I ran across a picture in my phone today that I took this time last year. I almost don't even recognize myself in this picture. But yes. That was me, fighting my fight. Doing my best to live to tell about it. Life is a beautiful thing. It is a crazy and very hard thing at times, but what a journey it is. I am realizing that as I am starting to feel more energy and hopeful for the future, I am also seeing that I have changed. You can't go through something like that and not change I guess. Here's to looking forward with hope while still living in the moment. Boy, what a difference a year makes!
"Today is the day I take my life back." - Rebekah Gregory. Seeing her come across the finish line of the Boston Marathon yesterday was so touching. Her statement resonated with me. It is the same reason I have signed up for the Marine Corps Marathon...to take my life back from breast cancer. To prove to myself that my best days are not behind me. This morning I was reminded that "taking my life back" is a daily commitment. Choices have to be made each and every day that effect the bottom line. So I ask you. How will you take your life back today?
