Two

Today is my second cancerversary. Recently I mentioned my cancerversary and someone asked why I celebrate the day I was diagnosed with cancer. I hadn't really thought that acknowledging it is celebrating it but maybe it is. Everything changed the day I was diagnosed. I changed. Toxic things and people and situations that had held space in my head and my heart for too long melted away. The things worth holding onto became crystal clear. That's not to say that I don't get distracted by bullshit now, I'm just better equipped to identify it and move on. Life is too short to waste emotional energy on people who aren't worth it (and you have to trust your gut to tell you who is worth it.) (Life is also too short to sleep on the ground, drink bad gin, eat diet ice cream, etc. The list grows.) So today I will celebrate clarity and strength and tenacity. It's been a tough two years but it's shown me I'm unbeatable. And I think that's worth celebrating.
