Your Life Cannot Go Wrong, by Jeff Foster

 Hi Susan 
I have just recently began chemotherapy and do not believe that I was chosen to receive cancer. Crappy and great things happen as we continue to grow and mature along our paths. I do believe I have free will in how I cope with this disease and other challenges that have occurred during my life. I too have a gentler outlook on life and it has also brought me much pleasure.
But then again I am only human and negative thoughts can interfere with my relationships with myself and others... that is also part of the journey. So not sure I totally believe that every thing that happens to us is part of some greater plan, but we do have a choice whether to claim it or distract ourselves with anger or blame. In essence we think along the same train of thought don't you agree?
