As the day begins anew – so do I.
I have been here before with my first cancer. This is not déjà vu all over again, this is as real as the words on this page.
It will be a journey of surviving and thriving. It will be a difficult adventure taking me through a maze of ups and downs, twists and turns, always knowing that positive success and survival are within my reach.
I will embrace this unknown journey. This is a new challenge to take head on.
These two cancers have traveled along with me in peaceful harmony for several years until now. They now behave like excited children waiting to go on a reckless outing. It is time to treat the cancers with aggression, and a good swift kick in the pants.
This is my third cancer. I am a proven survivor, a hard-headed fighter, and I will thrive.
I am afraid this time around. It’s probably a momentary brain-wave blip, and will last a short time given my determination and temperament.
I love orderliness, tangible things I can see, touch and understand. Okay, I admit it, I am a lover of control. Not in extremes – just what I can control!
I have created a wondrous bedroom retreat at my home. It is filled with a peaceful calm, a serenity garden off of the bedroom filled with glorious plants in every shade of nature’s green palate. The flowers I chose, all of them purple, are a delight to my heart.
It is a peaceful place. A quiet and joyful “chemo-place” to seek refuge and healing.
Today, and every day during the many months ahead, I will vigorously fight, attacking this diabolical invader while meeting it head on, directly, and forcefully. I will survive and thrive. My spirit is endless.
Today is a new day. A new direction. A new challenge.
Every Day Is A Gift!
