Appreciating the now. On Memorial day in 2017, I got the call that I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I'm still standing. Riding the waves post chemo, post radiation, post being bald, post surgery, post fear. Life is changed physically and emotionally. The battle continues just in a different phase. Yet I know I'm inching closer to my highest self. Believing I shall keep healing and thriving till I'm at least 88(bc 8 is my favorite number & my grandma is still alive and very well at 88☺️)
My self care habits since diagnosis have changed in regards to me making time DAILY to meditate now. I had dabbled in meditation off and on for years. But, since finishing treatment two years ago, I have started to incorporate meditation every day. I now journal about what I love, what I am grateful for, what I intend to manifest, how I want to feel each day. My creativity is finding beauty wherever I am. I long for beauty within and without. I am aesthetically drawn to beauty in nature, in humans, in art, in furniture, in the clouds. Going through breast cancer was like being a diamond in the coals of fire, physically transforming my body and mind. Losing my hair, gaining weight from Tamoxifen. It's been emotionally challenging coming to accept the "me" post the "diagnosis." Two months after chemo was my birthday and honestly I felt happy to be alive but sad b/c I felt like now what? I felt alone because the tremendous surge of love I had felt during chemo from loved ones, friends and family felt like it had disappeared because now the war was over. But, I still had to recover and heal from it all. It was 2017 when I was diagnosed. It is 2020 now, I still feel like I'm healing and blooming with each breath I take. I move through the days with several mantras including ~'be here now', 'love will save the day', 'God will never leave nor forsake me', and 'all is well'. I use visualization alot to see my organs healed and continuing to recover from everything. I focus on what I feel good about in my life and take mini steps to accomplish my goals. I do my best to LIVE now. I value my relationships tremendously. I deeply appreciate anyone who is kind to me, anyone who makes me smile, anyone who sends me a card or even texts me a sweet message. I love human connection. I love making others smile or feel a shimmer of joy. I feel I am here to spark joy, seriously. I am here to keep remembering who I am and why I am here. To align with the Divine love within and be love and spread it. Walk in my light.
