Long term cancer survivors are always an inspiration to me. They give me hope that if they can do it, so can I.

Long term cancer survivors are not shy. They are never considered wallflowers. I have never met a long term cancer survivor who admits battling depression. I have only met long term cancer survivors who are considered phenomenal, who shine with brilliance when they enter a room and who are embracing their lives as though they are magical. Why do you suppose that is?

I have learned that these survivors have each observed themselves as being phenomenal, live their lives in brilliant color and find every corner of their lives magical. It is as if they are each on a momentous exploration; seeking something of value in every corner of life. They each are aware that their extended life is their opportunity to have fun with life, to be playful with life, and to enjoy life.

So given this observation, why would any cancer patient choose to live life as it once was? Why would we wish to have the same days as those gone by? Why would we want to repeat what very well may have brought us to this point in time facing cancer?

Should we consider the change a cancer diagnosis has brought us as a way of transforming our lives to become better? Should we try to live our lives differently than before the cancer? What would be the worst thing that could happen if we did change? More importantly, what could be the worst thing that could happen if we didn’t change? Wouldn’t you rather have a try at being phenomenal? Or how about giving it a try at living your life in brilliant color? Or how about making something, just one thing, each day seem magical? Isn’t your life worth surviving cancer? Make a commitment to welcome change into your life. After all, you are not the same as you were the moment you heard you have cancer. Make a commitment to create change in your life. Make some magic happen, become a person who shines with brilliance and become a phenomenal survivor.
