As some of you know, I work in a busy hospital as an MRI technologist. I take care of patients who have cancer and who are dealing with scary disease processes. Some days my job absolutely sucks because some people die way to young and I feel like I know these people after spending months taking care of them as they come back for follow up MRI scans.
So many of these people are my heroes.
Why you may wonder. well here is how I see it.
As I tell so many of these people, we are not promised tomorrow, we have the moment that is before us and none of us know what tomorrow will bring so we must make the most of what we have and the people that are sharing our lives with us. I am healthy today but none of us have a promise that tomorrow wont bring us different news.
These very brave people fight with all they have in them to be the one that defies the odds.
They fight because they want to live and they want to be there for their young children to grow up. They fight because they believe there will be a cure eventually.
So to all of us, I say fight! Fight for your health, fight to be the best that you can be.
Fight to lose the weight that is holding you back.
Fight to win the battle over food addiction.
Fight like your life depends on it, because it does.
We get one go around here on earth, so pick today to change the way you want to live your life and fight to find freedom from depending on food to fill the void that it may be filling.
Fight to live your life like you want to live it.
Fight to end the aches your body has because it is carrying around excess weight.
Eat to live, don't live to eat.
I love food but I love myself more. I want to be healthy and travel and walk and run and to keep myself as healthy as I can so I can fight sickness if it knocks at my door.
Please fight for you. It is not easy, no one ever said it would be but you are worth the fight.
So get up each day and start anew and fight to be the best that you can be.
Happy Holidays to all of you and may we ring in 2015 with the knowledge that we will fight for our health.
Have a very Merry Christmas to all those that celebrate!
I am so thankful for my friends here on SP and know that I owe much to so many here that keep me coming back every single day.
You are all so awesome.
