Life will always have its ups and downs. How you deal with hardships and discouragement will always come down to your mindset. You can learn to change your mindset if you are willing to go through the personal growth necessary.
I recently had a young mother reach out to me. She has a similar breast cancer diagnosis and, cancer has spread to her brain. She, of course, is frightened and in panic mode.
She asked for my advice, wanting to know how to stop worrying about her situation.
I shared my experience with brain metastasis. There was relief in this woman’s voice when I explained my SRT treatment.
But her mind kept spinning, and I could tell she was still freaking out, and I was running out of suggestions to help calm her mind.
We can’t control our lives, and we certainly are unable to be in the driver’s seat when we experience a life-threatening disease.
We can do our best at finding the right doctor and treatments. Finding the necessary help, we may need for our children and families. Planning for our needs and wants regarding the end of life care.
But after all of that, there will always be a time when we have to let go.
Each person in their way and in their time will need to come to peace with their situation.
If you believe in a higher entity, this is the time put it in his/her hands.
Make the most of your life with those you love. Keep planning for the future as if you have all the time in the world.
Live to the fullest. Whatever it may be. Wishing you the best, Shari
