I am pretty close on this one. Moving through cancer and marriage breakdown at the same time has led me on a transformational journey. I am grateful for so much in my life. Great friends, family, job, life. I am happy about the journey I am on and feeling pretty good about where it is taking me. I sometimes wonder if I could be developing like this without having the pain of cancer and marriage issues. I really do not think so.
Does that mean I am grateful for the cancer? Grateful for the poor treatment by my wife? Hmmmm. Not quite yet. But I am very close. I am grateful for having "woken up" and now I feel like I am on track to actually living my life. Instead of plodding along.
I think gratitude is key for me. I also think I will get there.
