I finished active treatment less than a month ago, and wow, you just don't bounce right back up. Before all this started I have had sciatica for a couple of years, and it worsened during treatment. In trying to recover from both, I've been feeling frustrated. Now, I'm tired of the pain, fatigue, and frustration. Oh, and all these pills! I've been told I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something (yes, my darling husband, though he hasn't said it since diagnosis).

I recently read this article below and pulled out some sections. It reminded me of when I was younger and said "It's the little things...". I'm going to try it and will post my thin slices of joy as I experience them. Please join me so I can experience your thin slices of joy.

Google's former happiness guru developed a three-second brain exercise for finding joy

Successfully reshaping your mindset, he argues, has less to do with hours of therapy and more to do with mental exercises, including one that helps you recognize "thin slices of joy."

Although they last two or three seconds, the moments add up, and the more you notice joy, the more you will experience joy, Tan argues. "Thin slices of joy occur in life everywhereโ€ฆ and once you start noticing it, something happens, you find it's always there. Joy becomes something you can count on." That's because you're familiarizing the mind with joy, he explains.

Tan's "thin slice" exercise contains a trigger, a routine, and a rewardโ€”the three parts necessary to build a habit. The trigger, he says, is the pleasant moment, the routine is the noticing of it, and the reward is the feeling of joy itself.

A small study by psychologists from Loyola University published last month in the journal Aging, for instance, showed that among adults over age 55, those who reported a better ability to savor life were more likely to report higher life satisfaction, regardless of ill health. For those less able to relish small events, poor health made all of life seem drearier.

Sep 12, 2017 Edited to add update on sciatica: Using postural alignment exercises and nerve flossing, my sciatic pain is gone. I have most of my mobility back, and I am no longer taking any pain medications! I have significantly less mental fatigue after I dropped my Lyrica dosage. Big joy! I need to continue the nerve flossing or else I feel the tightness returning, but that takes less than a minute of my time. It took months of slow progress with some setbacks, but I finally succeeded!

From an interview with Jane Goodall printed in Time Magazine: He asked her if...she believed humans tended more toward good or evil. She responded that they have equal capacity for both. "The environment we create will determine what prevails," she told him. "In other words, what we nurture and encourage wins." Her hope isn't a denial of reality, Abrams says. It's more of a choice: "Whether we focus on the devastation or the regeneration. Whether we focus on the possibility for good, or the inevitability of evil."

Thanks, Serenity and Jazzygirl!

I had the BCI Test done (which was no small feat from Canada). It was in keeping with my MOs thoughts, but I was actually surprised by his recommendation so the good news is settling in slowly.

I had had two short breaks (one due to an endometrial cancer scare and the other for a hysterectomy for possible uterine cancer-both were just tamoxifen fuelled issues). They were wonderful! MO thinks I will feel great. I hope so. I haven't had a horrible time, but it's like death by a thousand cuts!

Hi joyful ones. I haven't been here in a while. I signed up to an Ingrid Fetell Lee blog after reading about her here and I really liked this article she posted the other day. It made me think of you! If you ever feel guilty about feeling joy or doing things that give you joy this is for you.

ScotBird - Insightful article. Thanks for posting. Getting older has made the difference for me. Now I do take time for me. And have come a long way towards NO GUILT. Too bad it took me so long to figure it out.

Yesterday I read a Robert Galbraith novel (J.K.Rowling's nom de plume) - Brit private eye. I mean - that's ALL I did. I woke up at 4am and couldn't get back to sleep - so I read until 9am. Then I rolled over & napped until 11am. Other than a short break to heat up leftover for dinner and a quick check of this sight and my emails while it was heating, I read. Finished the book at midnight. Lovely day.
