My late friend Yetunde used to say "Life is for the living" Really life is for the living. Last week while flipping through IG, I saw a picture of a lady wearing this very lovely white dress. Her name is Kyrzayda Rodriguez, I read the post on the picture and found out she was dead. I went through all her pictures on IG,went to her blog, read her posts, how she  was diagnosed with gastric cancer at 39, How she fought and not let cancer take her joy away. Her birthday post made me really appreciate life. As much as I whine and complain trust me, I love life! I may not be were I want to be, I may not have all the money in the world but, I'm healthy! Cancer did not stop her from doing what she loved, yes she had her bad days but she didn't dwell on it. She turned 40 in August and passed away in September. I am alive and healthy so I don't have any excuse not to live life to the fullest. Kyrzayda may be dead but she has left her mark in my life in such a positive way. I'm so glad that picture popped up on my timeline when it did. RIP Kyrzayda
