What it feels like when you told that you have a cancer?!

When I was told I had a cancer, I didn’t yell, I actually laughed.

I don’t believe in fate or miracles. I believe that only my will can shape the future.

I always laughed when I panic!! Hahaha!!

The days that follow are full of shock, denial, fear, anger, and even sorrow.

I realised also that the ones who think they know me, they really don’t know anything at all.

My therapist lately told me that I’m a strong woman for being able to fight for myself over and over again.

But I have to say that I took long time working on my emotional state before I was able to actually share anything about my cancer to people.

Sharing my cancer story still not an easy task, I don’t know where to start, and when I do, people react to this kind of news in different ways.

Some reacted negatively for not knowing from the start. Others were reminded with their own fears about cancer and started to ask me questions as if I was an expert.

I believe that we are free to share what we want and I still refuse to share certain information which I consider very private.

In the end Knowing about other people’s personal experience of cancer can be a source of support and inspiration when you or someone you love is going through cancer treatment.


There is beauty in a woman whose confidence comes from experience. She is not afraid to take risks knowing if she should fall she can pick herself back up and move forward. I have started to do this and I believe that you can do too!!

A Free Spirit


Recently a friend of mine labeled me as a “free spirit” person, and this isn’t the first time to hear that.

Yes I’m kinda of this label. I’m not selfish but I have been independent for long and I know how to do things because I want to do them.

Still I can’t function when I feel restricted. I don’t like when people, whether beloved ones or friends, or even coworker insist on me following certain rules to fit.

I hardly seek routine and that’s why I love waking up every morning, knowing that this day will be vastly different from the last.


People think because I don’t share much about my feelings that I do not have any worries. That’s not true, I worry a lot. But if something is not worth my time, I just move on. Life is short and I learnt that the harsh way.

YES I don’t mind being alone. I don’t even mind sitting at home on my own. I lived alone for many years and I loved my life.

Still I love having friends to hangout with but I don’t like that my relationships with others define me. In fact, I don’t really let anything define me. I know me, happy for being me, and I fought a lot to be that woman.


I like seeking ways to expand my mind, enjoy working with creative people because that inspires me a lot. I always want to be a better person in this missed up world.

In the end I can tell you I live my life without selling my soul to the devil. I had lots of good and bad experiences. I don’t just love. I love unconditionally, but I don’t mind if people drift away.

Damn, time flies! I have to leave office now and run, I’m gonna meet some old peeps haha! Then I’m so looking forward for my day off tomorrow. I will have a big lunch with a lovely friend and I can’t wait!!
