My mother has stage four lung cancer.
On July 14th, 2014, we were told by her doctors that her cancer is terminal. The strongest form of chemotherapy had been attempted, and had failed.
My mother has been in a hopsital bed in the living room of my house since July 13th, when she was discharged from ICU after having a seizure and a heart attack- each a result of the cancer.

She is content. Sitting surrounded by her family in her own house. But no moment other than July 14th at 5:30 p.m did the status of my life truly hit me in the stomach like two tons of bricks.

People will tell you this for as long as you live, but life is so entirely short. You can agree and nod your head that you know that it is, but you must live it that way as well.

After three days of keeping to myself and avoiding confrontation, I sat down and wrote something.
16 Things I Learned The Hard Way
I then filmed this video. This is a video stating a handful of things I have come to realize throughout my life, and things that I know I, you, he, she, we should understand and live by from time to time.

Please watch this. Please take note of it, and please understand it.
Reblogs would be more than appreciated
This is the first time I’ve ever even spoken out about what has been going on since October. Spreading of the word, and support are all that I could ask for. My mother always reminds me that positivity is key, I want to make her proud.

Pardon me while I shed a few tears before bed. This makes my heart so happy.
