For the past 3 months, Linda Abi Assi, a Columbia University Journalism student now graduate, had been following me. She heard out about my (new) life after cancer and decided she wanted to share with others how a negative event can turn into a positive and how that positive could be utilized to inspire others. Initially, it was odd having someone follow me at work, at home, at church, at the market, at my wellness group, in the car, etc… but eventually it became yet another part of my hectic life. I just finished listening to Iyanla Vanzant’s Peace from Broken Pieces, this audio book really resonated with me because like her I realize that life truly does get better after inexplicable challenges and personal tragedies.
YOU must be the change you want to see in the world. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
