One thing that I have learned in life is that challenges always come up. Whether it is associated to one’s job, health, even relationships. Those challenges and the decisions that we make end up forming who we are.
I once had someone say to me, “You know where you made your mistake?”
I stopped them right there. I told them that I have made no mistakes. I have made decisions. If I make a decision that does not have the outcome that I expected, then hopefully I will have learned from it. That lesson learned results in personal growth of who I am. I pointed out that if I had not made the decisions that I made in the past, I would not be who I am today. And who I am today is why they are in my life today.
So as we move on in life making one decision after another, we bravely face the day, and by taking one small step at a time, we can overcome those challenges. Like my bout with Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma. In my mind I can hear a statement that comes from the movie “Galaxy Quest:”
“Never give up! Never surrender!”
And, that I will! How about you?
Hugs and be well! Jane
