Just days before that lump jumped to centre stage, Mark presented me with this birthday card.
Its message so maddeningly trite but true.
Since then, life has seemed a series of countdowns. To surgeries, celebrations and ends of various treatments.
Escaping to the I Can Do It! Conference this weekend reminded me of the importance of choosing :
- openness to new perspectives and new possibilities
- self care
- healthy thoughts and habits
Above all, it reminded me that every breath can be a chance to start fresh.
I think I’ll take a few.
