“In sharing my own life story, I mistakenly believed that no one would want to hear my story of what I had lived through and had overcome. Yet, as I shared my story of living a life of grief to grace, I realized many people wanted and needed to hear about my life challenges and the many blessings despite impossible odds.
My intention, when writing my life story, was solely for my children, who at the time were ages 3, 12 and 16. I had been diagnosed with stage IV cancer and was told my life would not last long. Leaving behind my story was a way for my kids to understand who I was and how I became the person I am through my life experiences.
Being encouraged to share my story publicly was life changing!
I was in awe at the realization that my story was of value to others.
When others communicated to me that my story and my survival was one of encouragement, hope and inspiration to them, I felt a sudden, deep in my heart and soul, healing.
I knew then that all that I endured and overcome was for a reason. Sharing the wisdom I had gained through my challenges to help others in their journey of life struggles was humbling.
To have a positive impact on others lives made everything I had been through worth it!”
