So, I suppose this is a bit of a better me. Or perhaps a more tolerant me. I have decided to:
1. Not sweat the small stuff - cancer puts things in perspective. A lot of things that used to irritate me is now just water off a duck's back. (Goodness, one of my resolutions should be to stop using cliches.)
2. Spend time with people who make me a better person - I came across this the other day and it wouldn't surprise me to find out that a lot of people I know may be unhappy because they spend time with the wrong people. Take a look:
STOP spending time with the wrong people. Life is too short to be with anyone who sucks the happiness out of you like marrow from a bone. If someone wants you in their life, they'll make room. Never fight for a spot or sell yourself to someone who overlooks your worth. And, it's not the people that stand by your side when you're at your best, but the ones who stand beside you when you're at your worst that are your true friends." Dr C Northrup
3. Be more mindful. I will stop worrying about tomorrow and appreciate the beauty of everything around me today, right now. (For those who know me well, this is a challenge as I am an absolute worrier.)
4. Get over my crush on the 26-year old Robert Pattinson. It's taking too much time, he doesn't know I exist and if he did, he would be mortified to know that a 46-year old mother of three thinks he's cute.
