Who else would know I needed this today?! Who else but a bestie who has walked with me the last decade of life with her eyes and heart wide open. This bestie dug in and quietly stood by me through so much, including health restorative challenges and even lovingly foresaw how fatigued on every front I would be whether or not I attained my goal at my recent #Hope4cancer followup visit. How am I so fortunate to be encompassed by such powerful compassion?!
While I am truly triumphant in subduing cancer my way and naturally, it has taken much more and much longer than my A-type personality initially predicted or preferred. So, I also am grateful for the humbling maturation and growth that I needed to allow to root before my freedom could nestle in.
I needed this time back in LA to rest, breathe, collect my thoughts and refocus in order to muster up my warring ways to next take down the root cause that made cancer find place in my wounded neuroendocrine systems. And on this front, I am assured the mountaintop draws near… and I look forward to emerging from the new morning mist as the jubilant Jane I was nicknamed in years past.
I learned that receiving love and tender gifts of thoughtfulness is a beautiful part of the circle of life. For me, it’s not adapt or die, but adapt to thrive!
Thank you for every dear one who has touched me with their faith, love, resources, and authentic humanity…letting me hurt and helping me up again to face down every foe. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
I love you. Truly.
