It’s been awhile since I’ve written here. One thought, that I’ve had repeatedly come up which is not profound, but important for me and I’ll be keeping it at heart this Fall:
If you are in, be in it completely! Mind. Effort. Spirit. Faith. Do it.
It’s something I try to live by, if you are going to do something, commit to it. Someone said to me this week, oh you do so much, and to me it can sound negative and I get tired of hearing, but I understand some people believe it’s kind to say.
My choice because life isn’t lived on the sidelines. My response, it’s about balance and boundaries with a mix of joy. I’ve mentioned this before, the attitude of get to, instead of have to which my Mom modeled and I’m grateful for. You have an opportunity whether you work for, are presented to you, and you have a choice of how to respond. Thank you to those that keep reminding me to keep living, be present, but honor the balance and boundaries.
I’ll end here, cancer taught me and all those that loved my Mom so much which all the things she lived by proved to be even greater while she battled cancer. If you can’t change something, change your attitude and approach.
