I’m watching the latest Glee and bawling my eyes out. The loss of Finn/Cory brought a touch of reality to this feel good series. People aren’t supposed to die in the fantasy land that is television.
I’m naive, I know.
I understand people die for stupid reasons. Like drug use. And accidents. And cancer.
But I want the happy ever after that Cory will never have. For him. And for me.
October is Breast Cancer Month. Reminders of my own year of uncertainty are all over the internet, the television, and even in my local supermarket. Uncertainty of not knowing if my days were numbered rather than unlimited. Today, as a five year survivor, I still have moments of fear, but I also know to grab the things I want my life to express now, not someday.
If you’re female, do your breast exams, get a mammogram. If you’re male, remind your significant other, your sister, and your mother.
And everyone, hug the people you love. Because love is all you get.
