Lately I have been beginning to look at the brighter sides of where I am today. Many of my posts speak of the trials that I have encountered since my diagnosis and stem-cell transplant. And while I still want to keep it real, I also want to express my joy with Life.
Recently, and quite fortunately, I was able to receive a free real-hair wig. It has uplifted my self-confidence and has made me feel more normal. I know the saying 'bald is beautiful', but it's not as easy for some to embrace. Especially someone like me who has always struggled with weight and a poor body self-image.
Somedays, I feel like shouting how happy I'm here to be alive. I want to laugh daily. I want to be my geeky, book nerdy, techie self. And if anyone has issue with my quirky ways, then so be it. I love who I am. I love all those odd ball things about me because that is 'me'.
I'm embracing the newer things about me. When faced with your own mortality, your outlook and perspective definitely changes. And those changes affect how you approach Life.
Well, I'm approaching Life by the #feelalive motto!!! I hope many of you will do the same. Don't be ashamed of who you are...Live, Laugh, Love, Feel Alive and Embrace Life!!!
