Cancer Truth Note: #306
Every circumstance comes with a gift. Even if you cannot see it yet!
Truly every circumstance. Some may take years to see the gift in them. If you look, the gifts are usually there.
In my case a number of great things came out of my cancer diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship. My husband and I got married mid-treatment, the screening echocardiograms identified a non cancer related leaky valve I could feel the impact of but had never been diagnosed with, and my experience informed the work I was already doing with breast cancer survivors in a significant way.
Don’t get me wrong there are challenging days and it is not all roses, like the rest of life. If we are able to find the nuggets of positivity in the challenges science tells us there is a well being benefit in that.
What gifts can you identify today? Big or small they all add up!
