We Can Rebuild Her
Better than she was before… Better, Stronger, Happier. A Breast Cancer Journal

Irascible Me

My 30day yoga membership expired today.
That might explain my wondering:

  • Why do so many women react so weirdly to my not-working choice? Spare me the horror and the defensiveness.
  • How the heck does one perform a breast self-examination without visualizing and bracing for a lump?
  • And, what’s with all the fakes and flakiness?

I’m off to soak up a slice of this gorgeous sunny day and kick this ridiculous cloud to the curb.

Andrea Ross was diagnosed with breast cancer October 6, 2009 and intends to survive and thrive. You can read more from Andrea here.

    Wow – women reacting weirdly to your not-working choice??? You are not horrified or defensive at my envy, are you? nnotsdvon; – that is what you type when you are trying to google irascible and your fingers are one to the right. OK, now I know a new word.u00a0 nnGo have a great time on this sunny day. I am stuck in the office. But, I learned a new word!!

    I love your not-working choice and wish everyone else would too! Hope your day got better and the rest of it was free of fakes and flakes!

    Unrelated perhaps, but I’ve got to say, the many faces of Andrea Ross never cease to delight and inspire me.

    I hope maybe one day those “women” will realize that we are who we are and not what we do. Maybe they will come to realize that you are not “Working Andrea” or “Breast Cancer Survivor Andrea” u00a0but u00a0Andrea and that is perfectly enough at least for me. Thanks for the great picture too!

    Thank you, Janice, Jay, Cay, Jenny and Andree.nnMy day did get better. As soon as I hit the sunshine. nnI realize, when I’m in my right mind, that the hostility, defensiveness, fakeness and flakiness that I run into is other people reacting to their own stuff. I need to react with compassion. Or just let it roll off.nnAnd get on with enjoying the huge many blessings of my blissful life. Thanks for being part of that.
