12 Years Cancer Free

I am sitting here at night doing my usual writing. Dialing in my podcast, refining my inspirational speeches and I glanced at the calendar on my laptop. It hit me that tomorrow is a pretty special day. It is my 12th year free of cancer. I usually celebrate with a bunch of friends, have a few drinks and such. This year is different. It's a bit bittersweet. Reality hits, and it hits hard. I would normally be grateful for how amazing I was feeling, and how healthy my life has been. Once I had the heart attack, honestly, I didn't know I would get to the point of celebrating. I didn't know how/if my life would ever be the same again. Now that I'm almost six months out from the LVAD being put in my heart, I have MUCH to celebrate. I have a different, AMAZING life. I am living. I am thriving. I am doing the best I can, to get my health back. I have much more to accomplish with my health and the direction of my life. I have the most amazing girlfriend, family/friends, anyone can ask for. I have SO much to work for, so much to live for. 

About time

It’s all about time. Over the past couple months, all of my posts have defaulted to my social media pages. I figured I would update and simplify my website. Over the last few months, I have learned much about time. How it really is the most valuable thing we can obtain. Where sometimes we get lost in building a business, getting more followers, finding clients, etc. The end game is more money. That more money to each and every one of us is eventually going to equate to time. Time to travel. Time to camp. Time to mountain bike.  Time to enjoy what we really love to do. After my recent health scares, the time has been extremely therapeutic. It has taught me how important it is to slow life down and take a breath. Focus on the important parts. In my case, I had to recover from this heart attack and open heart surgery. The best and only way to recover is time. I am in no rush. I’m going to enjoy each and every second of this time. I will get stronger and healthier every single day. All in a matter of time. I am so excited to be back to blogging and sharing what I’ve learned along this way. Hope you enjoy.
