FIVE YEARS


It is a wonderful day. Today,  February 26, 2014 marks five years cancer FREE! 

Cancer survivors take the liberty of choosing which date they celebrate their "cancerversary." Many pick the day they were diagnosed; not me. I chose the date that I gave myself my very last shot. I want to celebrate a good day in my cancer journey; the day treatment was OVER. :) 

My oncologist counts each year on January 26th, which is the anniversary of the surgery that removed all of my cancer.

I want you all to celebrate with me today! 

My challenge to you is this:

  • If you are having a good day; share it! Buy a stranger a cup of coffee. Help someone load their groceries in the car. Leave a gift for your postal worker. Send a "just because" card. Make a donation. Call that person you've been meaning to catch up with. ANYTHING! Do something out of the ordinary and kind today. We have so much to be thankful for and you never know how your kindness can impact someone else. 
  • If you happen to be having a crappy day; change it! Treat yourself to a Pity Purchase; I give you permission. ;) Then, with a happy heart, go do something kind for someone else. 
  • Tell me about it! I want to hear about your act of kindness and/or your pity purchase. If you aren't comfortable sharing in the comments below shoot me an email {marrymintamanda@gmail.com} and let me know how you brightened someones day.

There is some very serious and very scary stuff in this world...

 I promise, that when it comes down to "it", life is all about the little things.

Appreciate your life today, please.

Now, go brighten someone's day!

Fun Fact: One year ago, on my 4th Cancerversary, Kyle and I found out I was pregnant :)

My sweet friend Chelsea brought me to tears this morning with this post. Please stop by her blog and say "hi." You won't regret it!

    1. Thanks Kelsey! I figure you have two choices; bitch and moan or just roll with it. I like rolling. Is there another way to celebrate other than run through the streets with large animals??
