One of the reasons I haven’t updated in a while is because I wanted to keep up with the positive posts, but felt like life had other plans. I was waiting for something uplifting to happen. I didn’t want to complain again. I won’t go into the boring details, but more money trouble got me down (hence the big sticky post that won’t leave the front page) and that kept me quiet on the website front. Like the saying goes, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.”
But, you know what? Screw that philosophy. At least for me. I think I have to give preference to communication versus silence, as far as healing goes. You ever get a gut feeling that you’re doing something right? Well, I think I’ve got something here with this online journal. This place started as a way for me to grieve for my childhood and health. I plan to keep using it as my venting soapbox. BUT – I also want to open it up. I am more than cancer, after all.
I think I’ll keep the title, “Cancer, life, and me” but I’m no longer restricting the content to my illness. I want to keep expressing, since I have had such little practice. This place is about me and the stuff that interests me.
Thanks for reading.
