Talk about a wasted effort – this past week has been completely and utterly pointless but it’s certainly taught me some life lessons, one of which is to embrace the moment and to ‘just do it’. There’s no point in hanging around wondering about the what-ifs, time waits for no man or woman for that matter.
It’s no use staying inside and hiding from the World because your worried about what might happen, what other people may think or what could go wrong… get out and live life – So long of course, as you stay two meters apart from any passers-by and you abide by whatever rules are currently in place (not that they make any sense as our government can’t seem to make their minds up as to what we are doing).
This afternoon my folks and I decided to live by the ‘just do it’ motto and we spent a sunny afternoon on the golf course. It was Dad’s first time playing golf since surgery and whilst he’s still very frail and he lacked a little coordination, he managed so well.
This week was my Dad’s first week of chemotherapy and I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting to see many smiles, yet there he was grinning on the golf course – it was an absolute joy to see him up and about smiling in the sunshine.
I cannot tell you how proud I am of my Dad for his bravery, effort and give-it-a-go-attitude throughout this battle he’s facing. It’s days like today which seem to magically wipe away the memories of a weary week.
