Last week, I was introduced to a new companion, a tech marvel called Optune. For simplicity, let’s refer to it as my new "hat." This gadget transforms me into a walking cancer combatant. The wonders of science never cease to amaze! Feel free to delve into Google to learn more about it.
This 'hat' is a loud proclamation of my new reality, a reality that I am at peace with. It's a reminder that we all carry something distinct within us. My distinction now has a visible emblem. Often, we shove our uniqueness into the shadows, fearing ridicule or judgment. However, your distinctive essence is precisely the magic this world needs.
By sharing our unique stories, we lend courage to others to embrace their 'normal,' however unconventional it may be. Normalcy is a fluid concept, defined by personal narratives rather than societal dictates. So here’s a shout-out to being unapologetically you because that’s nothing short of spectacular!
This 'hat' is not just my cancer-fighting ally, but also a conversation starter about celebrating differences, especially with children. Plus, donning a RoboCop-esque look does rake in some cool points, doesn’t it?
The initial adjustment to this device was a reality check. Imagine a three-pound hard drive tethered to your head, accompanying you wherever you go. It brought the stark reality of my situation to the forefront. It’s natural to venture into the realm of negative thoughts occasionally, but what’s crucial is to not set up camp there. Recognize the thought, dissect it with facts rather than feeding it with fictional fears. It’s a liberating exercise.
Reflecting on this journey, I am enveloped in gratitude. We are fortunate to live in an era bursting with technological advancements. This 'hat,' an innovation approved in 2018, is a testament to that. I am here, embracing this chapter, showing up every day with hope to inspire even one soul out there who may be grappling with their self-worth.
If my story resonates with you, remember, you are not alone in the struggle. Life’s turbulent waves hit us all, regardless of how unscathed someone appears. I share my narrative to ignite a spark of curiosity in you or anyone who feels adrift. For in the quest of wondering, you’re not lost but on a voyage of discovering magic.
Thank you for the continued good vibes! ❤️🙏❤️
Sending waves of love your way!
