Transformation is a process, and as life happens there are tons of ups and downs. It’s a journey of discovery – there are moments on mountaintops and moments in deep valleys of despair. Rick Warren
Happy 2016 everyone, after nearly 4 months of 2016!
This week marks 5 years since my “OFFICIAL” diagnosis. When I started on this journey of writing and sharing only days after I received my diagnosis, I did so because I wanted to inspire. To show others like myself that they were not alone in a world filled with so much uncertainty. Since then so much has happened. You have all been on this journey with me, a journey of love, loss, change, and pain. Good, bad, and at times very ugly you have all been there. I knew sharing my inner most thoughts would come with a certain level of vulnerability that at times I was unsure I was able to give. It took a special person (Platypus) to push me to take my writing to a new platform. There was something I did not account for, what I would get in return. I would learn quickly on this journey that I would in turn be the one being inspired. I have been inspired more than I could ever expect to inspire others. In 5 years I have gained friends around the world, a community unified in positive support and love, and above all lifelong sisters and brothers that never let the other walk this road alone. I feel so beyond blessed for all that I have gained from this beautiful experience. I am here to thank you all that have taken the time to read, comment, and email me through this journey.
To another 5 years of beautiful experiences!
