“You’re going to be okay.” Those words may sound hollow while in the middle of cancer treatment. Will life ever be the same? It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by doctor’s appointments, decisions to be made, bad news and apprehension. It’s hard to imagine that there will come a day when this will all be behind you: a day when you will feel good and happy.
A cancer diagnosis, along with the subsequent surgeries and treatments, is challenging to be sure, but there will come a time when treatment will end. There will come a time when the days you don’t think about cancer outnumber the days in which you do. You will be able to look ahead instead of remembering what’s behind. The wounds will heal and the scars will fade.
The journey from where you are now to a place of healing will be filled with peaks and valleys. Focus on today, find happiness in the ordinary and trust, “You’re going to be okay.”
