Waves of Pink II: Common Ground, Uncommon Courage
The biggest change I saw in myself from this was my attitude towards life and the way I lived. I let go of fear. Fear of not going after what I wanted to achieve, fear of what others thought of me, and fear of the future. Once I let go of fear and replaced it with faith, my life changed so much. If only I could have lived this way before. It took getting breast cancer for me to live my life the way I truly wanted to.
