Blog — The Battle We Didn't Choose

 "Jen’s death has pushed me to accept that one day I will die. It is inevitable. I am not saying that I am not afraid of death, but by accepting my own mortality I have embraced that I am alive. I am healthy. I have a roof over my head. I am loved and able to love. 

I don't mean to sound idealistic and I know that life is not always great. I watched the woman of my dreams take her last breath. It was on me. There are definitely days when I want to stay under the covers. 
But I am still alive. I want to embrace every moment and search with all of my heart for something in every day that makes me smile. This may be something as simple as the sound of my cats purring or the smell of a spring breeze. I will not take life for granted."
