Looking at Life From a New Perspective

Life has the darnest way sometimes of smacking you in the face. Last summer I had plans of getting the rest of my weight off and setting up my lessons plans for the school year and getting my house cleaned and getting all the little things done that I had put off because I coach and teach during the school year and them bam. I went for my mammogram last June and my life took on a nightmare walk. I found out I had breast cancer and I felt no this is not happening to me. It was wave after ...
Life has the darnest way sometimes of smacking you in the face. Last summer I had plans of getting the rest of my weight off and setting up my lessons plans for the school year and getting my house cleaned and getting all the little things done that I had put off because I coach and teach during the school year and them bam. I went for my mammogram last June and my life took on a nightmare walk. I found out I had breast cancer and I felt no this is not happening to me. It was wave after wave of bad news. I had a tumor that could not be felt through self breast exam and the good news is the doctor recommended only a lumpectomy. Then the next wave of bad news was it had spread to my limp nodes and I had to go through chemotherapy and radiation. Life has been about controlling symptoms of the chemo and going to doctor appointments and learning how to live with cancer and without hair on my head and arms and legs. It has taught me that I can endure more pain than I thought and more resilience than I thought. I see life differently and clearer. I take life in half hour increments and enjoy my faith, family, and music in more meaningful than I every did before. Sights, sounds, and smells are different and each have more meaning for me and I am writing more and feeling more differently about and events around me. Life is good and if it took cancer to bring it out then then the cancer has been good for me to give me this new perspective on life. I am grateful to the cancer that it has created this rebirth for me and helped me see life in a different way and extended me these new meanings for me and created others and thankful every day I have been given.

Thank you for the encouraging words about zumba. I loved zumba and went almost every week and then I started a new job last year and didn't feel I could concentrate on zumba. Big mistake. I gained 10 lbs. Don't know if it was the lack of exercise or what, but now feel motivated to do it again. I told myself, to just enjoy it and not worry about being perfect. I hope you feel better.
