D252: WHAT IF WE MAKE CANCER OUR TEACHER NOT OUR ENEMY?

I’m proposing a new approach of facing cancer. See it as our wise teacher, not our hated enemy.

When we bring hatred into the table, there is a risk of getting caught up in the darkness.

The way you choose to face it becomes the way you experience it.

Choose to see our obstacles as blessings.

Before you know it, there won’t be anymore obstacles…just blessings.

Every day, I’m breathing is a blessing.

D251: FROM BECOMING BUDDHA TO BECOMING HUMAN – WHO YOU ARE IS ENOUGH

A buddhist monk serenaded me with her harp when I was in St. Vincent post ICU #truestory

I’m glad Beck my nurse was there to witness this too. Even I find this hard to believe myself. She hugged me but politely declined to have her photos taken.

I still remember what she said how cancer patients are becoming Buddha when they lost their hair. In a sense that is true. If we can learn, how to free ourselves from suffering. We can attain happiness

CAPTION THIS MONDAY

Help me come up with something funny to caption this pic.

Mine is : “The Hugging Theatre”

I laughed everytime I see this pic taken 21st December. This was only 2 months ago. I had no eye brows ๐Ÿ˜‚

I don’t know if everyone else is this happy to go into theatre.

You probably won’t believe that I was in a lot of pain.

This was the day, I was meant to get botox for my butt #truestory haha

Thank you everyone down in theatre at Peter Mac ๐Ÿ™‚

Professionalism with a smile and a hug is the best.

D250: WHEN LIFE GETS BUSY REMEMBER TO DO WHAT YOU LOVE AND TO BE WITH YOUR LOVED ONES

When you go through cancer treatment, your ability to plan is taken away from you. I remember how easily I can feel good one day and sick the next.

We can only take it one day at a time.

Life is simplified in that way.

We are simplified to a state of being.

When we can do many things, we can get carried away being busy with the doing.

There is a reason to be a human being not a human doing ๐Ÿ™‚

PS: You can’t see but I had 2 groodle (golden retriever poodle) coming towards me at the end of my video. They are so cute! I’ve never seen them before.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN LIFE AFTER….

Beautiful story to give us perspective of life. Leave comment of your perception after reading this. In a motherโ€™s womb were two babies. One asked the other: โ€œDo you believe in life after delivery?โ€ The other replied, โ€œWhy, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for…

HUGGING MEDITATION AT PETER MAC?

I have been wondering how I can contribute back to Peter Mac. Sometimes you ask and universe delivers.

It makes my day when I find this email from CEO of Peter Mac. I hope Dale won’t mind if I post this. It is a testament of a leader with a kind heart. Kindness has become a rarity in this world. Peter Mac is in good hands.

I am so grateful of her openness to embrace hugs. It allows others to do the same. (watch her message here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USDSmpX-RTg)

Hugging is not unprofessional. Being disrespectful is.
Always hug with respect. I always ask people if I can hug them before pouncing on them ha.

Sometimes, the word “professionalism” creates wall to be someone we are not and dampen authentic relationship which is important to create connection.

Sometimes my coaching session is done while sitting the swings, park bench or walking on the beach. Even over Skype there is always so much laughter. Others may see it as unprofessional but I take my work professionally when my coaching hat is on.

I say,”People are happiest when they have the freedom to be who they are.”

Connection is important and trust is created when you are being true to yourself and others. What goes on in the inside must match with your delivery on the outside.

Cancer treatment is a long and tough journey. We need that emotional healing as well as physical healing.

Those hugs from the nurses, doctors, physio, staffs definitely healing for me.

If we can make the journey easier with laughter, hugs, love and kindness….then why not?

If we are nice to the doctors, nurses and staffs, they will be nice to us. It’s a WIN WIN situation for everyone.

We also need to have the compassion that they are doing their best.

PS: I sent a reply. I wasn’t sure if she will reply or even say yes to hugging meditation at Peter Mac but at least I have asked. I have no fear of rejection anymore – life is short ha ๐Ÿ™‚

Kim asked,”Did you consult to your other friends to go through your reply first?”

I replied,”I was tempted but then it wouldn’t be me.” I am not the best writer and it may read differently. Even in person, sometimes I say the wrong thing that may offend people because it was lost in translation ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Press like/leave comment if you think running hugging meditation is a good idea?

This hugging meditation is based on the work of zen master Thich Nhat Hanh . It can also be a space to support group for other patients and carers (and staffs) while they are at the hospital anyway.

Have an amazing weekend everyone ๐Ÿ˜€
