So I don’t know about you guys but I’ve been seeing a lot of pink lately. Being the blonde that I am, I didn’t notice it at first but eventually realized it after seeing all of the pink ribbons and all of the people talking about it!
I will start this blog entry by telling you that I don’t know much about breast cancer or know many women that suffer from it.
Even though I don’t know much, it makes me want to learn more about it but that will be for another day. Today, I just want to be a voice of encouragement for all of the women in the world that fight this fight.
Thank you to all of the ladies that suffer through this catastrophe of a disease with a smile on your face. Because of this awareness that is being raised, women like me are introduced to all of the effects and to all of the survivors that have come out of this.
You women who have suffered from breast cancer make me proud to be a woman. You show all of us, through fighting your fight, that all women can fight our battles too, no matter how big or small.
Thank you for being beautiful. When crazy obstacles are thrown into our lives, we have two options:
- We can either fall down and lie in the fetal position or,
- We can embrace it, beautifully.
No matter what I say, I can’t make you beautiful and I can’t make your insecurities go away (you would know, if you knew of all the insecurities that I struggle with) but, I can tell you that you’re beautiful anyways. I don’t have to see you or know you, but I know beauty comes from within and the fact that you know someone with breast cancer or you, yourself are fighting it, you are a woman warrior! A warrior of God, and you are beautiful because of that fact alone, not even mentioning all of the other wonderful things you encompass.
For all of you people who are going along in this journey with someone with breast cancer or supporting a family member or friend with it, I salute you as well. Thank you for being the best friend, husband, sister or mother and keep it up! I’m sure it gets hard at times, but support and love that person with all that you have! You won’t regret it in the end, I promise!
So please, during this month, Breast Cancer Awareness month:Take all of the compliments you can, fight your fight strongly, take a break, love.love.love, remember you are not alone & remember you are beautiful.
You who have suffered from breast cancer make me proud 2 b a woman. #breastcancerwarrior
Again, thank you for setting a high bar for the rest of us women to be strong, to be beautiful, to fight and to be the best woman you can be.
Happy Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
