Update exactly 2 months later

Interesting, I have just realized that it has been two months since my diagnosis and I take stock:

  • I have almost forgotten that I have cancer and really slacked off with the nutrition and alcohol consumption. Maybe due to the pre-Christmas drinks and dinners, alcohol is almost a daily occurrence now.
  • For the same reason, I believe that my stress levels have increased as well – there is too much to organize, think about, plan, buy, visit, write, clean etc. The beautiful state of Mindfulness that had been a part of my life recently has all but disappeared.
  • I don’t believe the cancer is gone yet (my two symptoms are still there), but neither do I think it has gone worse.

I promise myself that I will take more time and care again, saying no to some of the ‘oh-so-pressing’ issues. We are looked after and I have to get back into the right vibration to take advantage of the insights, advice and care that is all around me – and everyone else too.

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.

  1. I love that you are sharing with us what most of us are feeling at this time of year and making us aware that if/when life gets ‘off track’ we can always reroute and become more in tune of where we want to be. Xxx thank you Barbara. Love Lea
