A dear Multiple Myeloma friend passed this along to me for she knows we are often asked this very question as though we are special and have the secret to continuing life after cancer.
Now I do believe this friend might have angel wings, because I wonder myself how she does it.
I often think when I see people with challenges that I’ve not or will never experience in my own life, what keeps them going with convictions, strengths and the will to inspire others, often times with love in their hearts and encouragement to share.
And then I had my answer.
There is no secret of how you do it, but accepting you must.
You discover parts of yourself that need to become stronger or ones you never knew you had.
I’m strong willed.
I want to give.
I want to live.
I want to stay positive.
I can handle this.
AND I MUST.
