I want to move forward but I want to leave all the baggage, the sickness, the dis-ease and the disappointment behind. I have a friend who has been saying that as soon as she quits her job the saints will come marching in and she will be happy. That was 5 years ago and she is still at the same job. So does that mean that she has been unhappy for 5 years?
I don’t know. Just trying to make a point.
We all know that person that says “as soon as such and such happens…my life will change”. Well I am that person depending on what day you catch me. “As soon as I am healed I’m gonna do such and such.” What you gonna do then that you can’t do now Karen?
Yes. I am talking to myself in the midst of talking to you.
What I am realizing is that I must learn to live with, through and beside my health and other challenges. Dis-ease just doesn’t go away one day and health appear the next. They work in tandem. Doing a dance together and depending on the work you put in, one or the other will dominate.
This month I challenged myself. I entered a Hack Cancer / STD Hackathon and our team was the runner up. I will share more on this soon. I run my first 5K on Saturday and life has been continuing to happen in both awesome and challenging ways everyday. Sometimes I hurt. Sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I am super productive. Sometimes I can barely do anything.
Life is too short to be waiting for something to happen before you make something else happen. Next month I will announce the launch of my record label, HealingATL as I continue to push myself…through the stages.
