♥ My Farewell Post ♥

Happy New Year!!!

With this new year, comes the knowing that I am ready for more positive changes in my urgent sense of renewal and growth and I'm more than ready to accept other opportunities that are coming my way. I began this cancer journey in October 2009 and wrote my book, Living La Vida Lymphoma, which contained blog posts right from the start of my diagnosis.

Providing daily doses of inspiration was my goal....even though we were diagnosed with cancer, I hoped that an extra boost of inspiration, advocacy, education and empowerment would help to brighten your days.

I've come to another chapter in my "book" - I've decided to focus on total health and to erase that label of Lymphoma. The quote above, truly sums up my feelings at this point in my life and I hope that you'll understand my need for release. It's time to move on.

I've met so many angels along the way -- people who have become great friends and I believe that others will still be able to connect with me through the ethers of the internet in years to come. I am ALWAYS here for you if you need me, and wish you lots of light and love, joy, inner peace, vibrant health, and the knowing that you are stronger than you ever thought possible before the "C-word." 

I wish you the best in your journeys and thank you for all of the love and support that YOU have given me over these past few years!

Love & Light~

A Look Back...

A Look Back....


      As 2012 comes to a close, it is a time for reflection.  As a cancer patient, you may be riddled with thoughts of the past few months or years and wonder what the future holds.  I've spoken with many survivors who suffer from "anniversary" post traumatic stress syndrome. I am one of them.  When certain months roll around, my mind plays tricks on me and "reminds" me of what took place during those times.  It is stressful, but it helps to know I'm not alone - misery loves company!
As you will read in my book, there were other events that took place around the time of my diagnosis.  When I look back, I honestly don't know how I survived those troubling times.  They say, "Time heals all wounds" and, in a way, it has.  Do I still have the monkey brain thoughts and emotions play out?  Yes, sometimes I do.  But.....
We are all survivors on our own paths with the commonality of cancer.  It won't be an easy road, but we have to keep forging ahead.  Hopefully someday we'll be able to look back and say, "WOW!  I've come a loooong way and look at me now!"  That is my wish for us all in 2013!
Sending you lots of love,  peace, strength and light!

A Tribute To Dr. Wayne Dyer...

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

LOVE this!

Dr. Wayne Dyer is my favorite motivator / friend in my head, and this is one of my favorite quotes from him.  As you know, he was diagnosed with Leukemia a few years ago but he has maintained his philosophy and positive outlook on life.  He holds true to his beliefs and it has gotten him through. 
 That is what I have chosen to do, too!
