Changing lives one breath at a time
You have heard plenty of advice, but are you being heard?
Tell me your story, and let's embark together on your journey forward.
My mission is simple; I help those affected by Breast Cancer change their lives. In addition to helping transition mere survivors into thrivers, I'm committed to empowering those who have been impacted by the illness of a loved one.
Here’s the little secret no one tells you, the power to change your life is already in you, you hold all the answers. At Breathe Life Coaching, I help guide you through the process to find the answers within to make powerful changes in your life.
You didn't choose this journey, but you can choose your path forward. I'm here to help you get started, one breath at a time!
"I will breathe."
An Open Letter to
My Post Breast Cancer Body
Hello old friend. I use the word “friend” very loosely, as no one would treat a friend they way I have treated you. Makes me think of the Willie Nelson song, Always on My Mind. “Maybe I didn’t love you quite as often as I could have, and maybe I didn’t treat you quite as good as I should have. You were always on my mind”. Had you really been my friend, I would not have stood in front of the bathroom mirror hating you. Had you really been my friend, I would be proud of the scars, for they are proof of all you have been through. Had you really been my friend, I would tell you how much I love you and how proud I am of all the trauma you have been through. Had you really been my friend, I would hug you and tell you that breast cancer is NOT your fault!
You are strong, you are a fighter and you will move past this, I don’t know how or when, but you will come out on the other side, stronger than before. I know you mourn the lost of your pre-cancer body and that’s ok, you have been through a trauma and treatments most people will never know. I know you miss your breasts; I know you miss wearing fun, pretty bras, but they do not make you who you are. Your beauty and strength come from the inside and your greater purpose.
You now have new “Foobs." Your new “Foobs” aren’t trying to kill you! When you see your new reflection in the bathroom mirror, be proud of yourself! Be proud that you survived 13 surgeries to get to this point. Be proud that you survived the horror that is chemo. Be proud that you survived the Herceptin treatments. I am sorry for all you have been through; I really am! You must stop the self-hating, the self-loathing and start the self-love. Be proud that you survived, please let the side effects of all that go, your hair will come back, the hot flashes and night sweats will stop, you will get used to your new body and find new ways to love yourself. Embrace it all and be proud of the new you! You are not alone, there is an entire army of survivors walking the same path as you.
Hello new friend! I love you and I am so proud of you! Our new relationship starts now and moving forward, our days will be filled with love and support. You got this girl! I love you and I am so proud of you!!
