I began writing this on the 3rd of June 2019, the second week of my first round of chemo treatment. It was meant to be my first contribution to the blog but required postponing as treatment began to take its toll. The page break jumps to the current month of April 2020.
Maktub (It is written)
I have found that when you step back from life and look upon it with a certain level of detachment you can see a greater intelligence at work, I believe anyway; take this blog for example which my friend Keila invited me to be a co-author of a few months ago, the overarching theme, healing. I had a vague idea of what I would write for my first post but decided to postpone because of my inability to intuitively land on a topic. Fast forward to now, I find myself faced with the most significant healing experience of my life, potentially something worth writing about it seems.
Having been recently diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia (Cancer of the blood), I was, of course, shocked momentarily but I knew instantaneously that it was nothing to worry about, everything in my life had prepared me for that moment, this is the case for everyone with anything in life that challenges us to step outside of our comfort zone and grow.
God doesn’t give us more than we can handle
