Life is a process. Laundry is a process. Dishes are a process. Getting gas is a process. Getting ready for the day is a process. All throughout our life we must endure processes.
Overcoming Cancer was no different.
First you must find the Cancer. Tests, Colonoscopies, Scans. Once you find the Cancer, more process. Get a port in your body for easy chemo access. One round of chemo for me was six months going every other week on Mondays. Go home with Chemo bag. Wednesday go back and get bag removed. Next process. Side effects. Sometimes hair loss. Sometimes nausea or sickness. Lose taste in things because the chemo makes everything taste like metal. Take pills. Go to Yoga. Meditate. Power of Positive thinking. Process.
When a friend of mine mentioned this idea to me when I was struggling through the Cancer journey, it all made sense to me. It was easy for me to understand. It was easy for me to grasp. It was a concept I could adhere to and make sense of.
When I was down I remembered the process.
When I was sick I remembered the process.
When I was scared I remembered the process.
One year later and I am officially in Cancer Remission and I carry this idea with me still. How do we overcome the obstacles in our lives? Process.
Whatever you are fighting, whatever you are struggling through, whatever battles you are facing, whatever anguish, strife, trail or adversity you are enduring right now, I challenge you to think about The Process. What process are you going through to become who you really want to be? What process can you relate to that will get you through this? What lies have you told yourself through the years that you are ready to let go and what process do you need to go through to release them?
Life is a process. Learn it. Love it. Live it.
