An adventure I’d prefer not to repeat

2018 has been an adventure…good and bad via the silver lining. It’s almost over even while I am still following up with 2019 appointments and payments and I hope ….HOPE, HOPE, HOPE… that by spring this will all be in the review mirror with the exception of some ‘follow-up appointments’.

Cancer is bad.

The good: reframe life and priorities, get things “in order”, get to that bucket list, instantly learn how to not sweat the small stuff, let go of people and things that I now know don’t matter, a clarity on the unit of time called ‘now’, pay NO attention to ‘news’ or media or ‘what’s going on’, take life a little more slowly – pay attention to things that are usually ignored like that thin magenta line between the dark horizon and the burgeoning blue sky…sunrise, accept play time and reading time and sleeping in, ‘healthy’ has new meaning, notice how people treat me differently, move about the world a little differently, realize everyday that contentment or happiness is a choice, nothing is forever.

I hope for a different kind of adventure in 2019…something really good.

  1. I hope 2019 will bring you peace and joy. I can attest that cancer eventually ends up in our rear-view mirror, and life takes on a semblance of normal. But, you are right in that you will never see life the same, and what seems so important starts to be so trivial. Wishing you the best.

    1. Hi Steve – I’ve realized I don’t have many wishes and the ones I have are simple now. I think I’ll always wait for the other shoe to drop, so to speak, which is fine; I’ll be forever more aware that life is not eternal but use each day to stay on top of what’s important. Nice to hear from you!
