BLOG – GIFT DAY 253 :: no turning back

12 Sep

In so many ways this year has been tough. 
So many changes, so many questions, and so much wading through the vast unknown.

And now, all of a sudden, I feel like I am on the “other side” of the surgery and all the “questions” that have occupied my head, heart, body and soul.

Being on this side feels like a new life, another chance, a re-start. 
I know this feeling all too well.

Every health issue I have ever had has served as a kick in the pants. A reminder that we are here to love, we are here to learn, we are here, period.  So just do what you want to do already!

Today I found a surprise in my suitcase. It’s a wine opener with a message that opened up my heart as soon as I read the words inscribed on it:

No Turning Back

It was placed there by Jaynane, in her signature style of heart-warming surprises.

She has been reminding me of this ever since we got the good news of my cancer-free clean bill of health — there is no turning back.

And she’s right.
There is only moving forward.

That is the precious present of time, although it comes with a double-edged sword that swiftly moves us forward whether we are ready or not.

So tonight I ask… if you know there is no turning back, how will you move forward?

What will you do next?

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless}
Jamie

{what will you do next?}
