Cancer is a disease that affects us all………

We all as Humans within this Society, have in some way or another, been affected by this dreadful disease of Cancer, we have known someone or we ourselves have had this disease.

With all this technology of today, it seems like this dreadful disease has stricken even more than throughout the history of Mankind, this Cancer can strike us in many ways and it’s not limited to any certain way of affecting us, you would think with all the great minds out there working on this dreadful disease, just maybe they would have a cure for it? Maybe this disease isn’t meant to be cured? Maybe this disease is only meant for us to better understand it? Showing us that we are not perfect and this journey called life, will throw anything at us around each corner we turn.

With the recent passing of Stuart Scott, who was an Anchor for ESPN, on the sports news show of Sports Center and his recent award for the perseverance person of the year at the Espy awards, just might show others that it’s not about the Cancer, but the way you live while you have been stricken by this dreadful disease, attitude through anything that may come across our paths of our journey of life, is and always will be the key¬† for all of us and Stuart Scott showed us that, through his battle from this dreadful disease.

Cancer of any kind is not pretty and the loss of my Uncle from Colon Cancer, showed me just that, he was my Mentor and taught me how to be successful at Ten pin bowling, as he was very successful himself and a very good Bowler, I still think of him as I truly miss his lessons, as we would spend a whole day in the alley’s when he would come visit.

Cancer is not pretty, it also affects each of us, whether you have it or not, we can either let the Cancer win, by not battling it and living our lives in a way of feeling sorry for ourselves, or we can take the Stuart Scott approach and beat this disease with a great attitude, not stopping and truly living our lives showing the respect and dignity of ourselves, towards all that is around us so others can live with that same respect and dignity, which will spread throughout Society and create a stronger and better Society, for all of us to walk our paths along our journey of life.

” Cancer is a dreadful disease that affects us all, we don’t have to let it beat us by putting ourselves in a sour attitude”

” having a great attitude along our journey of life, will always make our journey well worth the trip”

” We can either get busy living, or we can get busy dieing, the choice is for us all along our journey of life”

Get busy living, or get busy dying………..

As I watched the Espy awards last night, for those that don’t know? The Espy’s are awards by ESPN, voted on by us the fans of the sports, but as I watched and saw one of their own sports anchor’s get a Persaverence award, for his fight with cancer, he had been fighting this for seven years and I never knew of his fight, really got me thinking of life in genral.
The sports Anchor is Stuart Scott and he has been with ESPN for as long as I can remember, Kiefer Sutherland alias Jack Bauer of the series “24” introduced him to the stage, when he came to the stage and gave his speech, there was not a dry eye in the place, including me at home, it was strong and powerful, his quote pretty much says it all “you beat cancer by how you live, while you live”.
Watching this last night got me thinking of life in genral, we all walk a path in life on our Journey of life, there is no perfect path, nor is there any path without the bumps and the bruises, we all go through different life events, some more extreme than others, it is us as Humans that determine how these life events affect us, we can take the Stuart Scott approach and keep moving forward, while we fight through it and maybe beat the cancer totally, or we can just simply give up, to which we just lay there til we have taken our last breathe?
Some of us may not even fight, because our thoughts and our minds become so clouded, that we doubt even ourselves, we think that no matter what we are dying, so whats the use in trying to continue with life as I saw it and just wander til the day comes, when things happen to us as Humans and they will, part of life and what makes us stronger and better, is how we persevere and fight through the trouble times, life is very precious to each of us, we only get one shot at it, which is why we need to do it right with the life we are given and is why all our lives are well worth the fight.
When we stay true to ourselves even through the darkest times, we will find being true to each other will come with no effort, we will also find that being true to ourselves and acknowledge God in our lives, we will feel him in our hearts and our souls, as he guides us along our Journey of Life, it is when we lose this feeling, that the doubt enters our lives and we become lost in the clouds within our minds, which leads us to aimless wandering throughout our lives, which is why it’s more important for truely being who we are and walking our Journey through life with confidence, so we can be better and stronger moving forward.

” We can get busy living, or we can get busy dying, the choice is our’s to make”

” Staying true to ourselves will help us see clearly, anything that may cross our paths, along our Journey of life”
