DO YOU EVEN REALIZE WHAT YOU HAVE?

Do you?


I went to a birthday party yesterday and we camped out in the front yard around a fire and talked and stayed up all night. We talked about tons and tons, but one thing that came up was some people saying how they would rather live in a different time or decade and how you are faced with things like death and all that morbid stuff that makes you feel depressed and forget everything.

Then, i got an email from my mom about one of her old family friends. She has cancer.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING:

"Fuck you cancer, you are not going to run my life, I am. I’m going to do the things I like to do..."

This was said by the writer of the blog One Little Head.

This woman is fighting the dreaded cancer. I don't know her personally, and my mom only has memories of her, but she is a person. She has recently decided to quit chemo and her doctor told her she only has a 1% chance of living.  IMAGINE being told that!

I don't think we realize everything we have and what we could have in the future. She is being told she doesnt have a future. But you do. So don't forget that! When my friends and I were talking about living in a different time or being in the world at the wrong time, I found how stupid that sounded. I don't mean to be mean (especially if one of you friends are reading this) but seriously! We were born in this time, with this life. So stop thinking about everything you don't have, everything you want, and everything you hate. Stop thinking for a while and just LIVE. You have one life. Don't waste it.

At any rate, please visit One Little Head it is not like the fashion blogs you probably read, no pictures, just the truth about a woman diagnosed with cancer.

My mom and I really want to do something nice for her. If you have any suggestions please leave me a comment :D

  2. Thanks for sharing this! I will check out her blog, it's so sad what's happening to her. And it's so true what you said. We always complain about what we don't have instead of being thankful for what we actually have. We need to focus in what's important instead of wasting our time.
    You have a lovely blog!
