Prior to 2018 I had spent my entire adult life balancing family and my career in the Finance Industry. That all changed in 2018 after being diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and eventually undergoing a Stem Cell Transplant. Not only did the way I live change, but surviving leukemia gave me a whole new perspective. Today my life is slower for sure but more fulfilling. I’m more self-aware and spiritual. Thanks to the Lord God Almighty I’m here to breathe another day, one day at a time!

My goal with this blog is to share my thoughts on how we can go about trying to live a positive, fulfilling stress-free life. I’ll also share some of my personal thoughts and experiences in an honest and sometimes humorous way. I truly believe that it’s not the things that happen to us in life that impact us the most, but more so it’s the way that we react to them. For me now, it’s all about quality of life. I hope to spend more time with family and friends, traveling, volunteering and blogging!
