Enjoying Life

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

I work as a nurse in an outpatient cancer center. "I get it," I say. You've got to appreciate the little things, seize the moment, enjoy life. It's a lesson I learn daily from the people that cross my path. More than once I've had a patient tell me that every day is a gift. I get it.

And yet....

The recent unexpected death of a co-worker has prompted me to wonder if I'm just paying lip service to a wonderful concept. How often do I let some minor irritation darken my mood? Or get in too big of a hurry to stop and smell the proverbial roses?

Many years ago, as I was dutifully going about my various nursing tasks, a man named Gregg gave me some advice that I must continue to remember. "Cyndi," he said "don't put off doing what you want to do. Because you just never know, you know?"

I know what I want to do. I want to enjoy my life. And I'd like to think that focusing on being healthy is one step in that direction.
