When first diagnosed, it’s easy to believe that there will never come a time when life will feel normal again. It’s hard to imagine a day when the word “cancer” won’t feel like a weight you carry on your shoulders, making every breath feel hard and every step feel heavy.
Once through the initial shock and disbelief, the resiliency of the human spirit begins to overcome the burden of fear and sadness. Life becomes a second chance, a new opportunity to experience joy. You learn to laugh again. Let your sense of humor help you find the small moments to savor, even when the small moments seem buried in the midst of hard days. Open the door to your happiness. Laughter lifts the spirit and heals the soul.
