So, I had to have a tough conversation with my ten-year-old daughter today about letting something that was very devastating to our family (aka "mom's 2019 breast
cancer diagnosis") stop her from reaching her full potential. You see, she's written this
AMAZING book, "Okay Mommy, I Will Help You" which is a guide to help kids understand and deal with the cancer diagnosis of a parent, family member or friend, but she has days where she shuts down and doesn't want to talk about it.
I totally get where she's coming from, it's like ripping off the band-aid when we transport ourselves mentally back to that time in our lives. But in order to heal and use
our experiences to help others we're going to have to walk around the road closed sign because you have no idea what's waiting for you on the other side. Our life's
experiences whether good or bad serve as our revealers. They show us our
strength, they teach us to be patient and they give us O-P-P-O-R-T-U-N-I-T-Y!!!
Now, that opportunity comes in various forms, it could be hope by sharing your story with others and letting them know they aren't alone and can make it; it could be
relationships you develop or that love you've been searching for because you're not allowing fear to stop you from putting yourself out there, It could be that company you dreamed of starting all your life.
Whatever your wound is, don't let it stop you from reaching your goals and full potential in life.
Until next time, let hope lead you so happiness can follow!
