Leslie221 Posted August 20, 2005 Share Posted August 20, 2005 "Cancer got me over unimportant fears, like getting old." ~ Olivia Newton-John Boy, is she right! The last couple of years before I got lung cancer, I was totally FREAKED OUT about approaching 50! I was sure I was washed up, used up, worn out, over the hill, and under the radar! I also feared nobody would really miss me if I wasn't around, that I had not accomplished the things I meant to and never would; I had been given many gifts and I had squandered them and now it was too late. The...POOF...lung cancer! And suddenly I didn't feel old at all. I was TOO YOUNG, in fact! Wrinkles? Don't like 'em, but SO WHAT?!? Found out an awful lot of people really care about me and would miss me very much! And realised, it's NEVER too late to do something that's important to me even if I can only whisper "I love you" to someone! Leslie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
