I am hopeful because we are crossing a threshold and have reached the critical mass where the positive news will continue to outweigh the negative; and forward motion becomes unstoppable. Some of these things are big, many are small. They are all putting drops in the bucket of my hope.
The folks at Long’s Cleaners gave me a button that said “Cancer Sucks”. I never wore it. I didn’t like the word – and later I didn’t like the message. Of course cancer is bad, but if you are lucky enough to survive, cancer can be a great life coach. Cancer is the darkness that makes you appreciate the light. My cancer showed me that life is better and more valuable when you enjoy each moment and stay focused on all the positives of every experience unfolding around you.
