It's Me ... Only Better
I fought the battle with the “Big C” and won!
A year later, I am better than ever!
Cancer has been like a mirror held up in front of me.
It forced me to take a good look at myself.
I had to ask myself, "Where are you going?"
“What are you doing?”
It made me redefine my priorities.
I realized it really is the little things that make my life sweet, special.
Cleverly disguised as friends and family~
I witnessed the angels walking around me~
each one touching my life deeper than I ever dreamed possible.
Cancer forced me to embrace a change in myself -
a change that enabled me to grow and become the person I am today;
to have the freedom to be the person I want to be,
but never seemed to have the time to achieve.
Change always involves risk and is usually scary!
Jumping head first from the known into the unknown,
I had to embrace uncertainty and accept that I was not in control.
This battle has been the ultimate test of my character.
I have been forced to trust my heart and reach deep inside myself
for strength and power I knew I had, but did not rely upon.
I have come to understand that even though I had cancer, I was never a victim.
I am a survivor in heart and spirit and always will be!
Cancer truly is a defining diagnosis.
It was a moment that made me redefine the impossible in myself and my world.
And, since I did, nothing will ever be the same again...
I will never be the same again…
I am better!
