Livestrong

I have a yellow Livestrong bracelet on my wrist that I have been wearing for the past several weeks. It was given to me.
Every time I look at it I think what does that mean? So today, I am wondering what do you think those little yellow bracelet's mean? If you were to define a STRONG life what would it look like?

For me I think of every friend recently who has been touched by cancer in their life and I think about their bodies how tired and sore they must feel after chemo. I think about that and then it motivates me to shut up, and get up and get going!! It puts all my minor aches and pains into perspective. It also helps me to realize that this body that I have is a gift, on loan, and that I have been a terrible owner. I am thankful for this body that birthed 4 beautiful children and has lived through a lot in the past 34 years. 

Tell me what do you think it means to LIVESTRONG?

For me it means to never give up . . . We may make mistakes, but are never really defeated unless we quit . . .

To me it does not mean wearing a "rah-rah" always-on-top-of-the-world mask that we parade as a badge of honor for the poor misfortunate who are not as "enlightened" as we are . . .
