Survivor, breast cancer
Twist on Cancer: My twist on cancer is my newfound perspective around the depth of my own strength and courage. I spent years running from big, scary feelings, afraid I couldn't handle them. With my cancer diagnosis, life changed in an instant and I was faced with my most dreadful, terrifying, paralyzing feelings of all. I knew I needed to address and heal old stuffed down emotional wounds alongside the chemo and surgeries and physical healing. I needed to feel it all. And, I learned that I could. I am so much more in touch with my strength and courage after cancer. I deeply believe that in order for me to stay healthy I have to continue this ongoing healing process of connecting and healing within. And, as a result I've created more space inside for peace.
