One of the moms at my son's Little League All-Star practice made the comment that she didn't know me without cancer. WOW, that really struck me. [Tracy is also one of my son's soccer coaches and we like to hang out when the kids are doing their baseball thing] It struck me that I've had cancer for a while now. It made me think how I am different 'after' and how most of you didn't know me 'before'.
I'm different in little ways.
I'm not as outgoing. As in- This season I kept to myself during many of my son's baseball games. Not that I didn't chat with people, but I'm definitely not running for mayor. #thismaysoundlittlebutit'sabiggie
I also am not social networking as often. I'm spending less time on twitter and facebook. A LOT less time.
I'm not 'connecting' people. I'm a connector- when I meet someone I seem to know someone that can 'help' or has something to offer them. #Iknowlotsofpeople
I'm not working as much. This is a whole post within itself.
I go to bed earlier.
My nose drips. #nonosehairsleft #tissueupyoursleevelikeanoldlady
I don't snack. My appetite has changed and I also got Invisalign [the trays to straighten my teeth + you can't eat with them in your mouth]. #moreonthislater
I wear hats every day.
I'm a bit thinner. #IKNOWthisone'sgreat! #BONUS
I multi-task less. #probablyagoodthing
I've learned to accept help. #wellalmost
I would have been all over this "Oprah have your tv show thing". #Oprahcanwait
I'm me but without the me. The sass/spunk has tapered off. I've mellowed. #fornow
If you'd like to know me 'before' when all my spunkiness was channeled into a few endeavors...
Another place is my former blog talk radio show/podcasts called "The O Myth- debating + debunking life's organizing myths". It's a fun listen. click here
