Well you know you have arrived at a pinnacle point when you are asked to give a speech to cancer survivors that just finished treatment and their wellness program.
I finished this program myself almost a year ago and was so honored.
I spoke to this group of great people last week. It was an honor. I was so glad I could impart some wisdom and even some laughs, yes some things are funny. IE; if you have neuropathy in your feet........., do not wear those lovely high heels......"tip-over girl".
I really had their attention and I was happy to give back. I told the people in charge I would do this again any time.
I saw myself in these faces. Although the group was comprised of many cancer types, we all had one thing in common - as I pointed out to them - you are alive!
My biggest win was a member of the audience came to me after I spoke and said based on my story, she was going to have a colonoscopy. Wow - that was great.
In my "working life" I gave many a speech/meeting (Zzzzzzzz) but never have I felt so much appreciation, joy, strength and love then from this group.
Just thought I'd share
