Never could I have imagined that through this very personal, very significant health challenge I would receive so many cards, so many emails, so many well wishes and prayers…
It is one thing to know in this life that you are loved by your family and close friends, but to see the words written by so many of my clients, to feel the prayers that so many have said for me, to know that your precious thoughts are for my well being…it is overwhelming!
Never in a million years did I expect this type of response…
If you had told the younger me that one day I would see cancer as a gift…that it would change what was a “Good life” into something better…that it would free me to reach higher, grant me new freedoms and redefine what love and life is all about…I know I would have laughed. I would have said you don’t need cancer to do those things. But when life is good, you are healthy and have all you think you need…is there any real motivation to evolve?
As part of this evolution, I no longer look at life through the same pair of glasses…and I have found a sense of joy that is youthful again, a new sense of appreciation for simpler things, and as corny as it sounds, a sense of peace that transcends the logic and wisdom of this modern fast-paced world.
I want each and everyone of you to know that you have had a tremendous impact on me and this journey! Words cannot be found to properly express my gratitude and to give back to you what you have given me!
I will be forever blessed 😘
