The Danger of a Dream
At that point in their lives, everything is #clear and everything is #possible. They are not afraid to #dream, and to #yearn for everything they would like to see happen to them in their lives. But, as #time passes, a #mysterious #force begins to convince them that it will be #impossible for them to #realize their #destiny. The Alchemist was the first book i read willfully, and i remember it changed my life back then. This #cancer has changed my life once again. Many people have messaged me to say that they believe I am strong and that I will beat this. Others have said that i’m not only fighting this for me – but for everyone who has been through this, will go through this and has not been able to beat this. I thank those people. I am smiling in this picture because I’m happy. Next week I find out what kind of cancer and #lymphoma I have. I might not be smiling on that day. But let this picure be what you remember of me – regardless of anything else that may be/happen.
Fear and Danger
In regards to what might happen; I think its important I explain something to those who care and to whom might not know me as well as they think they do – or even know Cancer. There is a difference between Fear and Danger. A good movie to explain this analogy in more depth would be “After Earth.” Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future, and of our lessons learnt in the past. It is a product of our imagination and our upbringing, causing us to fear things that do not, at present and may not ever, exist. That is near insanity.Do not misunderstand me.Danger is very real. But fear is a choice. I’m not afraid of this Cancer, but I do understand the dangers. I am however afraid of certain very new acquaintances being short lived; and for that, you will all have to forgive me and trust me when I say that you are very special to me. #smile #universe #alchemist #paulocoelho
