Lifestyle is a word that is a lot of fun to define and talk about. That being said, there are certain life stages that are more conducive to enjoying our lifestyles. For instance, when you are younger, you have more autonomy and can do anything you want, and you can start living your own life.
Personally, I’ve always enjoyed living my life on my own terms. My life has always been pretty laid back, but that also means it’s been about being comfortable with myself. I know when I’m feeling down, and I know I need to get back up out of the bottom of my life. And on the flip side, when I’m feeling better, I’m back to myself and have my own life again.
We are actually in the middle of that transition right now. I was recently diagnosed with stage 4a throat cancer and have been told that this is the last year I will live, so I am currently doing my best to live my life as comfortably as possible. It is tough, but it is what I want to do. I want to live my life as full of freedom and happiness as possible.
I feel like I am living my life the way I always wanted to, but I am struggling the way it has been for all these years. I have to force myself to do things that I was reluctant to do when I was younger. I am no longer afraid to be myself, and I feel that I am finally living in the moment.
