It's me ... only better! One year later

It's Me ... Only Better
I fought the battle with the “Big C” and won!

A year later, I am better than ever!

Cancer has been like a mirror held up in front of me.

It forced me to take a good look at myself.
I had to ask myself, "Where are you going?"
“What are you doing?”

It made me redefine my priorities.

I realized it really is the little things that make my life sweet, special.

Cleverly disguised as friends and family~
I witnessed the angels walking around me~
each one touching my life deeper than I ever dreamed possible.

Cancer forced me to embrace a change in myself -
a change that enabled me to grow and become the person I am today;
to have the freedom to be the person I want to be,
but never seemed to have the time to achieve.

Change always involves risk and is usually scary!

Jumping head first from the known into the unknown,
I had to embrace uncertainty and accept that I was not in control.

This battle has been the ultimate test of my character.

I have been forced to trust my heart and reach deep inside myself
for strength and power I knew I had, but did not rely upon.

I have come to understand that even though I had cancer, I was never a victim.

I am a survivor in heart and spirit and always will be!

Cancer truly is a defining diagnosis.

It was a moment that made me redefine the impossible in myself and my world.
And, since I did, nothing will ever be the same again...

I will never be the same again…

I am better!
