Meditation Monday – “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” Steve Jobs

Although I try to focus on the gifts of cancer, its losses are eternally present. The death of Steve Jobs is a momentous loss from cancer – to his family and to the world. We have lost a genius, innovator and leader. As a fellow cancer survivor, I am stricken by the reminder of how much cancer has taken and how at risk we all are.

While I grieve his death (most likely) from pancreatic cancer, it’s important to be mindful of the inspirational lessons he left us. I’ll let Steve Jobs speak for himself about how to live your life fully beyond cancer, as he so eloquently did, and I will be quiet and listen:

I Love It Too

AnneMarie:

It is such a beautifully simple speech.  I love the “connecting the dots” idea.  It’s only when we look back that we see the connections and how truly lucky we are.

Yes, connecting the dots when looking backwards….. that entire speech was touching and profound. I think I’m going to listen to it again. I need motivation right NOW!!!

Still So Motivational

AnneMarie:

This is an especially good time of year to look back to connect our dots. I’m so sorry still about Steve Job’s passing, but he left us with so much more than an iPod.

Survival > Existence,

Debbie
