I got some work done on my book yesterday. Perhaps it’s because I haven’t been feeling so hot (probably just a Cold), or because I put that damn counter on my Goals page, but whatever it is I’ve been having this feeling of urgency.

I’m more aware that my time is limited. I’m not trying to be melodramatic here. And I most certainly am not having a pity party. I’m just facing the obvious. I’m not fearful, just determined.

Now, I’m guessing I have many years before the old bucket gets kicked because my leukemia is still under control. Well, maybe control isn’t the right word, but Leuk is not very strong with me yet. The plain truth is everyone is terminal whether they’re healthy or not.

So, whatever it is, leukemia, a Cold, or just that counter, I’m glad for the motivation. It seems to be getting me off my butt finally. Well, actually I sit on my butt when I write, but you get my meaning.

I know I’ve said it before, but I truly hope you are pushing forward with whatever goals lie within your abilities. As long as you are breathing you still have time to achieve something. It doesn’t have to be anything big. If all you can muster is finally telling a family member that certain thing you’ve always wanted to say then do it. Come to think of it, that might just be one of the most important goals of all.
