The Calm After The Storm
After a routine mammogram showed an area of concern in my left breast, my life was quickly turned upside down. I found myself in the eye of the storm....a raging storm that I would weather for months. There were days when the clouds were dark and dreary but I tried to never lose site of my blessings. My blessings are what gave me all I needed (and then some) to make it through!
One of the things that I have learned most from "my storm" was how much it changed me as a person. I found strength and courage inside that I never knew existed. I found a sense of self that I cherish. I like the "new" me as I have a new respect for myself and my life.
So, when future storms come rolling in (and they will). I plan to put on my rain boots and dance in the rain. I promise myself to always, always look for rainbows. They're ALWAYS out there and well worth waiting for. I'll also remember we all have our storms in life, some are Spring showers and others are hurricanes. However, they always pass.....everything always does.
