Paraphrased from CBS News Online, January, 2010.
After her diagnosis with breast cancer, Jennifer Lyon (now deceased) told People magazine that her experiences on “Survivor” had given her strength that helped her battle her disease.
“‘Survivor’ taught me there’s an end in sight,” she said. “As hard as it is, it will be over, and you have to appreciate every day.”
I liked her quote, about there being an end (a final end) and appreciating each day while you have it. Today is just one day in your life, but here it is… what are you doing with it? Maybe you wore your hair in a new way? Maybe you noticed something interesting on your way to somewhere? Maybe you did someone a favour or helped them in a way they really needed? Maybe you learned about something interesting? There are so many things we can each do to appreciate each day. It doesn’t have to be something dramatic, just something to make each day a bit special, a bit different from yesterday.
