Today I read Proverbs 29 and, while a couple of verses really spoke to me, verse 20 really stood out. I learned a valuable lesson about another scripture close to my heart. First, let's look at Proverbs 29:20.
Another reminder not to compare myself to others, but to enjoy and rejoice in their positives attributes - and my own.
I'm slowly learning about this thing called living after cancer. It's strange. I still think about it everyday, though not as often. I asked someone, "How do I move on now? How do I 'live my life' now?" She said, "How did you get here? Did you drive yourself?"
Yes, I did. She told me, "You go to your car, drive yourself home, and live."
Feels more complicated.
Is it really that complicated? That big of a question. Can I be getting so lost in the question that I'm not allowing myself to live the life God gave me? Then I remembered this lesson learned from a childhood Christmas movie, Santa Claus is Coming To Town. Wow, I'm really dating myself, aren't I? :)
So, I'm living life by simply putting one foot in front of the other. I hope this helps other cancer survivors to live their lives as well.
For today, this is my truth.
