Anonymous asked: I just found out that I have 1 year left to live and I'm scared. Cancer sucks. Please do some yoga for me? I'll be there in spirit :)

I’m so sorry darling, I can’t imagine how terrifying and devastating hearing that would be.

I don’t really know what to say, but I think the important thing is to live. There are so many people who live until ripe old ages, but they haven’t really been living, merely existing. Elderly people filled with regret and sorrow at the things they didn’t do, exciting memories never forged.

I want you to live. Live for all those who have floated through life just existing, not leaving a footprint on this earth, live for those before you who have had their lives prematurely cut short, for those after you.

What do you want to achieve? Places you want to see? Things you want to do? All the emotions you’re feeling right now, you’re scared because a shorter life means you won’t be able to talk to __, do __, see __. Make a list of what you want to do and try to do it all, I’m sure your family and friends will be more than happy to help you complete it.

If you live in Australia, you/your family can contact the ‘make a wish’ foundation which helps children and young people in similar situations make their wishes come true.

I’m about to do yoga right now, so I’m dedicating this session to you, in fact all the yoga I do in 2014 will be for you – I’m actually going to try to do it every day for you my baby warrior.

Sending you lots of love, strength and light xxxx
