Day 2, WC

Write something that someone told you about yourself that you never forgot..

There are several things people have told me about myself that have made an impact on me, but if I had to chose just one. 

I have been told multiple times that I’m a spiritually strong person. Whether it be my compassion for others, my ability to see the best in people, or my willingness to help however I can. This has always been at the forefront of my mind.

I’m also trying to think of ways to help others through my writing, or just odd jobs on the Internet. I’m trying to incorporate my passion for knitting/crocheting and my spiritual abilities, ex prayer shawls and such. 

I’ve always enjoyed studying religion and spiritual practices, and have adopted a lot from Buddhism. I feel I have a lot to offer the world, I just need an outlet in which to spread my happiness. Writing is a great start in my opinion. 

I’ve also studied psychology, which is good in understanding people and how/why they feel certain ways. It also helps with raising my daughter, knowing the different developmental phases and seeing them at work is exciting and informative. 

So I guess that would be the thing that I remember the most from what others tell me about myself.

My wife has been trying to come up with ways to spend my time since my surgery, since I get bored real easily. So this Writing Challenge is one of the ways to occupy my time. Plus it gets me thinking of stuff to write about and I love writing. 

Beginning

I have a brain tumor. At least, that is what they have told me. It’s been several weeks now, since I’ve come to this realization. However, as time creeps closer to the date set for my surgery, I can’t help but think that maybe it’s not as simple as a brain tumor, but maybe it might be something more sinister.

As I sat in the ER, I was joking with my mom. Maybe I have super powers, maybe I’m transforming into something or evolving into something. The answer that came from my mother was, “Well, I guess you arent gonna go home.” Then she laughed. Yet, funny as that sounded, I was, in fact, not going home that night.

After only several hours and a CT scan later, the ER doctor came in my room. He did not carry himself as nonchalantly as before, and the cheerful grin was reduced to a mere worried look. That is when he told us that this situation was more dire that he had originally thought.
