You're the author of your life. If you're not happy with the chapter you're in, you alone have the power to write something new.
We can't change the fact that we had cancer, but we can change so many other things in our life in response. We can change our attitudes, our beliefs, our religious views, our spiritual views, our political views, how we approach our day and our daily routines, our hobbies, whether we exercise or not, our diet, who our friends are and who we associate with, what we do at night, what we do on the weekends, and so many other things. Now, ask me what I've changed in response to cancer and all of its ugly aftermath in order to thrive again? ALL OF THE ABOVE. No stone has been left unturned, and I have changed practically every aspect of my life in response to cancer.
How would my life be today had I not evolved and made so many changes? Not in the GOOD place I've made for myself today, that's for certain. Cancer changes every aspect of our lives. You have to makes changes in your lifeto evolve beyond it.
