For reasons I can’t even begin to describe, this caught my eye this afternoon. Was it because of the sun highlighting the colours, the vibrancy of the colours, or something else, I don’t know.

I did feel compelled to take a picture because it brought up a lot of emotions. It’s a symbol of new life, even off a broken branch.

I literally feel like that biggest green shoot right now, I feel like I’m re-emerging. That light at the end of the tunnel, it seems fairly close right now. It could be a temporary feeling, but I’ll take it!

Acceptance plays a huge role in this re-emerging, something I was struggling with big time. I’m learning and feel like I’m slowly getting better at it.


No matter where you are in your journey as a cancer patient, a cancer survivor or a caregiver, that light will come when the end of the tunnel is almost reached, not when you’re looking for it.

If anybody is interested in following my journey on IG, you’ll find me as kristel_onamission
