Fear is something that keeps a lot of people from living life in my opinion, we all have things thrown into our laps that we did not plan on and we learn to deal with them, as we get older we lose the abilities we had when we were younger and gain a whole lot more aches and pains, conditions and diseases invade our little world and it scares us to death thinking of where they are leading us.
Death is inevitable and will come to all of us at the given time, I think we are all predestined to die at a certain time but as you know we have no way of knowing when that will be, Doctors sometimes give people a length of time they have left to live when faced with Cancers, my step Dad was given six months to live and it was three years later when it was his time, a very good friend of mine was diagnosed and given two to three years and it was less than six months when he left us so you never know and no one can predict something like this.
Not wanting this to be a downer post and I will get to my point, my Step Dad continued to live life in a normal manner you know about as normal as you can when facing something like this and he continued doing what he could and gave up doing things as his body slowed him down, my friend kind of gave up he did continue doing what he could but I saw a fear in his eyes he never had before and this fear stopped him in his tracks. Both I think went just when they were supposed to but the quality of living life was sure different because I saw fear of what was coming in one and doing as much as he could while he could in the other.
I was diagnosed with Type One Diabetes when I was fifteen and then the Doctors said I would be lucky to live through my twenties, I have heart trouble in my family although I have never been diagnosed with any heart problems a lot of the men in my family died at the age of forty two, I have now lived through my twenties and next month the fearful forties will be behind me, why did I beat the odds? Simply because it wasn’t my time yet is the answer.
How hard would my life be had I sat back waiting to die in my twenties or my whole forty second year of life, it would have sucked and I’m not one who wants to sit back and worry about when my time will be, so here is where I get to the point I have been dragging out. Don’t allow your life to Suck.
Enjoy life to the fullest without fear of what may happen because if it is going to happen it will be there whether you are out playing or hiding under the covers, if fear is going to consume you then life will surely pass you by before you know it, I would rather be out somewhere doing something I like when my time comes rather than hiding somewhere in a dark room when the Grim Reaper comes calling.
He may get me at just my proper time but I wont go down without a fight, and I will be smiling in his face the whole time.
