Hidy Ho Journal & Friends!
I have Good News to report today: I got the report back on my tongue biopsy, and it is NOT cancer, like he had suspected. :-)
It is actually something much more mundane... oral candidiasis. Ick!
It's usually no big deal, except that it can get dicey for people with immunosuppressed systems. Then, it can travel to organs, or heart, or blood, or brain, etc. So, they are going to give me "stuff" to take 5 times a day, and all should be well soon.
I feel like I have dodged a bullet... that it is not too late for me to get my health back, and continue on my journey. I am very thankful.
I have often quoted Michael Beckwith here:
"In every life circumstance,
look for the Blessin' or the Lesson."
I've thought about that these last few days, waiting for the biopsy results. And even before I knew the outcome, I realized I had already received a benefit from this... I have been seriously thinking of my priorities, and Time Management. Yeah, again.
- There are the not very important things that I waste time on.
- There are the necessary things that I must do whether or not I want to spend time on them.
- There are the good things that I enjoy doing, but not necessary.
- There are the BEST things that would move me closer to my authentic self, and my ultimate goals.
I need to stop talking about Time Management, and start DOING it. And even writing that, to me sounds like a broken record. I think I've typed that very sentence before!! It's deja vu all over again... ;-)
My favorite mind coach, Dayne, wrote an excellent post on that very subject recently (HERE). Methinks I'd better pay attention.
Anyway, one thing I had to reluctantly give up, that I really enjoyed, was responding to each individual comment on my blog. I appreciate them so much, and I really enjoyed making that connection. But then I didn't have enough time to visit blogs, too. So, I had to choose. And I decided I loved blog visiting even more, and that is what I do with my limited time now.
I hope those of you that leave comments don't feel unnoticed. I truly love hearing your opinions and comments. It's like we are all on this great adventure together, and when we touch bases with each other, it's a reminder we are not alone as we travel that road.
