27 Nov Thanksgiving 2020
This year has been one for the ages. We find ourselves amid a pandemic, political strife, and social unrest. So, Thanksgiving 2020, where are your emotions? As I think back on all the things that have happened to me. I have one thing to be very happy to say. I’m cancer-free. In December of 2019, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I have attended and participated in many charity events that raise awareness and resources for cancer. And found myself being the one asking so many questions about what’s going to happen to me. My first thought was I have two daughters that I have to share this information with them.
Next was where do I go from here. Thanksgiving 2020 was far from my thoughts. I decided the options that were in front of me were not what I’d hoped. So, I opted for surgery. I wanted it out of me. March 9, I had my scheduled my procedure, and I’m happy to say success. My doctor was the best. Thank you, UroPartners; they saved my life. Now recovery sucked. I know it was one of the most challenging things I’ve ever experienced in my life. Fortunately, I have a great support system that got me thru it all.
Now the country went into lockdown about five days later. The business that I love so much was now in limbo. Without being around people, my company Charizma Entertainment faces an uphill battle to maintain and push forward. Again Thanksgiving 2020 not on my radar.
We do only a handful of events over the summer, and the fall isn’t looking better. Not to mention freshman year in high school for my girls will start online, which brings me to 1 of my favorite holidays of the year. Thanksgiving 2020. Here’s my list. I’m alive and here for my girls, family, and friends. I have an opportunity to build the business I want. ( Thank you, Jorge Lopez) Lastly, to have the patience that will allow for success in whatever I choose moving forward. Our world isn’t perfect. I choose to live in the moments that will elevate my spirit and inspire me to do better.
