A year ago I started writing a few posts about how I needed to focus on my health. But was very busy with Project Phoenix Rising.
I recently closed the project with a 100% success rate.
I was diagnosed with anal cancer years ago and have had a few tumors removed. A recommendation of chemo and radiation was suggested, but I respectfully declined.
Today I am facing a new health scare....Lymphoma for which I am scheduled to have a biopsy to confirm diagnosis.
I'm the strongest person you'll ever meet when I'm battling for somebody else, but when it's me, not so much.
I lost all motivation with my blog.
I’ve gained about fifteen pounds, but I’ve not been taking care of myself. It’s time to focus on my health again, and not on the scale.
I've realized how much of what you must do involves the word “self”. No accident there. To be self-focused doesn’t preclude being other-focused.
To be a healthy, balanced person, you must be both.
However, all the time I've been taking care of others, I've lost ground focusing on me.
I am going to have to start paying lots more attention to my wants and needs.
I began reflecting on my inner workings and am able to express my desires. Being self-focused means getting to know every inch of myself, understanding my "self" as best I can by staying connected to what brings me pleasure and pain and every feeling in between.
