Yesterday I started my 11th cancer treatment and what a day it turned out to be. Everyone was there because of the holiday all the Monday patients as well as the Tuesday patients.

It will be very difficult for you to live a live of purpose and impact if you cannot answer this question. The truth is there are many things and people that may be impacting your life and not necessarily in a good way. In fact, you may already be impacting others. The question you need to answer, "Is it in a good, meaningful way or not"? I know for me I can tell when I have been around negative people for a few hours. Usually I leave in a negative mindset. This is not good, healthy or productive. You need to cut negative people from your life or at the very least minimize your exposure to them.

This was definitely me after my first cancer treatment. Then the closer you get to the end you start thinking, "These last three can't get here soon enough." This is also me. As I prepared for treatment number ten of twelve, I never expected I would be challenged to a fight by a monkey.
