Once again, life has sent a curveball in my direction. I’ve been recovering from the worst case of influenza I’ve ever encountered. To top it off, it turned into a nasty case of esophagitis. I legitimately thought I was going to die last week. mind you, I was wicked dehydrated and starving, thanks to my condition.
This clearly hasn’t done wonders for my state of mind. I was even toying with the idea of leaving Japan.
Two days ago my friend Emily bravely announced her diagnosis of cervical cancer. She is 28 years old and I watched her grow up. Emily lives as one should. She doesn’t just dream it, she lives it and makes goals a reality. I am confident that she will kick the shit out of this cancer and come out even stronger. Her story has reignited my signature determination to win. when I say win, I mean to win at life. Nothing is promised and I’d lost the plot on that. Allowing negativity to set up shop and sitting in complacency?
No, ma’am. That’s not who I am. I walk into life, purse first and it’s time to grab my trusty clutch and turn it, bitch.
