One of my friends was just diagnosed with cancer.
Actually, she got the diagnosis a month ago, but she's still waiting to find out what kind of cancer it is so they can start treatment.
Can you imagine sitting with the knowledge that you have cancer, even just for one day, and not being able to attack it?
My friend and her family’s whole world came crashing down when they got that news, and I expect, all the pent-up “shoulda coulda woulda worry clutter,” too.
Because there’s only one thing that matters now: there is a friend, mother, daughter, aunt, and wife who is about to start the fight of, and for, her life.
So, what a waste of time and embarrassment that I’m stressed that I didn’t get far enough through my to-do list, didn’t exercise, or didn’t book that commercial.
I’m trying to keep it all in perspective.
