In my endeavor to simplify my life post FBC (F-bomb breast cancer), I am struggling. Hard. As I reflect on my efforts, I am amazed by how complex and full of “stuff” (both literal and psychological) life seems to be. Or at least mine is.
The HOTY (a/k/a Husband of the Year) and I are discussing this concept a lot lately. The conversations are hard because they mean making big changes in our life. Cleaning out. Purging things that we don’t use and refraining from acquiring things that we don’t need.
This is an excellent process, though. In fact, I find that in this recovery period, cleaning out is exactly what my mind, body and soul need. And everyday I do so, I feel a little lighter and have a little more clarity. As if everything is beginning to come together again.
While I’m sorry that it took FBC to learn this lesson, I’m sure grateful for this Silver Lining.
