Indeed a Merry Christmas
…whenever I tell my story to others, my liver transplant, my cancer, my passion for triathlon, I often reminded of how blessed I am to be alive.
A few nights ago as I drove a friend back home, she asked me how I got into triathlon.
I am sure most of you will feel this way. I just open my mouth and doesn’t stop.
Where do you start? Training plans, motivation, the struggles, the love for pain….
As I shared about the journey that led to me to doing an Ironman last year, it dawned ever to me how much I should cherish life.
Part of the conversation came to a point where my friend said, ‘you will never have cancer again.’
To be honest, I do not know. It might come back. There people who had cancer re-occur.
With the topic of cancer leads to the topic of death.
I had cancer when I was 11. Technically I should be gone at the age of 12. I am 28 right now and I have been living 16 years more than I should have.
Let say tomorrow, my Maker calls me back. Should I ask Him to give me more years? Perhaps. He already gave me so much. More so than I needed.
….Indeed I am blessed and grateful to be alive. Let alone to be able to go crazy with going long.
n a short while I will be spending some time with my relatives. I wish everyone have a Merry Christmas.
On the training side…things are coming along. I swim 3 km on Monday. Woohooo. The body just wants chlorine. My mind is scared. For now, just ignore the mind and swim swim swim 😀
