How will my husband and I be able to support ourselves? How will we afford escalating taxes and insurance costs in addition to all the other unavoidable cost of living expenses? These financial concerns escalated when the economy took a dive along with our income. Then suddenly life pulled me back into the present moment when I was diagnosis with breast cancer.
My future abruptly took a back seat, as I was suddenly forced to focused on the present moment. Addressing any life threatening health issue drastically changes your outlook. Healing or recovering from any health problem takes time and can not be rushed. It's a day to day journey.
I believe it's a combination of numerous things that contributed to my current health condition. I feel my soul offered this path if choices were made in this direction. So what were these choices I thought? And how can I heal and move forward into a healthier future?
Staying present is the most important lesson I've learned from having cancer. Always being focused on the future you tend to miss the gifts of day to day life. My new motto for the future is doing my best and having faith the future will unfold the way it was intended. Secondly, and most importantly letting go of the past. We all are doing our best, and we can't expect more. The past is in the past and can't be changed so move on not continuing to relive what you didn't enjoy the first time.
Everything that happens to us in life influences the people we become. We are who we are because of our life experiences. Appreciate, honor, and love, who you are and don't allow anyone to treat you with disrespect. People can disrespect you, but you don't have to stick around to listen.
