D92: THE ART OF BEING PRESENT

Live in the now.
Ride your low,
Ride your high.

I am where I need to be,
…right now

No rush for the future
No regret for the past

A grateful heart
for the gift of present.

Note:
My energy level is still quite low.
My bed is my bestie this week but I am doing okay.
Everything is in slow mode even my speech.
Chemo brain makes you forget words too.
But the important thing is to always do it from the heart.
I hope you can feel the love.

It is in the darkest night,
we see the brightest star.

It is in our deepest pain,
we see our greatest gift.

In solitude,
I have found myself.

I
AM
LOVE

Blessings xx

D90: ONE BREATH AT A TIME

For once, take five and feel alive.

Everyday, we can still greet our day with this very one breath of life …is a happy day.

In memoriam of Scott Dinsmore, a truly living legend.
Thank you for giving me the space and community to do the work I love.
Two years ago, I delivered my first seminar as a life coach at Live Your Legend meetup. I am forever grateful to have met amazing people in your LYL community. Your spirit and passion will keep on living Scott.

A silly question many of us take for granted. But do you realise there is only one breath away between life and death?

I remember vividly when I tried to rescue this poor little bird on my morning walk. I called it Eddy. I walked passed him and saw ants already covering him ready to devour his dying wings. I could see his eyes were open helplessly. I couldn’t help but to pick him up and rescue him from those ants even if I have no clue what to do next.

I hold it dearly in my hand. I looked at him with sadness hoping he can make it. My mind ponders as to who to call for bird rescue. I have never done anything like this before. I kept watching him with love as I brushed those ants away from him. I can only hope he knows that he is not alone anymore.

It was not long before Eddy taught me THE GIFT OF LIFE IS ONLY ONE BREATH AWAY. I felt his body went stiff and coldness touched my hand. For the first time, I experienced death in front of my eyes. In my very own hand, the very last breath of living.

From that moment onward, I know how precious that one breathe of life is. Thanks to Eddy, I’ll always be grateful for each breath that I take.

I buried him with tears and thank him with love for giving me a precious life lesson on the brief moment that we met. Universe is my greatest teacher.

Be grateful for this precious breath of life 🙂

Happy Monday!

Blessings xx

D89: BE GENTLE WITH YOURSELF

Remember to always be gentle with ourselves especially in bad days.

Give as much time for your body to recover. This is the best time to learn about PATIENCE and most importantly to have COMPASSIONATE SELF-LOVE.

If one spoon is all we can eat then that is okay and that is enough. You are doing the best you can. Protein drink is your best friend when you can’t eat. Aim to eat small portion more often and remember to hydrate.

TIPS: I started a new habit to drink everytime I go to the toilet to rehydrate. It seems to be working in keeping headache away. Before chemo, I’d sleep through the night. Now, I’d woke up at least 3 times a night.

Take it one breath, one step, one moment at a time.

My parents’ friend came down for a day just to visit me detouring from their Sydney trip before going home to Indonesia. Bless their soul. I haven’t seen them for years. They said I’m like my late dad…always smiling which is nice to hear 🙂

We had lunch together. I seem to always eat more when there is company. I’m still feeling sick but laughter makes you feel better. It was really nice that they pray for me too.

I’m really grateful to have so many kindness and kind people in my life. May your day filled with kindness too

D88: “BE IN TUNE WITH YOUR BODY”

During our trial times is the best time to be one with our body.

I get a bit teary recording this because last round after blood transfussion I had more energy and for that split moment I forgot that I have cancer. Recently, I got asked if it bothers me that I can’t do all the things I used to do. Those who know me knows I have very active life. I believe many cancer friends are confronted with this new change too.

But never fear, have faith in your body and yourself.

Our body will keep healing to LIVE
Our soul will keep on growing to LOVE
…until our last breath.
TO LIVE and LOVE is what truly matters
even for a short moment that we are given.

To my cancer friends know that you are not alone in this trial times.

Blessings, hugs and love.

PS: I forgot that I have 6 not 5 anti nausea medication.
– Palonosetron (starting this round). It meant to last me for 5 days. I’m not taking granisetron anymore.
– Emend
– Dexamethasone
– Ondansetron
– Cyclizine
– Domperidone
