Saw this on a Twitter site a few years ago. I thought it was hilarious. A great attitude, as this person was running a marathon. That’s the whole point of life in general. You do the best you can with what you’re born with, acquire over the years, or have thrust upon you. This happened to me a few times and I’m still here, hoping for a better future for all of us. Positive outlook is a must. There is no point in having a bad attitude, it just makes you and everyone around you depressed.
A good example of this is my daughter. I’m not going into details, but currently, during stressful times when I would be tearing my hair out, she remains undaunted. She has the faith, the spirit, and determination that makes me proud. When I couldn’t be there for my husband during his last month she traveled back and forth from her family to the hospital, seven hours away.
When we all moved up here to Wyoming my health improved in some ways, and then I found out I had bladder cancer. I’ve graphically detailed this little adventure in my earliest blogs. I guess no one is really interested in discussing the topic, so I turned to other subjects. I wish other BC patients would ask and/or advise me, because I am a true survivor, with a grateful attitude. I would hope to bring the same to others with this condition.
I believe humor can be very helpful in situations that are put upon you. It’s one way you can control the outcome. Almost like thumbing your nose at fate. And then you win. I’m “just livin’ the dream”!
