It has been awhile and honestly I have no good excuse other than I’ve been ENJOYING LIFE!!!! My last treatment was an Valentines Day (what a great day to remember each year :)! Everything went without any un-forseen side-effects which is fabulous! My skin got very, very red in the treatment area and is now peeling off. In some areas my skin was so affected that it turned dark, dark brown. It was very tight and painful at times, but I kept applying Aquaphor like a champ. I wrote Aquaphor regarding donations/supporting radiation patients as I went through over $60 of lotion just during treatment but still have had no answer. I’ll let you know if I do hear from them.
Since Valentines Day I have been trying to figure out how to carve my future. I started my own business as an Independent Consultant for a kitchenware company and that is going very well. However, in the mean time of growing my business to full time pay I’m analyzing what to do with the rest of my free time. Today I applied for a few jobs that are all over the spectrum of my experience including blogging, being a personal assistant and a literacy coach. I need something that is fulfilling both spiritually and financially. Nothing much, just kindness from co-workers, a sense of giving back and a simple salary — both of which are low requirements for me “Ms. I was the Director of a annual 1 Million Dollar Government Program, at an Ivy League College”. I’ve always set high expectations in my life, but this experience has taught me to grow in the path that I’m creating, learn from every moment, improve and analyze constantly. Whatever else I choose to add only needs to fill those simple requirements - feed the soul, feed the wallet just enough to pay the bills and take a few road trips. Maybe it was the cancer that taught me this, or maybe it just a spring awakening? Either way, I’m enjoying being stress free, enjoying my family, taking road trips with my husband, son and puppy and spending more quality time with family. So thank you awakening, thank you!
