We all tend to hear that life is short so we should make the most of it. What’s interesting is that you don’t really connect these words of wisdom with personal emotion or even translate them with action until something significant teaches us personally.
I’ve recently had a loved one become diagnosed with cancer and it’s my first time navigating some seriously heavy and aggressive emotions. In this process I’ve been able to truly reflect on “words of wisdom” from our elders.
There really is no bullshit to words of wisdom, so in my reflection I’d say, “stay positive”; “wake up each day & appreciate life”; “enjoy the ride” “Don’t have any regrets” and be “happy”.Anonymous
