Confronting the cancer that is ignored

I woke up in the middle of the night…

And – was taken back to my excursion this past weekend, I liken them to conferences with the Almighty.


Aspiring to see my contradictions for what they are rather than denying their existence.

Searching out and cornering my hypocrises so that I can outgrow them, shows that my fear of their influence is waning.

Often the people and the experiences in our lives are reflective of that.

As I ruminate on this in the darkness of my room, I can’t help but to think of cancer, which is described as the rapid or abnormal multiplication of cells. Cancer is invasive and if left unchecked it will destroy the body it inhabits.

To guarantee survival it must be isolated, attacked and/or extracted, it cannot be ignored.

Subscribing to this course of action in my journey has not ensured the success needed to sustain my endeavors, ignoring what I know exists, in hope that it will dissipate of its own accord is laughable at best.

Thusly, it cannot endure and I must commit to being better than that. I must evolve, I must progress or die in the embrace of unapologetic, stubborn ignorance.

Conservatism (this is what I’ve always done) in the face of what I’ve known and what I’m comfortable with is not a badge of honor that I can commit to wearing anymore.

“This is me” isn’t an excuse – when “Who I should be” is the goal.

What or who is your cancer?

And – are you willing to undergo surgery?

    I like the idea of “conferences with the Almighty.” What a great way to put a new spin on it–makes me think of prayer differently.
