Live well

Today Ah ma went for a medical procedure. It was her first time utilising the Australian public health system so she was understandably nervous. Of course the underlying fear I am sure for her (and the whole family) was if the examination came out with negative results.

As we grow older, it is inevitable that we’re faced with 生老病死. Sadly, our extended family and some friends are going through difficult times, so fears of ill health and mortality are hitting very close to home.

The good news is ah ma’s results were great and all normal. So we all breathed a silent sigh of relief.

I guess the angst of fretting over your own and your loved ones’ health and mortality will never go away and in fact deepen as one ages. The challenge is to not let this fear overtake your life and make you forget to live well. If you’re too busy living and loving, you won’t have time to worry about dying right?

Haha I lol at myself for writing this because I’ve become such a pessimist since last year. But I still want to try to change and learn to live better, I haven’t given up, so that’s a good sign right ?
