Self Love


I had reached some really low points emotionally while battling ‘breast cancer’ this past year. The very thought that cancer had invaded my body was enough to turn my world upside down. I felt hopeless…lost….confused and deeply hurt. I initially cried a lot, stopped eating, and closed myself off from the rest of the world. How could anyone ever look at me the same? Why did I have to get cancer? When you’re a woman you worry about everything, especially physical (beauty) or your appearance in general ….our society is built on it. After losing all my hair during chemo, then both my breast after bilateral surgery, I had to learn to LOVE and ACCEPT the new me.

  1. Though I haven't had cancer, your story is very inspirational. It took me 48 years to see my beauty. It's not just physical ailments that put negative blinders on our eyes. Often times it is emotional turmoil. I'm glad you're here to share your story.

  2. Im glad that you have learned self love. My mother lost her battle with Breast Cancer 2yrs ago. You keep your head held high and know that THIS TOO SHALL PASS!! You are such a beautiful person before this cancer and you will be after!!! Just keep your hands in GODS hand!!

  3. I've been following your journey on here and Instagram since you broke the news. Your courage, your spirit, your smile. You've been inspiring to ME. I'm happy that despite this humongous setback, there's been a bit of a silver lining for you – learning and accepting the new you. I'm still trying to see my beauty, inside and out. It's a daily challenge but I'm slowly getting there.

    Happy New Year!

  4. Vi Vi…Thank you…your words bring tears to my eyes. I thought I had discovered my beauty but this experience has changed my everything. Look no further for your beauty, it's already there whether you see it or not. Love & blessings to you!

  5. And if the people you encounter can't see your heart then they will miss a beautiful spirit. Although I have never been diagnosed, I've walked this walk many times closely even wit my mom. You'll have those days but I know in the end you are so grateful for life and a chance to be the light that you are. Praying for total healing, Xo.
