Happy New Year from “The Patient’s Path”

Blue Globe_Happy New Year 2016_Middle_Reduced

Dear Readers,

Thank all of you for following our sister site, The Patient Path, since its inception in November 2013, when I began my journey with Uterine (Endometrial) Cancer. That site is now dedicated to cancers, particularly those affecting women.

Please continue to visit this site, which covers a variety of health and healthcare topics, and our sister cancer site throughout 2016 for more information, insights, and inspiration for becoming the most important member of your healthcare team as you embark on your own journey with gynecologic cancer and with other challenges to your health and well-being.

As we say farewell to 2015, I wish all of you around the world the best of the rest of the holiday season and much HEALTH, happiness, and prosperity in the new year.

A Christmas Carol_1843_50% My favorite story, A CHRISTMAS CAROL, was published 172 years ago, on December 19, 1843. Click the book to view the only manuscript version of the novella, which is housed at the (J. Pierpont) Morgan Library & Museum in New York. Do take a look—it’s a treasure. And click these links to read my reflections of two years ago while undergoing treatment for Uterine (Endometrial) Cancer:

Reminder from yesterday’s post: It’s not too late to sign up (it’s free): Consider meditation as one of the tools that can help you reclaim your sense of self and serenity. Today, November 11, 2013, Oprah & Deepak’s “Desire and Destiny” meditation program began. The theme for Day One is the eternal question, “Who am I?” The answer? “You are what your deepest desire is.” This is an ancient teaching from the Hindu Upanishads, and you have probably heard this beautiful lesson before: “As is your desire, so is your intention; as is your intention, so is your will; as is your will, so is your deed; as is your deed, so is your destiny.”
