Afterword: Final Thoughts

“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” – Marilyn Monroe

As far as any of us knows, we only get one life to live and for as long as I’m alive, I’m going to fight for it.  I may go down, but if I do, you’d better believe I’m going down fighting tooth and nail and for every last breath. In the case of Ultimate Pulmonary Wellness, this means gathering up your army, and using every weapon and tool you have at your disposal.  Your army includes your family, your friends, and your doctors, and other healthcare professionals, among others.  Your tools and weapons are your medications, exercising, eating well, managing your stress and anxiety, and taking steps to prevent infection.

For today, try not to focus on what you don’t have or what you can’t do.  Focus on the things that you can do and do them well.  If you can help someone else in the process, that’s all the better. Answer someone’s question, share your experience, express a few words of encouragement to someone that is struggling…and breathe. You are alive! Make sure you don’t forget to live. I am with you.  Make it a great one, my friends.

“Never, never, never, never give up!” – Winston Churchill
