The question I get asked over and over again is “how do you manage to stay so positive?”
Increasingly I believe it’s because I stay so busy, I don’t allow myself to stop and think about the reality…
I don’t let the words ‘stage four’, and everything that really means, sink in to my consciousness.
I just take each day at a time and try simply do my best.
Is this a state of denial? Perhaps but I don’t think so. I mean I have moments of realisation so debilitating I can’t move. Moments of panic so strong I can’t breath. The thought of my life being over is never far away. The promise of tomorrow never taken for granted.
However, I’m not sad or depressed. My life is not consumed by these moments but rather punctuated by them. They are little reminders of my mortality and with them they bring gratitude for each day, for each moment of joy and for each breath I take.
These emotions don’t remove my positivity but rather highlight its importantance.
How do I stay so positive shouldn’t be the question…but rather why do I stay so positive?
The answer to that question is much more straightforward.
I stay positive because I know better than most how precious life is.
I know how important it is that we never take a single moment for granted.
I know how valuable each breath we take truly is.
Life is a gift. It’s the greatest gift of all.
Life you life in a way that doesn’t take thingyft for granted.
Enjoy each moment and love with all of your heart. Because, quote simply, none of us are promised tomorrow. We are all mortal. We are all ‘terminal’.
Make today count.
Make today a positive day.
Live well. Laugh often. Love much.
It’s that simple.
Love and light, Fi xxx
