Something to look forward to…
I have found that having trips to look forward to has been a good way for me to stay in a good place emotionally. In talking to other survivors, they have confirmed that this also works for them. There’s just nothing like knowing that a fun time is in your near future and that you’ll be spending time with good friends and/or family. It gives me something to focus on, instead of cancer. It also reinforces my ability to be independent. But most of all, it’s very tangible proof that I am living a fun life filled with anticipation and new things. I have traveled more since my diagnosis in 2006 than ever. It really doesn’t matter what the purpose of the trip is, I have fun just being with those I love. I fly into Baltimore this week for the West Virginia mountains for a fun trip with 8 other survivors from New York, Texas and other states. I know the mountains will be so gorgeous and peaceful. Just what I need after a pretty trying month of dealing with too much loss. Thank you, Colleen, for giving this gift to me and the others.
What trips have you taken lately? Do you find that traveling is something you look forward to?
