BC/AC

BC:     Before Cancer

Before the realization that I am mortal

Before putting minor annoyances in perspective

Before trusting my intuition

BC:     Before Cancer

Before noticing the feel of the wind

the sound of a dogs bark

the look of laughter

BC:     Before Cancer

Before believing in the strength that I have always had within me

Before noticing the sound of silence

Before enjoying being alone

BC:     Before Cancer

Cancer.

Shock.

Fear.

Hate.

Despair.

Hopelessness.

Strength.

Determination.

Peace.

Calm.

AC:      After Cancer

After the shock

After the fear

After the hate, the despair and the hopelessness

Breath

Light

Heartbeat

Strength

Strength I had never imagined I possessed

Purpose

Finding my purpose

Determination

To defeat cancer

To live my life, not exist in a life

To be authentic

Peace

Calm

Truth

Most people never get the chance to take a hard look at their lives.

Most people do not have to find a strength that is hidden in their soul, to survive.

Strength stirring their emotions.

Emotions that erupt like a hurricane, churning debris and trash.

Emotions that hurt can heal.

From the hopelessness

Strength finds the light in your soul.

The light that can save.

The light that can heal.
