Good morning to you all......I saw this on the web.....
Sometimes the smallest step
In the right direction
Ends up being the biggest step
Of your life.
Tiptoe if you must, but take a step

Hi Mo 232pookie
I like that thought regarding small footsteps !
jmp, they do lift me up and also set mind thinking on how to be kinder to myself.... like the last one I have just read that you posted....
"It's okay to do what's best for You" .... this is so true, but in reality I find this very hard, I am more 'so long as the people around me are okay, then I am okay - I do do this from time to time, when I have the motivation to do this, reading this one, it does seem to give me and I'm sure others the nudge to do 'whats best for us'.
Now then, 232pookie - this one got me thinking.... Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction made me think of a different ending...
Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction can end up being a far bigger step than running miles in the wrong direction.Taking that first step in the right direction, no matter how small, is the best step you will take. By WhatHappened aka GKW haha xxxxx
This thought for the day can only relate to my experience: No spread to lymph nodes and no chemotherapy needed, so very early stage breast cancer, but it may be helpful to ladies just diagnosed with the same early stages and ER+ with only needing radiotherapy and tablets (AI's) for 5 years.
"The fear of the word cancer and the fear of the treatment was by far worse than the actual 'journey' itself"
If I could have told my diagnosed self one thing 2 years ago it would have been: "Take it as it comes and believe that the worst case scenario won't happen to you"
