LIFE LESSONS I HAVE LEARNT SO FAR FROM HAVING CANCER

  • Have purpose. Purpose sees you through. Purpose gives you meaning. Purpose is your weapon.
  • Smoking is bad. Full stop. Just stop. STOP.
  • The body is INSANE. Listen to your body, it knows exactly what it wants at all times. Listen to these needs. Provide for it.
  • For every asshole out there there are at least 1,000 decent, honest, caring, amazing humans (most of them work for the NHS)
  • Live in the moment. Don’t think too much about the future or worry about the past. In fact don’t think too much, just be.
  • Be thankful for everything and everyone around you (provided they’re not an asshole as in previous point – give them the fingers)
  • Really there are only 3 things that matter in life: Health, Connection, Purpose. Material objects can go fuck themselves, along with self doubt, worry and caring about what you look like
  • Positive Mental Attitude is your friend. You may all think that I am just some super positive person but trust me, ask Barry or any of my friends, I was a moaning bitch before I got cancer who complained about everything and was never content with anything. Now I’m grateful for just having a normal shit.
  • Don’t end game, don’t plan too much, don’t set too many goals. You never know what’s around the corner….
