We know what we are, but we know not what we may be.

William Shakespeare

Any thing is possible. That is what I always tell my kids. If you can dream it, you can do it.

Positive? Yes.

Optimistic? Yes.

Ironic, as I am not exactly an optimist.I am a moody, melancholic neurotic … on a good day.  I put beautiful things out into the world because I need to make myself focus on beauty. People often tell me how prolific I am. That is because I have to be, it is necessary for me to create in order to stay sane (happy). I’m not sure if that make sense.

I spend so much of my time worrying about stupid things. I waste so much time on that. Worrying. I thought that my health problems would wake me up.  Shake me up. I thought that I’d have a Scrooge re-birth … I’d start seeing everything with rose coloured glasses … but that didn’t  happen.  (Well, maybe at first, but it didn’t last).

Don’t get me wrong, I am grateful …  I am.   I am so grateful. I am so lucky.

The problem is, I can’t help but think, “when will my luck run out?”

Having a mastectomy has not given me a new lease on life, it has kind of made me more afraid. I mean, they found it in both breasts, where else could it be lurking?    I am who I am, the same as before, a worrier.   I have not had any huge ah-ha moment during this huge life changing experience.   That makes me feel guilty and yucky, like I missed the point or I missed the life lesson within this whole ordeal.

My biggest challenge in life has always been to stay in the moment, to try to be present, and it still is. I can’t know the future, and that is probably good.  I will continue to create. I will continue to try to stay in the moment. I will continue to try not worry.  I will continue and I will  remind myself,  I GET TO continue.  That does make me feel happy …even if that feeling is fleeting.
