Ali Gilmore – A Tale of Imperfection at its Best
Three years ago I was working my 15th year in technology , feeling burnt out and pretty middle aged. If you’d told me then that I was about to face and beat stage IV colon cancer, publish a book that inspires others to fight the disease and win, become a sports photographer with a highlight of covering David Beckham’s final US match at the 2012 MLS Cup and have written and performed over 30 original songs, I would’ve thought you were some kind of twisted Tony Robbins wannabe, but this is my life now and every day I get this much closer to my goals of making millions of people less afraid of cancer and better prepared to face it and of making music again. We are now two of the three to be. I’m being pushed to play longer, singer louder and with more conviction than ever before.
I can’t believe it took all of that for me to realize this dream of a life. I live to encourage others to find their better life now, despite “x”, whether it be cancer, a crap job or whatever is holding ‘em back.
So, what are you waiting for?
