February 12, 2017 Vlog
The focus of this Vlog is your feelings. Throughout my journey I have been told by so many people that I should feel this or feel that. Ultimately what you should be feeling is whatever your are feeling right now.
Thank you for taking the time to listen to my Vlog. If you would like to read what I wrote I have it below. Thanks for listening.
Feel your feelings
Hello my name is Shawn White, but you can call me Shawn White.
This is my vlog, this is your blog, this is for anyone who is exploring their heart and strumming its strings.
It is a place where I can express my feelings, to swim through the open waters of emotion, and find my way to warm shores.
I want to find a beach so bright with golden rays that I can revitalize my heart. Sand so soft and smooth I can dig my feet deep and anchor myself in place. A place I can enjoy the cool slow moving wind and enjoy it until the end.
This Vlog is not about what some would call sad, or bad. It is not about smiles or laughs. This Vlog is about life, it is about experience, it is about being human.
Throughout my cancer journey I have been told many things. Ultimately of all the advice given to me, the greatest given was by a man whose name starts with the letter S. He is a wise gentleman who has inspired me to accept and explore my feelings for what they are.
From his words to mine, I believe the greatest advice I could give, is to follow your heart like a toucan’s nose. Whatever you are feeling is the one you should know. Live your life, feel whatever you are feeling. If you are angry, be angry, if you are sad, be sad, if you are thinking about death, think about death. Stop refusing to experience your emotions because it might make someone else feel comfortable.
Live your life, feel your life, embrace the experience of existence.
