What does it take to change?
Tuesday, June 7, 2016
Cancer is a powerful motivator for change. Sometimes it takes the realization that death is closer than we think to finally wake up and live. There are parts of my life that I chose to ignore.

I'd make a meager attempt at change but soon lapsed back into sleepwalking through my days.
