i will be positive

With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.
– Eleanor Roosevelt

I will be positive.  I have my life.  The rest will settle out somehow.  I have put my feelers out to change my job and considering I have at least radiation and possibly chemotherapy ahead of me, some might think I am quackers doing this, but for my sanity, inner peace and health I must.

I receive no benefits, nor proper vacation or sick time.  I am a professional woman and some days I feel like I am in a 19th century sweat shop.

I deserve better.

I will not fear the unknown.  After all, I have now faced cancer. It’s all uphill from there, is it not?

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. – C. S. Lewis

Today is June 29th, the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul…also my late father’s birthday.  Happy birthday daddy, we miss you still.  I remember when I was younger, oh so much younger this was the time of year when I had my first trip abroad.  I was outside Strasbourg in a small village called Stutzheim on this day in summer of 1979.  Those memories have lasted this long and were extremely positive.  They will be my inspiration today…along with happy thoughts of a father who was pretty damn cool.

Go forth and smile, people.  It’s never too late to change the world….
