Dear Travel Agent,
Let me share an experience I had last year. A dear friend found out he had cancer and his life was turned upside down. I know many of you have had family or friends with the scary “C” and have dealt with it in different ways.
I lost my mom and her mom (my grandma) to colon cancer. Ever since I turned 35 I have had a colonoscopy every other year to be proactive, just in case I also have the gene.
I try not to think about cancer too often, but when it happens to a friend or family member, I find myself reviewing and analyzing the meaning of my own life. I remember that I am not eternal, and unfortunately, neither are my friends and family. Life is to be lived to the fullest every day. We don’t know what tomorrow holds for us. Planning well is not a guarantee for a longer life, just to a better future. Money cannot buy health, nor extra time in life. We cannot take money to wherever we go – no matter what we believe about the afterlife.
Let’s live life to the fullest, give back, pay forward, help others, travel. The only thing we keep and we leave are memories. Let them be the best of all!
Thank you, and please get involved by helping a cause. I am helping to crush breast cancer through Avon 39. If you’d like to help too, visit:
