    As I have become more and more overwhelmed by what I want to do and more serious about it, I have been noodling all over cyberspace.  What I have discovered is that there are tons of wonderful resources out there!  The trick is finding them.

    What I do is go to a blog I like, then go to a blog she likes, and another, and so on.  It’s a wide world in cyberland, and a wonderful community of serious bloggers who are giving hope, educating, and dealing with cancer with courage and grace.  Today I found Being Cancer Network.  The blog was conceived by a two time survivor who beat the odds, and is now facilitating a blogger network to help people cope with any diagnosis.

    What I am finding is that there is a vast, amazing flow of information and inspiration going on, and all the ideas I have floating in my head about what will be helpful are already being implemented!  That is just SO amazing and fantastic.

    My vision of this site is expanding and coming into focus.  All of this great stuff I’m finding will be traceable from here!

    I found Survivor Profiles.  I’m sure I will add some of my own, but there are some already out there that I can link to.

    The blog network is inspired.  I didn’t think of that one at all!  What a great resource!

    I would like to profile supporters as well, or find supporter profiles so that people who are walking with a loved one on the cancer journey can find wisdom and support as well.

    I think that the most important thing I have learned, that I feel is hugely important to my thriving into the future, is that passion is life force.  I have had many occupations, both paid and unpaid, that mattered to me.  When I was a single mom with a huge responsibility to (in my mind) sacrifice creative passion to practicality, I failed to thrive.  With lack of passion, and with constant, relentless stress, my body was too depleted to fight the beast when it invaded.

    Today, the day after Thanksgiving, I enjoyed time with my daughter, her friend and her friend’s dad.  We saw “Tangled” which was just delicious!  I enjoyed it immensely, and when I got home I happily greeted my computer, ready to roam around looking for good stuff, and ready to talk about it.

    All work and no play is no fun and not good for anyone.

    The perfect work is the one I’m glad to leave play to come home and do!

    If any of you, my readers, discover another gem, please tell me!  I can’t wait to post about it right here.
