Where Do The Emotions Go?

I was at my desk wrapping up a project when one of my old girlfriends from high school announced in big bold letters via Facebook that she was cancer free.  I immediately thought of another dear friend who received the same good news this year and noted that I had the same overwhelming reaction of relief, peace, and most of all thankfulness for both them. I also wondered if I had done enough…rockscircle

I smiled as I remembered my high school friend being crowned as one of our beauties and laughed out loud at the memory of pulling each others hair in elementary school…wait, hold on…that was just yesterday!  This flood of memories started me thinking about where emotions go, where do they finally end up..what new feelings must one be prepared to deal with after receiving a bill of good health? I looked at a few websites like www.livestrong.com, where they address paying attention to new feelings and the importance of maintaining good relationships with friends and family.  I would imagine that very few of us pay enough attention to our feelings, and I am very guilty in not asking those very special cancer survivors how they are doing! Course correction time!
