The word I chose to embrace is BREATHE. At this point in my life I'm having a hard time wanting to do so. I've been having anxiety attacks daily. My grandfather was diagnosed with Stage 4 Liver Cancer.
He's my absolutely best friend. He raised me growing up and was my father figure when my Dad was in jail. I wouldn't be who I am today without my grandparents. I lived with them off and on most of my life. He's my person. The person I call when my tire goes flat or when I'd miss the bus in high school.
It's scary to watch him go through this and I don't want him to see me cry. So I focus on my BREATHING.
