Thoughts for the day

I’ve said on this blog that I’ve been cured of hepatitis C, but I’m actually only 98% sure. I’ve had a 12-week SVR, but my nurse says nothing is absolutely certain until 24 weeks after treatment. That is coming soon.

In the meantime, I’m thinking of some sayings that helped me when  my confidence in a cure was way less than 50%. My dear friend Marla gave me a book on mindfulness. It brought to mind some Baby Boomer slogans that helped me through the uncertainty:

Seize the day

“Today is the first day of the rest of your life.” –Charles Dederich, founder of the Synanon drug rehabilitation program

“Seize the day.” –translation from the Latin “carpe diem” from Quintus Horatius Flaccus, possibly taken from a Babylonian saying

“Be here now.” –Bhagavan Das
