Love the Skin you’re in!

Hi darlings, 

I wanted to share these photos I took recently, not with the intentions of being sexy, but to encourage all of us to love yourself no matter what physical state you are in life. We sometimes forget that the body can be fragile when we fill our minds with negative thoughts about how we may feel about ourselves. That’s what I was beginning to do when I first found out I had cancer. I started to doubt myself all the time, and started to feel invisible and not myself.

When I first was diagnosed, people were surprised, considering I am very healthy and work out a lot. Well, I learned very quickly that Cancer does not discriminate, and it can happen to anyone. Unfortunately cancer can change the way you live, the way you think, and the way you feel, but that isn’t going to stop me from living my life, my best life.

I was having a lot of self doubt two weeks ago, but recently I’ve been taking a different approach to the way I see cancer and chemo. I have to constantly remind myself that although life has shifted a bit, cancer does not define me and I will continue to love myself through all the changes. I am still the same person and I will continue to fight this battle. I am not invisible. I’ve been trying to wake up with a more positive attitude, take better care of my body, take life one day at a time, and just being in the moment. The side effects can be intense, and that is what majority of the time effects me emotionally and physically, but I’m learning to adjust and find ways to make myself more comfortable,(even if it means going to the hospital everyday to get IV fluids to stay hydrated) take my medication and just taking it one step at a time. I’m learning to be patient with my body and allowing myself to understand the process.

The point of this blog is to get a little glimpse of what my thought process is like, and understanding that, although I have cancer, I’m still living. Things may fall a part, but things can also be put back together. My story doesn’t end here.

Love the skin you’re in. I am learning that more each day. I’m grateful and humble to know that I am not alone in this. If you or anyone you know is dealing with cancer, know that you too, are not alone. We are all in this together.

Xo,

    Loved reading this post. Many times when we encounter certain situations we ask God “why me”. With time I’ve learned to not question our Almighty father or his plans.
    Your adversity or circumstance has not stopped you from being who you are. If at certain points in this joirney you have felt like giving up or as you stated encountered negative thoughts, your faith in God is so grand that your thinking process has shifted. You are a strong, beautiful woman and although I don’t know you on a personal level, I feel I know enough of you through your blogs. Your story and your way of thinking will inspire and give strength to someone in desperate need. Your strength will inspire someone out there to never give up, to not never allow circumstances to defeat you nor define you and most importantly to never stop loving yourself no matter what life throws at you. Your journey Kyrzada is for me and many others inspiration to push forward and never lose faith.
    Thank you and be blessed.

    Amazing read. I struggle with this daily and can just imagine adding a health issue on top. Sel reflecting can reset your mind and I practice this constantly. Thank you for sharing a piece of your heart. You should be writing columns for a magazine.

    You are such an inspiration! I’m 34 years old and I am a breast cancer survivor! I was diagnosed in March (I was 33) and went through 15 rounds of chemo, surgery, and 30 radiation treatments. Cancer gave me a new perspective, outlook, and vision. I completely understand what you’re going through physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Remember that God prepared you for this very moment. He will give you the strength you need to get through this. Continue to empower, motivate, and inspire! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me for support! You will be victorious! Happy New Year!

    Your soul is Beautiful! Keep that positive way of thinking and feeling. Know that as women we are all on the same journey as you in one way or another. We must always look at eachother as mothers,daughters, soul sisters,friends and uplift when one needs it. I wish you wellness and joy.
