I was accepted to Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey Clown College when I was 18.
I was diagnosed with cancer two weeks later so I couldn’t go.
Life goes the way you want, or it goes different.
It took me two years to start feeling like I had my strength back. I was in a radically different headspace.
I didn’t want to show up in that way anymore. I didn’t pursue Clown College.
That was one of many instances when the door of opportunity was opened only for life to have other plans.
The more these things happen in my life the more I noticed a pattern.
If I at minimum believed I was going to be okay and things were going to get better, they always did.
So I keep going.
Because I’m going to be okay.
Even when things go different.
