Happiness is…Surviving Most cancers 


The Saturday earlier than Labor Day, 2019 was going to be hectic however nice!  A gathering with a possible consumer, brunch with our kids, my annual household reunion and a visit to the Barter Theater for a efficiency promised to make it a hap, Hap, Pleased weekend. 

I wakened about 4 AM with excruciating ache.  When my spouse received up about 7, I informed her I wanted to go to the ER.  After a CT Scan, they got here again with the prognosis.  I had kidney stones in each kidneys.  I used to be additionally knowledgeable they’d discovered a strong mass on my left kidney.  I used to be informed to report back to a urologist as quickly as potential.    

My spouse, a retired Urology Nurse, on Tuesday phoned her former workplace.  One of many newer medical doctors within the observe had an appointment accessible that very afternoon.  I used to be remarkably relaxed. The physician got here in and I ready myself for him to schedule a biopsy.  As a substitute, he started scheduling surgical procedure to do a partial nephrectomy of the left kidney. 

So, you’re fairly certain it’s most cancers?” I requested.  “About 98% certain”, he answered.   

  OK, I’ll admit.  The very first thing I assumed after I heard most cancers was “God, how may you do that to me?  I’ve by no means smoked a cigarette in my life, and there are 80- year-old males operating round smoking 2 packs a day.” 

Then God jogged my memory for the final 15 years I’ve preached on my web site and in my blogs that we’re in whole management of our Happiness. Nobody may give it to us.   Nobody can take it away.  In my guide, Climbing Mt. Happiness:  The Haynes’ Hierarchy of Hope and Happiness I describe completely different ranges of Happiness starting from the bottom stage of Hope to the best stage of Pleasure.   About 70% of the time I keep on the highest stage of Pleasure.   

I prayed that God would assist me preserve, over the subsequent two months, this excessive stage of Happiness that I’d had in my coronary heart previous to the invention.  We had a number of very particular occasions deliberate earlier than listening to the prognosis.  I used to be decided to not solely take pleasure in them, however discover much more methods to expertise excessive happiness.  The hot button is to acknowledge what I name Happiness Effectors, actions that if performed with a constructive angle, will deliver happiness.  I used to be decided to expertise as many Happiness Effectors potential for the subsequent two months.   

These have been 73 of probably the most steady joyous days I can bear in mind.  I might estimate that I used to be on the highest stage of happiness 98% of the time.  At this level, I’m most cancers clear.  

I needed to share this expertise so I wrote a brief guide titled Surviving Most cancers: My 73-Day Journal from Discovery to Restoration.  In it, I share my pilgrimage via footage, movies and motivational messages.  My hope is that this guide will deliver hope and happiness to others which are struggling the challenges of most cancers.  In case you are considered one of these individuals, or know somebody that’s, I invite you to go to your favourite eBook web site, do a seek for Jerry L. Haynes and obtain the guide.

I additionally invite these of you who’re going through the challenges of most cancers to share your story under of how you might be staying blissful and preserving hope.
