I've felt better today than I have in about a month. I had more energy, less pain and an appetite. I really, really believe this chemo is working and I'll be running a marathon soon. I thank God for a good day.
Being sick gives me time to reflect. Today I was reminiscing about the past and how I use to let small issues at work and in my personal life affect my attitude and the way I went about life. Now I'm starting to look at what's important in life which is God, family, friends and living life to the fullest. Your attitude or outlook on life is what you decide it will be. We shouldn't let a person, a job, or a situation affect what's really important.
You make the decision.
"My brothers and sisters, you will face all kinds of trouble. When you do, think of it as pure joy.Your faith will be put to the test. You know that when that happens it will produce in you the strength to continue. The strength to keep going must be allowed to finish its work. Then you will be all you should be. You will have everything you need." James 1:2-4
