Put Life In Perspective

A couple of months ago this dude I met doing this time was told that he has cancer , and he has less than 24 months to live . Then today I was told about a guy in my unit that has cancer and he was told that he wouldn’t make it home , and he only has 65 days left . That really messes with me because alot of us are constantly worrying about the bs , and not really appreciating life itself . I couldn’t even imagine being in that situation . Being told that I have a certain amount of time to live . I don’t know how I would react to that type of news . And here I am upset about people hating on my Bulls . Really ? Man , we really need to put life in perspective . I know I do , and that’s why I’m doing all the things I need to be doing so I can actually live life and not take it for granted anymore . Now with that being said , I’ll leave y’all with this : Life is not a given , it’s a blessing . Live it , enjoy it , cherish it , because it can be over before you know it . Today, somebody somewhere didn’t get another shot at life .
