A friend of mine who recently had a double mastectomy and chemo / radiation to fight breast cancer sent me this positive quote which she said helped her through her ordeal. I wanted to share it with all of you.
I am responsible. Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, I am responsible for my attitude toward the inevitable misfortunes that darken life. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have – life itself.
