Empowered to choose better

A person lives more fully once they've realised death is inevitable. Unless they are melancholy or prone to pessimism; then denial is preferable, but unlikely. Because of a melanoma diagnosis late in '08, I now receive free flu vaccines and other health maintenance perks. While that's nice, there's more value in the journey than that. Illness makes some decisions for us, but it often empowers us to make better decisions for ourselves.
