjoy life and take risks. I need to live a full life without regrets.  I am fully aware that there is a huge difference between living and existing.  We can never know what the future will bring, it will always be an unknown variable and tomorrow is not guaranteed for anyone. Therefore, I need to take all I have learned through my experiences in life and move forward into new adventures.  I need to continue adding chapters to my book of life. I can’t let fear or every day difficulties stop me from reaching my full potential. God gave me a second chance to live and I need to make the best of it. Don’t let fear or every day difficulties stop you from living your life to the fullest. Stop doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. Clear your mind of all the clutter and open your heart to a new path filled with exciting and endless possibilities.
