Ten years ago, a dear friend was diagnosed with cancer. Following an emotional roller coaster of anguish, isolation and thousands of ‘why me?’ questions, this health challenge gradually acted as a wake-up call- a gift of life as my friend says. This ignited a deep desire in him to start living meaningfully and look at life with a REFRESHED eye. Tonight, we celebrated 10 years since his wake-up call into wellness and raised a glass to his words of wisdom: – simplify life… – get rid of all the clutter – find, or re-discover a passion (his one is cycling) – live meaningfully – enjoy the moment – eat healthy- feed your body and nourish your soul – stay fit – when you cannot change a situation, change your attitude We followed my friend and his ‘new’ passion into the Old Town of Nicosia with our bikes under the moonlight. And when we stopped for a toast, we wished him many more anniversaries and a life filled with health, love, happiness and passion!
