If you don't go towards the thing you fear, you won't be able to say you lived.
My mom passed away at 41 from diabetes. And I'm 42, thank you. I didn't want to do that to my son. So any time I was at the gym, that thing that helped me do that last squat was my son calling some other woman mommy. And that would just give me that extra oomph to do that last squat. I want to be around for him.
I know that for me I have to get out of the way and let God take control.
I love working. If somebody took away my jobs, I don't know what I would do. I'm just the kind of person who has to stay busy.
