One of my quotes to live by:
"Worse things have happened to better people"
It can always be much worse........enjoy life, find a way, focus on yourself, kids, family. Here is anothe quote I live by:
"Life is like a coin you can spend it anyway you want, but you can only spend it once"
Life is too short do what makes you happy. I always think of Samantha when life get's hard. She isn't family not even a friend. She was young girl who worked at the UPS store. Over the course of 1 month I shipped alot of parts across the US and she was often the person working. Samantha was a small girl 5 foot probably 105lbs and one day we were talking about high blood pressure. I had just started on pills.........go figure....stupid gentics since I eat healthy, exercise, and am by most peoples measure "In shape".
She said "Yeah I have that"? At 20 I said. She said I have diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis too...with a smile. Wow!! That sucks.........she went on to say she has spent 7 years of her life in and out of Children's Hospital fighting cancers, but that she was currently in remission for how long though she did not know :-( She says about every 1-2 years since she was 9 she has been fighting it. All of the chemo has given her some crappy permanent side affects.
We talked for a bit longer and I saw her a few more times after that. Recently I stopped in to drop off a package and asked how she was......the person there sadi "She is now back in the hospital and it doesn't look good!!"
Life isn't fair and as long as you have your health go get out there and live!! Don't let people ruin YOUR LIFE!
