Someone recently referenced that Claritin commercial where everything looks a bit fuzzy and then the film is lifted and everything becomes clear. It reminds me of my little cancer journey. Everything became very clear - what was important and what was not. I can feel, on certain days, slipping back into the petty and unimportant. Hard habits are hard to break I guess. 40 years of worrying about silly things and concentrating on daily tasks wont go away easily. I feel like I am constantly trying to maintain that clarity of knowing what really matters. What came so easily for a short time will take much effort to hold on to. I must remember to not let life get in the way of living.
