It’s been a weird few years. It’s been a weird few weeks. Still processing a lot of junk, so it’s good I don’t have to have a Hot Take on anything, ha.
Reflecting on cycles and patterns and constants and changes and seasons.
So thankful to be here. There is so much to be thankful for ❤
October 2014 (not easy but the calm before the storm)
October 2015 (fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck)
October 2016 (so tired, slowly emerging from a cocoon)
October 2017 (ok, ok, here we go, slowly whew.)
I bought these boots 2 years ago, then promptly had to pack them away. my feet and legs got too jacked up from chemo for me to wear anything other than sneakers for a long long time. I’ve been healing, though. *** I took them out of the closet last month and this last weekend was the first time I was actually able to *wear* them. *** Yesterday, after a nervous morning, I had a clear mammogram. ‼️🤞Fingers crossed, in a few weeks I’ll get to celebrate 2 YEARS cancer-free. (really significant wrt my initial diagnosis) *** So thankful for these feet, to be able to stand and walk and dance almost like normal again. So thankful for my loved ones, J, #sparkycoupon and the rest of my extended friend-family. So thankful for sweet friends and acquaintances. *** Most of all, thankful for a second chance. Thanks for taking good care of me, friends. ✨❤️💪
