So last month was birthday #45 and it also happened to be the same week I was diagnosed with breast cancer 2 years ago. TIME flies! It's been a whirlwind and honestly I wouldn't have done anything different. I continue to institute my holistic ways into each day and I feel proud to say that I have really made HUGE strides integrating my own plan that involves nutrition, detoxification, fitness, mind-body work, emotion work, and soul work. It has been rewarding and eye opening and a truly 100% biological approach to heal my body, mind and soul. I am currently getting a holistic cancer health coach certification and GUESS WHAT? The philosophies and plan of action is geared around ROOT-CAUSE of disease and it is EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE BEEN DOING THE PAST 2 years! Talk about Validation. I think I am healed just from that single notion. So yes I am feeling pretty good about my cancer progress AND I am gearing up to help others that have to walk in my shoes AND teach people the steps in living a LIFESTYLE-PREVENTION approach which will eliminate even having to deal with disease.
The month of September and October are pretty emotional for me. They happen to be the months of my birthday, my own breast cancer diagnosis, my sisters birthday (who was also diagnosed with breast cancer), and of course the marketing machine of breast cancer awareness month is October. PINK everything! I think BIG anniversaries and birthdays really get you thinking about everything. Kind of like a LIFE check-in. What am I doing? Why am I here on earth? What do I want to do to help others? Am I being all that I can be? How can I make every day joyous for myself and others? Now that I have half a life under my belt, I feel the need to be , do, experience, and learn just like I did the first half BUT in a different way. Why? Because now I have gained the wisdom of being in the moment, being present, being grateful, being true to myself, being connected, and letting love dictate each day. It feels pretty good. BUT I want to feel it and enjoy it even more in the 2nd half of my life. Why not? Who wants to be unhappy and distracted and feel like poop. Not me. I am sure you would say the same. Cancer has opened my eyes and really taught me how to be a true leader and how to enjoy life by just being me.
That being said, I still know I have a lot to learn. I think the minute you think you know all, that is setup for failure, whereas, the minute you feel you are open and can learn from each and every situation and/or person, that is success. I only hope I can continue on this journey in such an open -minded way and let all the greatness flow in and through and out of me. I am a work in progress.
