As with any New Year, whether you celebrate yours today or on January 1st, there's always an urge to reflect on the time behind you. Lately, I've been reflecting on my family's journey through cancer. It's hard to believe it's been 9 months since doctors informed us that my dad was battling stage 4 cancer.
"We're just waiting for a miracle," I recently told a friend. I'll never forget what he said in reply: "I believe every day has been a miracle." In that one moment, my perspective completely changed. It would seem that in my quest for a mind-blowing miracle, I had become blind to the tiny little miracles adding up along the way. I remembered that there are those who have lost loved ones within mere weeks of a cancer diagnosis. And so, in the face of a grisly stage 4 diagnosis, every day that my dad wakes up for battle is a victory won, is a miracle of immeasurable proportions.
Friends, have you ever experienced spiritual blindness? Are you, for instance, able to truly see just how far you've come from the past? Or do you struggle to find any significance in the years behind you? This is the subject of today's blog, the last part in my series '5 questions to ask yourself when you're not where you thought you'd be in life.' I cover the last two questions you need to consider, and trust me--you don't want to miss 'em. Read the blog here now and then share your insights in the comments that follow.
And remember: keep fighting. You've got this.
Love & Light,
