I could go on and on about how much I hate what is going on in the world right now, but all I’ll say is this: I don’t care who is right and who is wrong, God created us all equal. He created us to be kind to one another. He created us to do good. It is ok to stand firm for what you believe in, but please, do it in the best interest of others- respect their beliefs and opinions, but above all, treat others the way you want to be treated.
Maybe, instead of focusing on what divides everyone we could focus on what brings everyone together. Where focus goes, energy flows. We all want a cure for cancer, we all want world peace, we all want clean oceans and a healthy planet. We all want our rights reserved- life, liberty and justice. What are we going to do about it?
As excited as I am to call myself a survivor… an OVERCOMER, I am also saddened. Some of my friends that started chemotherapy before me are still there, receiving their treatments… and they will be there until the end. Sadly, some of them are already starting to dwindle away…. and it breaks my heart.
With that said, like I’ve said before, I feel like my diagnosis was given to me for a reason and that reason is to support and help others on their journey, whatever it may be: health and wellness or cancer. I have a new perspective on life and as an Enneagram Type 7, I am beyond ready for this next chapter in my life. It’s time to start making connections, reaching out to others and using my past experiences and knowledge to help others.
Type 7: We have named this personality type The Enthusiast because Sevens are enthusiastic about almost everything that catches their attention. They approach life with curiosity, optimism, and a sense of adventure, like “kids in a candy store” who look at the world in wide-eyed, rapt anticipation of all the good things they are about to experience. They are bold and vivacious, pursuing what they want in life with a cheerful determination. -The Enneagram Institute
I don’t have a cure for cancer, I’m not a saint and I’m far from perfect, but this, besides plogging, is what I can do to make the world a little better place. I ask you to reflect on what is important to a world united and how you can make a positive impact.
We all have something special that only we can offer the world and our community.
- Do Good.
- Be Kind.
- Make A Positive Impact
Stay tuned for more details as I start this new chapter of my life and we begin planning our trip to Peru courtesy of the B the Light Foundation.
