Hi guys, i just wanted to ley you know that I am taking a break from my YAC related work. After a long hard think, I have made the decision to take 12 months off and see what happens and what life may
be like without thinking about cancer. I have never done this and for
the sake of my sanity (and all those around me!) tells me that its time to do it.
I would love more than nothing to be able to work in the YAC field, and to make this decision at this crucial point in time for the YAC movement, pulls me apart. But I must take this time out to see if I really belong or whether I need to move on, or just change a few things around. I think there is no better time than right now to do this.
Its been awesome getting connected with some very inspiring and lovely people here and I say thanks for your many efforts of support and friendship.
If you have any queries about this group, please have a chat with Felix from the Cancer Council, as he will oversee the group whilst I am on my cancer free holiday :)
Keep conneceted and take good care of yourselves!
all my best wishes,
nikki you will never be able to stop thinking about it
you may bury it and put it where the past is
but the 12 months may see you do a course or become involved with a charity group
or even go on a holiday
I one hundred percent support your decision to take a year off cancer-related work and see if there are other opportunities in life you may wish to take up. You deserve medals and honours for the work you've done helping the YAC community, and now is the time for all of us to get right behind your decision to see what else the world has to offer you, and to help launch your boat on this new voyage of discovery :)
Bon voyage Nikki !!
Hi Nikki,That is fantastic! I imagine it was a hard decision for you, but there must come a time when you do things for yourself and yourself alone. I recently had my first moment where I forgot that I had cancer and it was so liberating. I forgot that I was diagnoses, I forgot about the surgeries and treatments and it was great, it helped me enjoy being in the moment and enjoying life. Thanks for all your support and kindness. Good luck with whatever you choose to do ( :
