Six years ago, I had the first of three surgeries to remove a benign brain tumor. At that moment I also started down a path to understand myself better - and claim the strength I had to effect major change in my life.
You have that power as well. For IgniteDC, I want to share the lessons learned from this event in my life as a reminder and inspiration for yours...
Among them: - Be real - Be scared - Be curious - Ask for help and receive it - Never say: "You'll be fine" or "I understand" - Trust your body - Stick to your key message - And finally, even if a situation is out of your control, you always have a choice in how you react to it and what you do about it.
