I was diagnosed with breast cancer in June of 2022. In August of 2022 I had a bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction. 


At the time of my diagnosis I knew a few things. I knew I wanted:


  1. To be healthy, both physically and emotionally.
  2. To nurture and cultivate my relationship with my husband.

  3. To enjoying my children as they moved from their teen years into adulthood.

  4. To live long enough to meet my grandchildren was my ultimate dream. 


What I didn't know was if that was the plan for me. 


I was scared, tired and overwhelmed. My therapist reminded me that while I had no control of the situation I could control my reaction to the situation. So I started working on my reaction and it helped me get through some really hard times. The pages below are my story.


I hope my journey can help you on your journey.


Start HERE.

It's all yoga.


I've been trying on this mantra for the better part of 20 years. Seeing if it fits. Where it fits.


This journey through cancer has taught me that it really is, all yoga.


We think of yoga as the physical practice. The asana that we move our bodies through to stay flexible. I'm finding that yoga is a state of mind. It's reflection in the moment. It's staying present when life gets difficult. It's loving myself enough to do that. 

I am still actively trying to figure out what normal looks like for me.

I am: Being gentle with myself. Giving myself grace. Finding new normals.
