ts Posted June 23, 2011 Share Posted June 23, 2011 Do you have one? I had the weird experience of having my oncologist and my infusion nurse ask about this Monday. I did a search here and see that Eric uses the term occasionally. My answer, is that I don't have one. I must have been really selfish before my dx. Even though I worked way too many hours at times, I did a lot of what I wanted - ate good food, gardened, volunteered for good causes, did good work, read, made friends, travelled (of course, there are still lots of places to go, but there always would be.) Surprisingly, since it happened so late, I even met a good man (and has that ever come in handy!) Always say I did not need the wake up call to make big changes in my life. Maybe I already understood the impermanence of life and was living in the present? I am still happy to be here to eat the first strawberries from the yard, to see the flowers bloom, and to enjoy the rare blue sky. What about you?
