Today I was scrolling through Facebook and just like every morning a list of ‘friends’ who are having birthday today scrolled by. The first name on the list was a former member of the gym. I immediately was saddened because instead of a celebration, I thought about how she died several years ago.
She was born with Cystic Fibrosis and had been the recipient of a double lung transplant. She came to us to exercise and get her lungs stronger, and she did extremely well when she was with us. Despite her best efforts, the sickness got the best of her, and she passed away.
I’ve had three former clients pass away so far in the last 10 years we’ve been in business, and it saddens me to think about it, since we are promoters of living life.
The only thing we can do is focus on living to the fullest, being present with the ones we love, and remember that tomorrow is not promised. Be present, don’t take for granted.
Hope you guys have an amazing week!
