Word Up Wednesday

cancer.  this is a direct quote from me to the cancer that has invaded the body of one of my oldest friends.  i found out last night that this beautiful, amazing, mother, wife and friend of mine was recently diagnosed with stage 4 hodgkin's lymphoma.  i am heartbroken and confused and saddened by this news and i want to tell cancer - gfy. 
luckily, my friend is a fighter.  luckily the type of cancer she has is 93% curable.  luckily she is surrounded by people who love her so much that i just know she is going to beat it.   

whenever a sad event happens, it is always a reminder for myself to enjoy every single day and live in the present.  to love everything and everyone i am lucky enough to have in my life.  because ultimately, what matters the most is now.  . 
so hug your loved ones a little bit tighter, call that friend you haven't spoken to in a while, forget little silly disagreements and relish is all the beautiful things you have in your life now.
