I've been on a roller coaster ride for the past 3 years. Somehow, I managed to tap into peace and positivity, even during the most difficult moments of my healing journey. It wasn't always easy, but I did what I had to in order to step through the difficult moments as quickly as possible and not buy real estate on that land of negativity and worry.
A huge part of my healing was due to the support of my family and friends. They carried me on their wings to healing. They were there for me almost 24/7 for an entire year. Angels...they're angels on earth and I will forever be grateful to them.
And yes...I'm also a positive person. Does my state of my mind have something to do with the fact that I'm now cancer-free and living life to the fullest? No doubt in my mind. Having that positive mindset has kept me and continues to keep me focused on my daily goals: to continue living a healthy life, to live in joy and peace, not to worry, to live with purpose and be of service, to savor every delicious moment.
Today, my life is normal. Normal in a different way. I'm not a workaholic anymore. I find beauty in everything...from the tiniest of insects to the grandest of mountains. I give up control to Spirit/God...and trust that everything will unfold as it's supposed to. I am able to receive and feel good in it...knowing that it's not all about doing. I'm learning that the world will keep spinning, even when things are not done...my way. There is a balance I never had before. I trust more. I'm at peace. There is no preoccupation with cancer. I see it as a blessing in my life that has led me to new people, understandings and experiences. I now follow my heart more than before and give dreams a chance to take off. One of my dreams has always been photography and soon I will have my second photo exhibit.
A few weeks ago I was just given the "All Clear." It was a very emotional day that really took me by surprise. All I could say...or think was THANK YOU. Thank you for my life, my friends and family, my angels, my experiences, the air that I'm breathing...the car that I drive, my pets, my delicious new boyfriend, even my wrinkles and extra pounds...they prove I'm alive! They're all a part of ME. One of my favorite sayings comes to mind: “If you don’t think every day is a good day, try missing one.” Cavett Robert
I don't plan on missing a single day of my life...no matter what it brings. Join me on this fabulous roller coaster. Whether we're climbing uphill or screaming on our way down....enjoy the ride. It's the only one we have...at least in this lifetime.
Lots of love!
