2005 was the year I found out I had premature ovarian failure which is another way of saying early menopause. I was only 37 and I have to admit I was devastated because I did NOT expect that one coming. I was healthy. I worked out. I never experienced symptoms that would cause me to worry about that part of my health. This condition has also accelerated other stuff going on: osteoporosis, hypothyroidism, cholesterol issues. Sheesh. Today I live with those conditions but I haven’t let it stop me from living intentionally. 2005 was also the year my cousin Rodney unexpectedly passed away. He was only 28. We grew up together and til this day, there’s no explanation to his death.
Life is unpredictable. Can’t say what will happen tomorrow. All I know is that we owe it to ourselves and our loved ones to make the most of each moment with what matters to the heart.
Hanging on to beliefs and self-talk that doesn’t fuel purpose or passion is a recipe to a miserable and unfulfilled life. I share that because I know the feeling of having negative and limiting thoughts. Life is too precious to waste time⏱
