When I look back over my life I can see many things that at the time felt like the worst adversity, but I now know it was an opportunity for me to learn a powerful life lesson.
For me, one of those events was surviving breast cancer. When I was diagnosed, a wave of immobilizing fear smacked me in the face and then tried to stay with me throughout my treatment. But I wasn't having it! Even though I was afraid of what might happen, each day, I pushed fear back by focusing on the things that mattered most to me: loving myself and others, reading, laughing, cooking good food and planning for my future. No, every day wasn't easy, but, every day that I stayed committed to my journey it got easier and I grew bolder.
When I share this story it tends to inspire others. It also, continues to inspire me.
