When things are falling apart, something new is falling into place. A cancer diagnosis feels like this. It’s a long and winding road that you have to take one step, one day, at a time because the next step is all you can see. Uncertainty abounds.
You put your trust and faith in science. You pay attention to your body like never before. You lean on friends. You rally, you fall, you rally again.
It’s a rollercoaster mentally, physically, and emotionally. You learn what matters most. And in all the difficulties, you do find joy and gratitude and light. They aren’t always easy to see and sometimes you need a good cry to clear away the haze.
So you call a friend and you cry and then you get up again because that’s all you can do. The sun rises every morning and so do you.💛
