In my life I’ve been blessed with opportunities to explore the world and experience the profound beauty and pain of humanity. I remain awe-inspired by the strength and courage of people to make the world a better place, and I also feel grateful to have wonderful friends and family alongside me.
Life has also had its discontents, and the last year has been particularly challenging – my partnership ended, I completed my doctorate, and I was diagnosed with follicular lymphoma. It’s been an intense time to say the least.
Traversing this complexity has been, and is, interesting. There are moments when I feel sadness, anger and confusion, and others when I feel profound hope and gratitude. I am also discovering my courage and strength; I am finding me!
Along this journey, one word has continued to resonate with me – grace. This blog documents my quest to understand and be grace amidst cancer and uncertainty. Through it, I hope to share my journey – recognizing we all fall from grace sometimes – and explore the essence of what living full of grace truly means.
I thank you for joining me on my journey.
