2 year cancerversary

Last Saturday I celebrated my 2 year cancerversary! I can't believe it's been two years since I started this journey, and I've learned so much from it. I was thinking about it yesterday and came to the conclusion that:


I've learned so much, but especially how to appreciate things. I really believe what I wrote above. I also believe that it's important to appreciate things, even when you aren't particularly comfortable. I keep thinking about when (eventually) I die. I do believe in an afterlife. But I keep wondering (because "they" say it's so amazing), what it is in heaven. Is everything really more beautiful and incredible, or is our capability to appreciate more beautiful and incredible? Those are the things I like to wonder about when we go to heaven, instead of all the other things. That's the reason when anybody has asked me if I'm scared through this whole experience, my answer is "no". Why worry about the things we don't have to?

Anyways, I am so appreciative of all the support I've gotten through this whole thing. I am so thankful that I am so healthy right now. And I'm especially grateful that this trial has opened my eyes to see beauty in everything. (Well almost everything, I'll probably always hate hiking, but the mountains are beautiful).

I can do hard things!
