My goal is to balance my life with better healthy eating habits and exercise, as well as living my life with simplicity and grace.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer on May 26th, 2010. I had a lumpectomy on my birthday, June 8th ( I gave myself the gift of life) and received my birthday wish of no nodes!! I finished radiation treatments (33) on August 25th, had a full hysterectomy on September 17th. I will start hormone therapy soon.
I cherish each day and all its beauty....I took back my life the day I was diagnosed and I am not looking back but forward...appreciating all that is to come my way!!

    “One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.”

    Our lives are not determined by what happens to us,
    but by how we react to what happens,
    not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life.
    A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts,
    events and outcomes.
    It is a catalyst, a Spark that creates extraordinary results.

    AVOIDING MISTAKES
    One sure way to avoid mistakes is to avoid taking action. But in the
    long run, avoiding action would be the biggest mistake of all, for
    nothing would ever get done.
    If you're going to move forward, you're going to make some wrong
    turns along the way. Don't let that stop you from proceeding.
    There will be many times when you'll look back and wish you had done
    things differently. Don't let that stop you from moving forward.
    Mistakes are bad enough on their own. Don't be so afraid of them that
    you avoid life itself.
    Every mistake you've ever made is now in the past. The way to move
    ahead is to leave them there.
    Learn from where you went wrong, then step confidently and positively
    forward. For now is your time to live and to act.
