It’s been such a touching week so far as so many people are reaching out to say hello and see how Barb and I are doing and I’m happy to say we are doing well! I’m feeling better and Barb is the perpetual ROCK!
From day one it has always been in our collective headset that we are going to join together and do whatever it takes to endure this medical journey.
It has not been easy! The days after surgery when my head was swollen to the size of a NBA basketball and the light fixtures in the ICU were dancing in 3D technicolor due to pain killers was not fun! But we endured!
I just keep coming back to the thoughts that are dominant in my thinking every day as we keep on battling through the side effects of the radiation like the loss of hearing and a paralyzed vocal cord. Our thoughts are we will get through this!!!
I’ve learned from a book called SEARCH OF ETHICS by Len Marella that from a psychologist point of view we tend to become the kind of person who occupies our thoughts and aspirations.
Here is a quote from the book that I would like to leave you with as the reflective thought of the day that adds some color to that point of view:
WATCH YOUR THOUGHTS, THEY BECOME YOUR WORDS
WATCH YOUR WORDS, THEY BECOME YOUR ACTIONS
WATCH YOUR ACTIONS, THEY BECOME YOUR HABITS
WATCH YOUR HABITS, THEY BECOME YOUR CHARACTER
WATCH YOUR CHARACTER, BECAUSE IT BECOMES YOUR DESTINY
Have a great day and keep on Watch!
