Are you living in the moment?

2 minute read | May 30, 2022

Are you always thinking about what has to be done? Always chasing your tail?
What about living your life in the moment.
The moment is all that we have and life can change in an instant as it did for Terry Tucker.
Terry joined me on the Glass Half Full Podcast to share his story.

When was the last time you enjoyed a walk in nature, noticing the things around you?
When was the last time you looked up and wondered at the stars?
When was the last time you actually tasted what you are eating?
When was the last time you actually listened to your partner?
When was the last time you listened to you?

Life is made up of moments.

Enjoy everyone.

Enjoy the podcast with Terry.

Here is a bit more about Terry.

I became a police officer with the Cincinnati Police Department, where I was a SWAT Hostage Negotiator. Following a family relocation to Texas, I started a school security consulting business and coached high school girls basketball in Houston. Each time I took on a new job, I had to develop new skills and faced different challenges. There was always a significant learning curve with every new position.   But my greatest challenge began in early 2012 when I was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Acral Lentiginous Melanoma, which presented on the bottom of my foot. By the time the melanoma was detected, it had metastasized to a lymph node in my groin. Because my cancer is so rare (only about 5,800 people are diagnosed with this form of malignancy in the U.S. each year), I was treated at the world-renowned MD Anderson Cancer Center. I had two surgeries to remove the tumors, and after I healed, I was put on a weekly injection of the drug, Interferon, to help keep the disease from coming back.  I took those weekly injections for almost 5 years before the Interferon became so toxic to my body that I ended up in the Intensive Care Unit with a fever of 108 degrees. Fortunately, expert medical care saved my life.

Enjoy an amazing day.
