Many cancer survivors learn some (or many) life lessons that only cancer can teach you. Like a slap in the face, a frigid cold shower that won’t turn warm, or a frying pan handle to a three year old that makes you acutely aware of you in this moment, right now and prepares you for the next leg of your journey in life.
My guest this week, Tamyra Kelly is no exception. She learned about forgiveness and letting go of hurt and pain in a way that only cancer could let her release. She realized that she was harboring anger and frustration and needed to live free. An evangelical minister, gospel singer and basketball lover, she turned her passion for helping other women into a career of motivational speaking and teaching others how to live free.
Tamyra put her faith in God and truly let Him take the wheel. Information for her commitment to helping others can be found at www.wecanlivefree.com Tamyra also hosted a women’s conference in Fort Wayne with 600 attendees titled “Go Get Your Towel Back, You Don’t Know My Story“.
The most powerful lesson I learned through breast cancer, was the beautiful simplicity and rhythm to my life, I just needed to allow it. I still love vacations and adventures, but some of the best days are just “normal“. Going to work, coming home to make dinner, catching up on my day with my husband, going for a walk in our neighborhood, watching a tv show together. There is beauty in the “normal“. I have also learned that I still have more to learn, and that’s ok. My other guests teach me, my fellow pink Podcasters teach me, life teaches me... I just need to listen!
