It's the day before. I have so much to do, but I'm feeling pretty good about it - it'll keep my mind off the fear and stuff. I've gotten used to that, for the most part, though. My friend sent this to me and I'm going to post it here since it's pretty good advice no matter what you're going through:
Sooner or later you'll encounter a crisis in your life, and how you meet it will determine your future happiness and success.
Since the beginning of time, everyone has been called upon to meet such a crisis. Close scrutiny will show you that most "crisis situations" are opportunities to either advance or stay where you are.
Indeed, most changes in your life will be due to either "inspiration" or "desperation."
Personal growth is the process of responding positively to change. Whatever comes your way, give it meaning and transform it into something of value.
A precious stone cannot be polished without friction, nor humanity perfected without trials.Sounds pretty good to me. ;) Cliff's notes version: "The only way out is through," as illustrated below:
It's me, Kevin, but with a brain tumor. Disclaimer: I have a very dry and twisted sense of humor. This is a scary situation. The jokes ("tumor humor") could be a little dark from time to time. I intend to keep this rather interesting for you, but if I get a "how could you SAY that?!?" response from you, know it's just, well, I hesitate to use "gallows" humor, but I don't have better phrase for it. Enjoy, and thanks for your support through this time.
