You have graduated. Congratulations! Let’s celebrate. Let’s reflect on how far you have come. And then let’s turn our faces to the sun, let the shadows fall behind us, and prepare to commence our journey.
Today I have breast cancer. Today I have joined the club. I have said the words. In fact, the cancer has been there growing for some time. I have had it with me on this journey. It is not new. Today is in fact the day that I stand up and say “No more.” It is time to cut out all the things that are holding me back from being fully alive. Being afraid to see it was the dangerous part.
This winter I was challenged to step out of fear and into JOY in some wild new ways. I needed to get off the sidelines, stop hiding behind my limiting beliefs, and just take the leap. Literally. I thought I had faced so many of my biggest fears, and then they grew bigger, just like my babies!
When I finally found the courage and started speaking my truth, owning my story, and feeling like I deserved to be here, the physical pains started to lessen. As I learned to feel like I had some worth and I let some joy in, the blocks started to shift and move and I let some energy flow to that part of my body that was so wounded. I sent love to the little girl that was hurt and told her that it wasn’t her fault.
I am breaking up and breaking out and moving on. Celebrate with me.
