In so many ways this year has been tough.
So many changes, so many questions, and so much wading through the vast unknown.
And now, all of a sudden, I feel like I am on the “other side” of the surgery and all the “questions” that have occupied my head, heart, body and soul.
Being on this side feels like a new life, another chance, a re-start.
I know this feeling all too well.
Every health issue I have ever had has served as a kick in the pants. A reminder that we are here to love, we are here to learn, we are here, period. So just do what you want to do already!
Today I found a surprise in my suitcase. It’s a wine opener with a message that opened up my heart as soon as I read the words inscribed on it:
No Turning Back
It was placed there by Jaynane, in her signature style of heart-warming surprises.
She has been reminding me of this ever since we got the good news of my cancer-free clean bill of health — there is no turning back.
And she’s right.
There is only moving forward.
That is the precious present of time, although it comes with a double-edged sword that swiftly moves us forward whether we are ready or not.
So tonight I ask… if you know there is no turning back, how will you move forward?
What will you do next?
