no one told me i had cancer

The first post I’ve published (June 2018) was about starting writing my first book. No one told me I had cancer will cover my whole cancer journey/struggle/story or however you may want to call it. I thought I will be almost done writing it by now but to be frank, I am only halfway through. I could come up with a lot of excuses for why I am not in the editing stage already but that would be just a waste of my time and also yours, the reader. So the reason for why I am even writing this post in the first place is for myself. Today I turned 28 and it made me think…

I’ve been following Gary Vaynerchuk for months and I realized that no matter how many inspirational or motivational videos or articles he creates, there’s never anything I could say back to start a debate if he would be in front of me. If you don’t know who he is “just google it”, as he loves to say, but he is not your usual motivational speaker – I can tell you that much. He’s the kind of guy that makes you think twice before spitting out all of your excuses for not achieving what you want in life. So, this morning while having my coffee I watched again several of his videos and I felt like he’s yelling at me for WANTING but NOT DOING…

What do I want?

Do I want to see my first book published and people buying it? Of course, I do! But I haven’t had the discipline of writing a single sentence in the last month …

No one told me I had cancer is supposed to inspire people no matter if they had cancer or not. I forgot to keep reminding myself of this single thing every day. I felt like it became a daily task (and basically – that’s what it is) and not my fun hour a day of planting a seed. Of course, things have happened and not every day I felt an uprising motivation for life but I always had one hour to kill and that’s what I did – killed it. I could have capitalized on that spare time and invest it in writing a thousand more words for my first book.

I did not know what this post will be about until I started writing it. Doing it I am basically just getting things out of my mind down on this digital piece of paper to remind myself why I wanted to write a book in the first place. Therefore, closing this article I am promising myself that I’m gonna’ get back in the game and finish the book sooner than the already postponed deadline that I’ve given myself.
