August 2, When Things Fall Apart: Richard Deming I continue my recovery after a training ride on a beautiful Saturday morning in July, in which a bump into a bicycle resulted in me crashing on the road.
I laid unconscious, with ten broken ribs, a broken clavicle, a fractured scapula, a punctured lung and a hemopneumothorax. This gave me ample time to reflect on this bump in the road.
My bump in the road is nothing like a cancer diagnosis but it was certainly a wake-up call. Sometimes, I have fear and trepidation. Just as cancer survivors have on their journey. I wonder, is trekking in Tibet beyond my reach?
What if I fail? So I began again, in preparation of the circumambulation of Mt. As I heal and reflect, I know others are facing worse adversities. We know joy because of grief. We know the highs because of the lows.
We know light because of dark. With this wisdom, I can illuminate my own life and the life of others. I have learned that, life becomes deeper, richer, and more emotional when we lean into the difficulties.
We learn to put priorities into perspective. Difficulty teaches us what we are capable. We realize the strength within, and that strength grows into resiliency. We cultivate a sense of gratitude for the help and support of people, and a second chance at life. From gratitude, compassion and generosity blossom, with a motivation to pay it forward.
Above and Beyond Cancer gives the opportunity for survivors, caregivers, and the community to cultivate resilience, compassion, and gratitude. Life will fall apart, and we learn to put ourselves back together again. Just as I am learning, slowly, gradually, surely, to take on a challenge, one step at a time.
