It is time to get back to writing on this blog. I can't believe how long it has been. Nevertheless, it has been an interesting year. It began with a visit to Uganda which you can read about in my blog entitled - jobrown.typepad.com/Uganda
After, my return home we went to the Grand Canyon with friends, which you can also read about on this blog. The remainder of this year has been all about me. What do I mean? Well, a few cancer tumours showed up in my belly. So, I have been really careful about what I am eating and doing. I decided, this time, to add Johanna Budwig's protocol of mixing cottage cheese with flax oil. By itself, it is very yucky tasting. But when you add berries, almond milk, some cinnamon and walnuts to the mix, it is actually very good. It is also a very filling breakfast and gives you your protein right off the start.
Another thing, I did this time around was to have a good look at my emotions, prompted by a book called "The Emotion Code." I had several sessions with an emotion coach and to be honest, I did not think it was doing anything at all. But, after about the 7th session, I felt lighter. It is hard to explain; but it is seriously worth looking at if you have any type of chronic disease. I have felt wonderful. Indeed, I have checked in with the cancer clinic in November and everything looks great. Whatever, I am doing, keep doing it.
Then, just before Christmas, I had an interesting development. I got "Shingles"; the result of pushing myself to the limit, both day and evening, I believe. But it was a very mild case and did not upset the wonderful time we had with our family. My grandchildren were all together and we had so much fun with them.
So this is another new year. Folks, I have been talking about writing a book for years. It was at the publishers, but I put it on hold to deal with this last health issue. Now that everything is resolved, I can say, I am back at it again. And hopefully, very soon I will have a copy in my hand to look at.
For those of you who get to read it, I hope it encourages you to never give up. That is my message. The title of my book is "Twice: Lessons, Insights & Healing from Cancer!"
