Make the most of this day. Whatever that means to you, whatever you can do, no matter how small it seems.
Find a bit of beauty in the world today. Share it. If you can’t find it, create it. Some days this may be hard to do. Persevere.

I never met Lisa Adams, but her words impacted me. I checked her blog and followed her tweets regularly and sat in awe of how she taught others how to live, while she embraced her own death. Lisa, wife and mother of three, passed away on March 6 at age 45 from metastatic breast cancer.
Honor Lisa today by making your medical appointments, finding bits of beauty in your world, or donating to her cancer research fund.

What a nice way to honor Lisa’s memory. I too followed her blog and tweets, always inspired by her lovely voice and the information she shared (we even had a few exchanges about Corgis via IG because she has one and we are on the waiting list for one–I was hoping that we’d have ours before she passed so that I could show her a picture, but sadly that did not happen). I do miss seeing her “find a bit of beauty” tweets so much.
Thanks for sharing your story about Lisa. I know so many will miss her words and presence. xo
These words and this photo bring tears to my eyes. I can’t believe Lisa is gone. xox
I am so sorry for your loss, Lindsey.
Last night I heard about Dr. Paul Kalanithi’s passing and just can’t believe that two people who helped and encouraged others to live an authentic life are gone. The world feels a little hollow right now. xo
I was so sad to hear she passed. Xo
Beautiful quote of hers to share.
I was very sad to hear the news. I have made some annual medical appointments actually, and I’m not very good at doing so.
Thank you for the link. I had heard of her news but did not yet have the chance to read her words. Thank you too for the reminders. Recently I began looking my parents’ recent situation as a preview to my future with my husband and son as well, and I want to do what I can to ensure as many healthy years as possible.
I am glad that Lisa’s legacy is continuing, with women and men taking active involvement in their health. xo
I’m in bed recovering from chemo and I’m going to make the most of this day anyway! Thanks, Rudri!!
You are amazing. Love to you. xo
