Peace Within

I am feeling good.  Just enjoyed a beautiful day with the family & Auntie Cole and her man.  And I’m not feeling sick or in pain.

Now I’m just praying my blood counts will be high enough to do chemo tomorrow.

Thinking tonight about how fortunate I am to be in a position to pass on the love that has been given to me.  Although I originally set up this blog to keep my loved ones informed about my day-to-day life dealing with breast cancer, it has now become so much more than that.  I recognize the power of words.  And the opportunity I have to use my situation to help others (as so many other cancer survivors continue to do!)

I want to share a beautiful passage that I tore out of an old Oprah magazine to post on my visualization board.  I read it each time I meditate.  It encapsulates so much of what helps me get through each day.

May today there be peace within.

May you trust God (or Buddha/or the Universe/or whomever) that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.

May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.

May you be content knowing you are a child of God.

Let this presence settle into your bones and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.

It is there for each and every one of us.

  2. Lovely verse. I’m glad you have found this calm zone of love and light. Good luck with the blood count.

  3. I have pinned this verse on my cubofficle’s wall. I love how every so often it grabs my attention and helps me pull myself back into the now. Terri, you always know how to be near even when hundreds of miles away and regardless of your circumstance, you always manage to send out a strong energy of optimism, love and hope to the world. I have eternal admiraton for you girl. Never change. xoxo
