Lately, I have been experiencing others in my universe that are far too quick to jump to conclusions, seem to accept the worst or appear to be so negative that they assume the worst case scenario.
That behavior makes me batshitcrazy.
But pondering this has opened my mind and reminded me how I grew to live my life. I always try to figure out the best scenario, of what could be, what could happen, how I can carve a good ending or how I can tackle what has come my way. For me, I seem to be able to see the silver lining.
I think being diagnosed with cancer started my journey. I did not let cancer intimidate me, but instead I became inspired to do something about it. I support non-profits that focus on cancer research, more specifically breast cancer research.
After moving to Boise, I grew professionally, spiritually and personally. Boise has been my solace, my home now, my place. I have found my voice to speak out about injustice, women’s issues, the environment and most of all, those in need in my community. I have found a place to worship and a place to meditate. I have discovered the woman I was meant to me.
You see, I just keep plowing forward until I get past the hurdles that have come my way. Last year I had a few health scares. But you know what? They were all treatable or not life threatening, even though it could have been. I caught a break by catching things early. I knew something wasn’t right, but I did not think anything was particularly wrong.
I simply cannot fathom living in fear.
I wish I could say I feel sorry for those that allow fear to rule their lives, but I just can’t. That is their choice, not mine.
Look at my picture. The glass is always full.
Remember that and you can change your mindset, too. It is all about attitude.

It seems we have a lot in common. I too am a breast cancer survivor. Last year was a very hard year for me as well as I too had some health scares, from my thyroid, to breast, to finding a hole in my heart that luckily all turned out fine . But you are so very inspirational. I am trying hard not to live in fear. Even as I am now waiting for the results of a follow up mri. Keep on inspiring me!
This really answered my problem, thank you!
