I am back!…. not from the dead but from what seems a very long time. When I last wrote I had begun dealing with Prostate Cancer. I still am but radiation did work except for my legs. I am now having issues walking… I need a cane and my legs feel like they have 50 lb. weights on them all the time. The neurologist says I have neuropathy in both legs and feet. But thanks to physical therapy 2 days a week I am able to walk but the pain is constant. Today for whatever reason is a day I need to stay put and rest. Good News is cancer appears to have abated for now. I still have hormone therapy for 2 years. All Good.

So how are all my friends?…. I hope and pray that you are all well. It has been so long since we chatted. Lots of stuff has happened in the world and I assume your lives have changed. I ho[e and pray for the best for all of you.

I thought I would start a discussion about keeping a positive outlook as we go through our days together. It is sometimes hard for me to stay positive. I tend to want to wallow in my feelings of pain and not being able to walk. correctly and without pain. Today is one of those days. I need to just sit and it truly bothers me that I cannot move around pain-free and do things. It takes a lot of mind power to stay positive. So what do I do?

  1. I pray a lot. I ask Jesus to help me stay strong and positive. This really does work believe it or not. A simple prayer for help to stay strong gets me going again.
  2. I try not to dwell on the pain or negative stuff. I concentrate on positive things. I ensure that I keep my mind on the beauty that is around me and the blessings that I have been given.
  3. I try to list my blessings at least in my mind, sometimes on paper and that takes to negativity away
  4. I write music to let my feelings be heard and felt. This truly helps me. So if you guys are having these feelings I hope you can find something you love to do to help center your mind on the positive.

So these are the things I do to keep myself in a positive light. There are so many things that can give us negative vibes these days, and I wanted to share o of my thoughts on staying positive. I hope these items help.

As we move forward with my blog and podcasts I hope we can help each other to stay focused on the positive side of life .
