While I was away…

I sit here and ponder all that has happened since I stopped writing back in October of last year and I can tell you this, October 2013 through January 2014 kind of sucked. Just when you think you are on top of things the universe shows up with a challenge and changes the landscape of your life.

I was doing everything I had set out to do… writing every day, enjoying my work and building my business, studying to better my MAT skills, working out, and trying to be a good Dad and boyfriend everyday. But then I get hit with the bad news that my girlfriend has cancer and must first go through an operation to remove it and then treatment, radiation for almost 7 weeks. "Crap! You're kidding, right?"

Now she is fine, "Cancer Free" and except for some of the effects left from the radiation treatment (those suck!), we both have a renewed outlook about life. But I have to tell you, I was angry there for a while. 

I stopped writing, I stopped working out, I felt like I got hit by a truck… and I wasn't the one with cancer. But you sit and watch your best friend go through something like that and it changes you.

How could I write and enjoy my life when the person I love gets hit with such a thing? I tried my best but once she had her surgery and then while she went through her radiation treatments, the only energy I had was for her and to take care of my son. Writing, trying to inspire others and even working or taking care of myself seemed like the last things I wanted to do.

Ultimately, I did what I had to do… and as I ask myself those important 3 questions in past tense I can only come with:
  • When I was doing it!
  • Who I was with!
  • Be in the moment!
So I am back on a streak of writing, albeit 2 days, what comes tomorrow I don't know, but today I write with life looking pretty good as I know I am where I am… If I was supposed to be somewhere else… I would be there. Thankfully with the most wonderful friend a guy could have.

I love you D!

Health and Happiness!
