It finally feels like spring here. The garden is growing nicely, There is still a bit of a nip in the cool breeze but the sun feels glorious. A beautiful time of renewal.

I am feeling renewed as well. The last few days I have felt wonderful - and it is so wonderful to feel wonderful. I am sure you know that feeling - when all of a sudden you feel great and you want to take on the world. I am right there. I feel so strong going into this last chemo and I am confident that it will go smoothly. I am so excited that this is the last one. I am going to use my 5 1/2 weeks in between chemo and surgery to get myself as strong as possible. Feed my body fresh veggies and good food, take long walks to build up my strength. Be as strong as I can be so my body will heal faster after surgery. I have so many things to look forward to - sprouting hairs on my head, the moment the doctor tells me I am cancer free, teaching my first class back. I am looking forward to finding out what my new normal will be - I know it will be so much better than my old normal. I am looking forward to finally finding out what my full potential is - it is all so exciting.

I hope you can all hop on my train and get excited about finding your full potential - living each day to its fullest - and making life about living.

Hey Kristin, I look forward to knowing you during your 'new normal' era. Ya know, about 7 years ago I went through a very serious illness which immobilized me for 3 months. I have very few memories of it, but I must say the recovery though slow and painful was a great opportunity to put Humpty Dumpty back together again in a way that worked better than before. The new me is stronger, braver, kinder to myself, etc So I applaud your recognition of your new normal. Go girl!

WOOOOOO WOOOOOOOO ALL ABOARD! I am on that train with you K! I think you are right about a change a comin! And it is about time we all realized what is most important to us and that all this other stuff is just that stuff! It's amazing actually to change your thought pattern to 'I want to' rather than 'I have to'. It makes my shoulders a little lower throughout the day and keeps the smile on my face :-)
I want to work hard because I love it!
I want to spend more time with my family!
I want to enjoy the outdoors and breathe deeper!
The list goes on and on, but I tell ya it feels good!

So excited for you today! Asta la Vista Chemo!
Thank you God
Thank you Universe
The power is with you Kristin!
