My Journey With A Stage IV Cancer Diagnosis
After 9 months of living with a diagnosis of apparent Uncurable Cancer according to medical diagnostics and opinion, I have come to a few conclusions on what works for me.
What I really want and need each day is PEACE…. peace of mind, peaceful rest, and peace within my heart.
I don’t feel like I need to be known as ‘Brave’ or as a ‘Fighter’, although I acknowledge that I am indeed both of those things.
What is important to me is for me to be at ✌ PEACE.
How Do I achieve this?
So how do I achieve this? I do it first and foremost by accepting what is.
I have this diagnosis. Yes I do. I cannot resist what is because when I do that I am in resistance and in the frequency of fear, which are two places that I don’t want to be.
So I accept what is, I expect the best, I appreciate everything and I have gratitude for whatever I can latch onto. This my friends gives me the peace I seek.
When I lay my head to rest at night I no longer worry about the troubles of the earthly world anymore. They no longer seem as important to me. I recognize that I am a spiritual and infinite being.
It is interesting because I also no longer care about things that I thought I would care about. For example, when I die cremation or burial? I don’t care. What color or type of casket? I don’t care. And on and on my list goes….
What I do care about is as you know, is having PEACE and JOY.
Did I laugh today? Wow, that orange was so delicious. Look at the kindness shown to me today. I had energy to write a blog post today. Yay! I sat in someone’s presence and we just loved each other with no judgment or hidden agenda. People sang to me. I have an appetite even if for a moment. Bella is purring and lying on top of me as I see Sparkle dust all the way up to the ceiling (true story). I am so loved. I love so much.
There have been so many gifts that I have received on this journey and I am so grateful for them.
What About You My Friends?
It is my wish that others who choose to do so, benefit in some way from these insights. We put so much energy into our earthly journeys and roles, but what is truly important for YOU?
Can you seek peace now? Are some things really worth the so called fight? Where does your JOY come from?
Go within. This is where you will find your answers and I promise you they never appear from fear and strife but they always show themselves when peace is present.
