In 2017 I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and suddenly every fear I could imagine came crashing down on my shoulders at once: financial, professional, relationships, vanity, fertility and of course, mortality.
After undergoing a double mastectomy surgery at the ripe age of 39, hooked up to a morphine drip in intensive care, it occurred to me that I might not survive that first night after surgery.
And then something incredible happened. I realized that if I were to die, I was ok with it, because I had completely dedicated my life to following my heart. I had done everything I wanted to do. I felt a sense of peace I had never experienced. Would I have been able to say the same had I continued on in a lifestyle that wasn’t working for me?
I promised myself that if I did survive, I would dedicate the rest of my life to helping others create that same magic in their lives. My greatest difficulty had suddenly become my greatest asset, and what makes me uniquely qualified to guide others. And thus, Warrior Girl Coaching was born.
I used to hate my scars but now they fill me with pride, battle wounds of a Warrior Girl, who in her darkness found her light, and in her weakness, her strength. We are all Warriors, and I’m here to remind you if you ever forget.
