Continuing the month of October highlighting Friends and Family this week.
At the beginning of my cancer journey some chose to walk out the door and go on with their lives. Those aren’t my people. Some chose to stay for a while, then walk out when things got too real. Those aren’t my people. Some never entered for the reason of fear. Those aren’t my people.
It took a while to realize who ARE my people. Those who stayed, nurtured a friendship, and became family. My Soul family, those who rally around me in my life. They may not be connected by blood, but instead by energy and essence. They bring unconditional love and support at the perfect times and understand and share the same purpose and mission. I am so grateful for the beautiful souls, that are my people.
Cancer at a young age is difficult, but for those that chose to walk out, I understand. I understand that to see me, you see you. You see the possibility of facing your own mortality. You see yourself in me. I forgive you and I forgive me. I forgive me for thinking and wasting energy on believing I wasn’t enough, or at times too much. I’ve had to let the hurt go and relish in the love others so freely give.
My eyes are wide open to those that make my life better. Friends that have become family and my family whose love has not wavered thru the past 13 years. I choose to celebrate and acknowledge my soul tribe. Thank you to all who make my life better by your presence and love. Thank you for staying strong and steadfast in my life. You are the reason I wake up everyday and feel truly blessed.
