Keep your head up

Keep your head up

Having cancer taught me the following:
1.  Take one day at a time
2.  If the day is too long, take one hour at a time
3.  If an hour is too long, take a minute at a time
4.  If a minute is too long, take a deep breath 
5.  If a deep breath is too hard, open your door and take a walk
I found myself walking a lot, sometimes for hours.

life is beautiful 
sometimes we need to 
look at it through new lenses
feel it with recharged emotions
