Another Day Of Life

 

“Life is fragile. We’re not guaranteed a tomorrow so give it everything you’ve got.”

Tom Cook

This really hit home when I heard the news about Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter and 7 other people who were tragically killed in a helicopter accident.  Then, the very next day was the Holocaust Remembrance Day, which is near and dear to my heart because both my parents were survivors of this horrific time in history, where many members of my family were killed, along with countless others.

It really made me think of how life isn’t guaranteed to anyone and how we must embrace this precious gift. (That’s why they call it the present)

Then last week, I had an MRI scan on my brain which showed a 5-centimeter cyst in my frontal lobe. It is benign; however, it is something that needs to be closely watched to make sure it doesn’t grow or interfere with my cognitive and motor functions.

 

The message was loud and clear! Live my best life now! Don’t wait until tomorrow to begin doing what brings you joy. Love your life, give it your all and don’t be afraid to express your dreams. Work hard, play more, be kind, laugh lots and most of all create. Start right now to create your best life. We’re here for such a brief time, so let’s make the most of it.

  1. Hi Monica! I just couldn’t let this post go without a response. I just wanted to say how much I am enjoying watching (and energetically supporting) this shift in you toward more joy, more Presence, and more focus on the things that matter to you. AND the way in which you are sharing your message and energy with the world. I am grateful to be among your peeps.

    Love and gratitude,

    Deborah

    PS: so happy the cyst is benign! I don’t think you’re done with the world just yet.

      Hello dear Deborah,
      Thank you for those warm and delightful words and feedback. It means so much to me and it touched my heart deeply! I hope all is well with you. I’ve been travelling and haven’t been able to be on the last couple of calls. I will be leaving for Cuba next week too so I will miss the next call as well. I hope to resume in March. I miss our inspiring conversations.
      All the very best,
      Monica
