The Good Life

Everybody wants that thing called “a good life.” Well here’s my question, what does that even mean? Exactly what is it that moves a life from “an average life” to “the good life”? For that matter, who gets to decide what constitutes a good life?
If you asked a hundred people those questions, chances are you would get a hundred different answers. But even in the variety of answers, you would find several common areas that are important to almost everybody. So, while your definition may vary from mine, there are many things that we would both consider necessary for the good life.
I have a good life.
Despite the struggles of the past few months I am incredibly grateful that I am healthy, I am lucky. There are those unfortunately that struggle with their health. I did something today that I hope will allow me to give back. 
I signed up with One MatchThe OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow Network was originally established as the Unrelated Bone Marrow Donor Registry. It is dedicated to recruiting and locating compatible, committed, healthy, unrelated donors for patients in Canada and around the world. It took five minutes of my time and a trip to the mailbox. 
Please visit One Match today.


  1. That is very generous of you! It is definitely something to think about it.

  2. I signed up for this a few years ago after a friend of my mom's saved a mans life through this. And my girlfriend - who incidentally has identical twins through IVF (haha random fact) actually was chosen as a match and donated this summer!!!

  3. millionbabysteps - That's amazing that your girlfriend was able to donate and great that you've also signed up! Following along on your blog...good luck!
