Another Journey

In December 2006, a month after my 36th birthday, I was diagnosed with Stage 0/I breast cancer. I was one of the lucky ones - I had only a unilateral mastectomy and did not need chemo or radiation. Despite this, the unknown was always fearful, but the journey that I experienced was really one that changed my life and the fears worked out just as they were meant to be. There were so many things I was blessed with during that journey that it really redefined my life.

In December 2006, a month after my 36th birthday, I was diagnosed with Stage 0/I breast cancer. I was one of the lucky ones - I had only a unilateral mastectomy and did not need chemo or radiation. Despite this, the unknown was always fearful, but the journey that I experienced was really one that changed my life and the fears worked out just as they were meant to be. There were so many things I was blessed with during that journey that it really redefined my life.

This page is not about that journey, but the next journey in my life. One that I know will also redefine my life. On so many levels I have been afraid to begin this journey because I'm unsure how it will change me. It's taken a lot of soul searching, praying, reading and discussions with myself and others to come to the point where I am now ready to embark on this journey. I do not know what is up ahead, but I know that this, too, will have a profound impact on my life.

Through life, I have always been one to put others before myself. It wasn't until this year that I began standing up for myself and giving myself permission to do things for me. I created a vision board of the things I want to accomplish and visit. And ironically (or not) within a month of creating this vision board, I was presented with an amazing opportunity that would allow me to fulfill one of those - visit Alaska. And while it was only a small part of Alaska, it made me dream to bike and hike in Denali. Once I reach my goal weight, that is my reward.

This weightloss journey is just the start of the journey that is the rest of my life. And I know with the help of SP and support from SparkFriends, this part of the journey will be much easier to get through!
