On this Martin Luther King, Jr day, I started reading some of his brilliant quotes and this one spoke out to me. I feel like this is how I handled this whole little adventure. When I decided to go for the bilateral mastectomy, there was a high chance I wasn't going to need chemo, or really what my life would look after that moment I was diagnosed. But you just have to follow your faith (whatever it maybe) and the signals that direct you to the right path in life. Then you feel more protected during each step. And when I say faith, I don't care if you entrust your faith on a stale french fry, just as long as you have some kind of faith on something out there that you can lean on. It helps.
Sometimes I'll have my low moments, especially right now when I look at my bald self in the mirror and really look like a cancer girl. I pinch myself to wake up, because I can't believe this is happening to me.
Then I say (yes I do seem to talk to myself a lot)...
Your in good hands. You got this.
The good hands that protect me are my doctors, my nurses, cancer researchers, my family, my friends, my business partner and employees, my community, my god, my universe...my faith....
And that it will be...
alright, alright, alright!
