It’s no secret that I’ve been on a journey (a long one, at that) to learning how to love myself and my body again. For a long time, I felt very pretty dang betrayed by my body and had a very hard time coming to grips with the fact that it would never be the same again. Cancer has a funny way of staying with you like that, even 11 years later. October is a rough month for me – it’s the month I celebrate my remission anniversary, but it is also the month I lost one of my closest friends from my hospital floor, Maddie. To say that the survivor’s guilt is heavy is an understatement. So, as we approached October, I knew I needed to do something drastic to prevent myself from slipping into some negative ruts in life. So, when PRIMP and Pamprin approached me and asked if I would team up with them this month for a 21 Day positivity challenge, I felt like it was a sign from the universe telling me that I could make it through this October in a much better way.
