Life Is Fragile - Josie Tong

Life Is Fragile

Let me tell you what I have learnt …

When I was working in my management job I was contented, and I was not looking for other career options. I felt secure, and I thought that it was going to be my job for life.

Little did I know that one day, I will give up the career that has taken over “me”.

When I left my job, I did not have any backup plans.

But heck, my physical and emotional health was more important.

I remember feeling so fatigued and unmotivated. I felt like a  total wreck.

A couple of months after I quit my job, my motivation started to rise.

I wanted something more, so I started my Consultancy Business.

It has served me well until one day the unfathomable happened.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer!

What??  Me??

I thought I was healthy?  I went to the gym regularly, I ate well…I really thought I was okay.

When I was being wheeled to the operating theatre for surgery, I was praying so hard so that I could live to see my daughters walk down the aisles.

It was at that moment that I realized how fragile life can be.

So never take your life for granted.  Live in the moment, take risks, and be open to possibilities.  That’s what I did over 9 years ago. Now I have my life back and want to show others a path to Freedom.

What about you? Was there a moment in your life when you felt that ‘life was fragile’?
