Last night I dreamt that I had my first dose of chemo. Not a great night's sleep, but it made me realize that cancer had gotten a hold of the best of me. Even at rest, I am thinking about it. I feel like if I walk around with a smile, no one will realize how scared and terrified I am, including myself.
This life God has given me has so much more in store ahead. I know it was created in His vision. I also know that if I don't stay mentally strong, I won't get the chance to experience the rest of it.
I can't let this circumstance steal my joy. Happiness is truly a gift from God and I think that many people underestimate how valuable it is. It's not living to others' expectations or maintaining wealth in money, but to be truly rich in joy and being true to yourself, those are the things that count in life.
What creates true happiness in your life? Take each day for what it's worth because tomorrow may never come.
