Establishing a New “Normal”

Life After Treatment


This is my first week since being diagnosed with both colon and breast cancer that I haven’t had a doctor’s appointment of some kind. The completion of chemotherapy feels both like Yay! and weird at the same time.  

I’ve been spending my time writing, napping (still have fatigue) and today thinking about what’s next in my life. I’m wide open and want to find my purpose and go for it, except I’m not sure what that is. Should I establish a freelance writing career or go into corporate marketing? Maybe explore a totally different opportunity I hadn’t considered. I’ve been so focused on treatment and fighting my cancers that I’m not sure where my road leads.


I’ve got choices, which is a blessing, but I want to make sure I’m not wasting a moment of my life pursuing something that’s not going to grow me as a person and help me realize my dreams.


I see lots of paths in front of me and I’m standing in the forest trying to figure out which road to travel. Maybe I should follow my own advice. Live in the moment, and breathe. The inspiration will come to you.
