False Evidence Appearing Real is not a currency I deal in anymore.
That reality became glaringly obvious as I was sitting in a waiting area at the Princess Margaret Hospital, a world renowned cancer centre. I was waiting for the mammogram and ultrasound reports to confirm (or not) the first tests taken at MedCan a mere 20-days before. I could have reacted in many ways, but to be completely honest, I was calm, serene. I know that right now I am showing up and living my best life every day. There is nothing I would change or improve. If the tests show I have cancer then I’ll deal with it. If the tests show I do not have cancer I will be grateful to focus my energy on other things.
The radiologist did not like the second ultrasound so came in and did it himself. There was no need for a biopsy. He believes it’s scar tissue from my breast reduction a few years ago. We’ll simply monitor it and I’ll go back in 6-months.
How do you overcome fear? You face it and walk through, head up, determined and resilient.
It has been my experience that on the other side of fear is joy. Every time.
