Go Confidently

This summer I am working on the fourth revision of a diary I keep while going through cancer. Each day I will share one rewritten entry. My goal is to have the fourth rough draft completed by August 15th. All rights reserved, but feedback welcome.:)


Day Seventy Three
Go Confidently

“Go confidently in
the direction of your dreams.”
A quote by Henry
David Thoreau.

There are another areas,
in which I go confidently
out in public—

It’s summer and so
making the decision
of not wearing a scarf
or a wig

makes sense for now,
but once school starts,
I’m sure I won’t go
as confidently.

Especially when

autumn’s chill blows in,
but for now,
bald it is.

It’s not some great
political statement.
It stared practically:
it’s summer and it’s hot!

I’m teaching others
how to treat me
by how I treat myself –
with confidence.
