What was it that brought me joy? What did I like to do that was fun? Well, I had a list but my favorite thing was to invite my friends to my home for lunch or dinner. I’d have an after chemo luncheon! With the help of a dear friend, we sent out invitations to all those people who had reached out to me when they heard about my diagnosis. We invited them to lunch at my home and we invited them to bring a dish to share. Yes, I had several calls and messages asking me if I were sure about this decision and a couple of people who told me I was crazy but I assured them that this was what I wanted to do.
The question asked on that day of tests by that wonderful technician completely turned around my breast cancer treatment from scary and onerous to one that was nurturing and yes, fun! If one can turn chemo and radiation into a fun experience, I think she or he may only need to put two “funs” into their affirmation. In fact they may only need one “fun.” How many do you want in your affirmation? What’s something you are facing with trepidation that you might be able to turn around by finding some aspect that you can call “fun?”
