2015 – Are you going BIG?

How is 2015 shaping up for you? I’ve had some pretty big and monumental things occur in my life starting in late 2014 and carrying over into this year.

First, I hit my 1-year remission mark from stage 4 cancer in November 2014! This was such an amazing feeling, getting to look back and reflect on how much pain and suffering I endured, only to look at my life now! I’m alive and well. Cancer-free. My oncologist said if I can make it to my two year remission mark that I have a better chance of my cancer not relapsing, so that is what I’m shooting for (and between you and me, I’m confident it won’t. Universe, are you listening?). I had nothing to rely on during my illness besides God and my own personal strength that He gave to me. That was it. God is powerful and so is the human spirit. Positive thinking combined with strength in God, I know, is what got me through it.

Speaking of miracles….I got another amazing miracle—I found out I was pregnant immediately after I celebrated one year in remission! I wasn’t supposed to be able to have kids after my cancer treatment, so this came as a complete shock and possibly the world’s biggest blessing. Even though I’ll be a single Mom and co-parenting with her Dad, I know we will love her so much and she’ll know what a miracle she is. Yes, it’s a girl!

I am forever changed for the better because of cancer. My whole life was turned upside down, inside out and I never realized how one single experience could transform a human being so completely. I know that my being open to the transformation was pivotal in my healing but I feel profoundly changed by my experience. It taught me things that one could never possibly learn through ordinary living. It opened up new dimensions that I didn’t even know existed in my life, my heart and my mind. What an incredible journey I am on!

I’m a firm believer that some people endure harder life circumstances than others for a reason. Sometimes it’s how we learn important lessons and sometimes it’s meant for a higher purpose that we’ll never understand. I believe inspiration comes in many forms, even through hardships.

How has 2015 been for you so far? Please share your experiences so that we can all celebrate life in whatever capacity it’s serving in our own lives. Let’s be a community of hope and happiness for each other!
