Adjusting to changes

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

I am really adjusting to changes. I am accepting that I cannot control illness or outcomes. I'm more flexible to delays or rescheduling activities. Many of the things that I now value cannot be planned.

I appreciate little things. I am appreciative that my husband took me to surgeries in the nasty winter weather. He was not driving much due to his illness, but wanted to be the one to take me to key appointments, procedures and surgeries. I was so glad that he could be with me.

I am ending several activities in January. I will still be active, but not the president or secretary. I am volunteering and serving others. I have several good experiences ahead.

I am appreciative of all my friends - at church, in my groups, and online in Sparkpeople. You make difficult things so much easier to bear. I still feel blessed.

    I understand what you mean, I have learned we can not always control things especially change but we can do the best to adjust. You are very lucky your husband was able to be with you during your time of need. I know that is where he wants to be at all times as with you, you want to be there for him as well.
    I was very blessed to have my children with me during my surgeries and treatment. I don't know what I would have done without them. They are my "rock".

    God bless you. You are a great inspiration to us. Giving your time to others that need you.

    Have a great day.

    I have learned that too, having lived with stage IV cancer for 7 years now this month. I can't control my disease, but I can control my reactions. It's taken me a long time, but I have learned how to work around my disablities, and I have accepted that certain things I cannot do any more. I have not given up on life, I've just learned to adapt and change and do things differently.
