The limitations of cancer

Yes I know that sounds like an oxymoron but I just came across a definition which puts into words many of the things that I think about cancer.  I came to the conclusion a while ago that I wasn't going to give cancer any more power over my life than it already had.  It has taken a lot already and I am not prepared to give it more than I absolutely have to.  It craves the power to control everything about us, and it succeeded with me for a while.  Then I learned to push it away each time it tried to return to the centre of my world and, although I know it is still there on the edge, now it is not at the vortex of my mind.  After all cancer has its limitations and although it may have control over some of our cells it ain't got them all.  Mindfulness has helped me regain control and focus on this exact moment; a moment in which I am safe, well and peaceful.

Cancer is so limited…

It cannot cripple Love
It cannot shatter Hope
It cannot corrode Faith
It cannot destroy Peace
It cannot kill Friendship
It cannot suppress Memories
It cannot silence Courage
It cannot invade the Soul
It cannot steal Eternal Life
It cannot conquer the Spirit
