My Cancer, has yet to claim me. I am here, I am making each day count and I am a survivor.
After many experiences that have tested me throughout my life, I have concluded that the purpose of adversity is to teach us and make us stronger. If we are never challenged, we cannot grow spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. I am even thankful for those who have tried to cause me harm because they taught me patience and compassion. I also firmly believe that “thoughts create reality.” I work very hard to make sure my thoughts are positive and focus on the way I want my life to be rather than simply accepting, on the surface, what appears to be my destiny.
To me, “Spirit” is the essence of “All” there is. I believe we are each a “fragment” of “God.” Because of this, we have boundless possibilities and creativity. I like to think of my spirit as a tree made up of roots, trunk, boughs, and leaves. My spirit is the entire tree, whereas the life that I am living now may be perhaps only a leaf on that tree, living a completely different reality from all the other parts.
This me – a little tiny Tree…in life.
