And sometimes the greatest wisdom comes from telling ourselves the story! Yes, the last week has its own story, but it is over, and I just do not feel like telling it any more. Unless I choose to tell it. I do know that I can tell the original story that began in 2006 much better today than ever before. Maybe, just maybe, that is because I know how that story ended, and I have learned a lesson that I do not want to repeat. I think that is what is called “wisdom”.
What is this all about?
A week where I let go of my personal wisdom for a few days to listen to a test result that doctors and all were ready for me to admit to more testing, to being in the hospital, to dying of cancer. Oh my God, where was I in allowing that to happen. Well, I will tell you: It was fear! And FEAR is a great element for a story, but not for me.
So how did this all end? I will tell you a short story:
- I got the test result
- I held fast to a belief based on past experience
- I “listened” to the doctor
- I went into myself with education and more
- I once again remembered the past experience
- I trusted my own judgment
- I changed my mind!
End of story: Brave, strong woman tells all in the medical profession to take a flying leap! And life goes on…
