Just when you think you are reading about the life of someone else you realize it is, in actual fact, all about you. For it is in the art of appreciating your life story and what it has to teach you that you get to choose the option of functioning from a position of strength. More
It is true. You do not appreciate what you have until it is no more. Or, in my case, you are about to lose what you had so taken for granted: your life. By my reckoning, confronting one's mortality is not for the faint-hearted. For me, it was the perceived surety of terra firma to hovering mid-air above a deep, blue-black abyss. Bereft of control.
