As I have shared before the Friday after my Chemo seems to hit me the hardest. This has been the pattern for the last three rounds. Thankfully I only have one more Friday to feel this WONKY. After getting Sully off to camp and gratefully being able to come home and rest for hours and hours I finally got a change of scenery and hit the couch. I just logged on (my home page is www.greatday.com) and had to share what was awaiting me as it really captured my thoughts and feelings for today.
Friday, July 11, 2008 -- Even though your morning may not have been productive, there is still much you can accomplish in the afternoon. Even though you've suffered some setbacks, there are still plenty of options for moving forward.
Even though you may disagree with what someone has to say, you can benefit greatly from understanding that person's point of view. Even though you find yourself in difficult and challenging circumstances, there is much value for you to create.
Even though you may feel like quitting, you have what it takes to keep going. Even though the goal seems far away, every step brings you closer.
Even though there are plenty of reasons for you to feel sorry for yourself, you can choose instead to renew your determination and enthusiasm. Even though your path is filled with obstacles, you can truly enjoy the sense of accomplishment that comes from successfully moving beyond each one.
Even though darkness may at times surround you, your light can shine more brightly than ever. Even though you may occasionally grow weary, there's always a way to renew and re-energize yourself.
Even though the road has its twists and turns, the journey is worth the effort. Keep going, keep growing, keep learning and loving and living with all the richness your precious life deserves.
