6 letters- 6 months ago

June marks 6 months…

CANCER.

The inevitable 6 letter word that was like vomit from my oncologists mouth. The day the life I was currently living was no longer going to be anywhere close to ordinary.

Everything I knew as normal came to a halting STOP.

I’ve been riding this roller coaster for a few months now and if I’m being completely honest it was easier to fight than I thought it would be. I would be lying if I said there weren’t days where the world felt dark and awful but somehow through this midst of it all life seemed to shine through TWICE as bright as it did before.

Planning summer adventures & trips between chemo… cute coffee dates & weeks spent with old friends…

School will await me when I’m ready- LIFE will be there for me to take on when I am well & ready.

Here’s to another 6 months of ups and downs- here’s to accepting everything life throws my way.

Sound familiar?

“You haven’t struggled until you’re drunk af trying to do winged eyeliner”

“If tomorrow isn’t a snow day I want to die”

“When you’re in class and its so boring you’d  stick needles in your eyes if you could”

“I rather die than go to work”

I understand that everyones struggles vary but at some point you have to draw a line. Not all things we experience are worth complaining about.

I know past experiences help dictate what someone finds difficult or awful but it’s important to understand people are fighting for their lives while someone else is contemplating death because the weather isn’t what they want it to be.

I believe it’s important to evaluate the things you find challenging before you decide to complain. [I plan on evaluating things before I choose to view them in a negative way]

Don’t accept ignorance because it’s mainstream- be the change you wish to see in the world.
