Finally I have resigned ......I have moaned and stressed and worried as a lot of you will remember about what to do and agonised over making this decision for a very long time. I was treated badly by managers at my workplace and had a lot of problems but I didn't want to resign because I needed to hang on to my past - the past 'before cancer'. I thought that somehow if I could just keep doing what I had always done everything would be ok. But I have to now accept that this is not so - I have to move on - it is still hard and I am very nervous about my decision - the next few days, weeks, months will be strange, difficult but I am determined to make it work and 'Embrace my new Normal'
So to all of you who have read my blogs about my struggle to make a decision and my whingeing about work, thank you for your advice, patience and understanding. I am off to Phuket with my son next month to create some happy, fun memories for him and for me. (My daughter and I spent time away together earlier this year) When I was first diagnosed and they sent me the 'My Journey Journal' I thought it was a bit strange referring to getting cancer as a journey - but that is exactly what it is - a journey full of highs and lows and ups and downs and we just have to keep going, stay strong and embrace life - just deal with a day at a time. My love to you all, Willow xo
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
