My Dad was diagnosed with leukemia in late 2008. Thanks to the research of the Leukemia society, he was able to get advanced treatment and cured. He is now CANCER-FREE!
This is so true. I think many people forget about self-care when they do service work. Mostly driven by the desire to succeed in the external world, they push themselves beyond their limits, get hard on themselves too easily and feel like a failure if they haven't reached certain goals in their business. The best thing you can do when you get there is ask yourself, "Where are you going?" There is nothing but here and now. No matter what you attain on the material level will pale in comparison to the inner peace you can experience in the moment. There is a delicious part in every step of the way to success and the beginning of the journey is the most exciting, uncertain and daring. This is the time when you are closest to the rawness and richness of life. Just doing what you love has success in it already -- the best-seller, the fame and fortune are secondary.
