My pre-cancer self knew nothing of the disease. I stumbled through the four and a half months it took to get a diagnosis like a kindergartener in a graduate course. At six and a half months in, I had a mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. By then, my brig...

Tears are a normal part of the cancer struggle. Is hiding them isolating you and making it harder to get the support you deserve?

What it Takes to be a Good Patient

There’s a list of things we’re supposed to do as good patients. And then, there’s the reality of living with cancer and doing the best we can.

How to Cope with the Pressure to be Over Cancer

The emotional fallout of cancer takes a heavy toll. Experiencing your feelings in your own way, at your own pace, can be a challenge.

Who Owns the Voice in Your Head?
When I was in the fifth grade, my parents walked across the street to meet my teacher for a parent-teacher conference. Of all the teachers I’ve had from kindergarten through law school, Mr. Clinton gets the “World’s Best Teacher“ award hands down. As a mode...

Why I’m Daring to Ask “What Do I Want?”
I was raised to be a quiet, polite, good girl. Of course, nurture alone didn’t form me. As an introvert, it’s entirely my nature to hang back to get the lay of the land and advance slowly. Add to that the fact that I’m big sister to eight brothers and siste...

Getting a cancer diagnosis pulls the rug out from under your life. It's a struggle to give up expectations and learn to accept the unknown. Read more at CURE:

The stress of cancer doesn't leave us at bedtime. Focusing on relaxation, rather than sleep, can get you the healing rest you need.

Introduction

Debbie Woodbury knows we’re all survivors of something. Her "somethings," include family dysfunction, being laid off, miscarriages, infertility, and cancer. It was surviving cancer that pushed her to stop thinking about writing and actually sit down to do it, resulting in her first blog and two books. Now, she’s moving beyond cancer and leaning into joy (via yoga, mindfulness, gratitude, walking, relationships, interior decorating and all the other "little things" that make life worth living.) Debbie is a monthly contributor at Positively Positive, blogs for The Huffington Post, and is an inspirational speaker, wife, mother, and a former very stressed out attorney. You’ll find Debbie’s first blog about surviving cancer at WhereWeGoNow. To find meditations on creating joy and to sign up for Debbie’s newsletters, click here and follow her on Facebook and Twitter.
