I know so many people who get caught up in the bad things that happen to them. Things that for the most part are out of their control. Whether it be an illness, a change in relationship status, or even a troubled childhood it is important to not let those things define you, or for that matter define your future as anything other than full of possibilities. I look at my life and the things that I have encountered, there are things I can control and things I cannot. The things that I can control are what I
should focus on. What can I do to make the most of the life I have and how can I achieve even greater things? The things I cannot control, such as my cancer, cannot be allowed to bring me down. I need to look at them differently and see what I can learn from that experience. I lost my leg to cancer, that was not anything within my control however, how I have chosen to live my life as a one-legged cancer survivor is. I have learned that I am a strong individual who can achieve anything I set my mind too. I have learned the importance of setting goals and trying to achieve them. Sometimes it is necessary for me to reevaluate my goals and tweak them but that is okay. I do not sit and worry that every ache and pain is cancer nor have I allowed my cancer to jade my personality. "I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become." Everyone deals with their life experiences differently, my hope for you is that you will choose to grow from your experience and that you will make the most of the life you have been given.

A bit about me:
I am who I am thanks to God, my parents, my family, and my friends. My life is driven by faith. Oh, and I am a cancer survivor.
