Do you know someone going through a cancer journey? I’ve worked with all sorts of clients who’ve had cancer and I’ve even had close family members go through it and come out on the other side.
I’ve witnessed that it can be a time where there’s fear, doubt and discouragement. I’ve also seen incredible people embrace the experience as an opportunity to get clarity on what they really want and shift their priorities in order to experience ultimate health.
One of my remarkable clients, Tanya West, is courageously hosting a summit this week (November 2-4) with a variety of exciting speakers (including yours truly) and I wanted to share it with you because it takes the cancer journey and fills it with hope, inspiration and an opportunity to cultivate a deep sense of trust that all is well, even though circumstances may appear otherwise.

There’s no cost and attendees will come away with solid tools to create the incredible life they were meant to live.
Tanya is an exceptional human being who has learned so much from her cancer experience. She wants anyone who’s going through the journey to know that there are brighter days ahead.

And just for fun, I want to share my kids’ Halloween costumes with you, because, speaking of courageous, that’s just what they are.
Oakley’s friend group of girls decided to go as fairies and they asked him to be TinkerBell. He embraced the challenge and we went hunting at Value Village for the get-up. Even though it was 2 days before costume day at school, we were surprised to find exactly what he needed. The dress was about a size 3 or 4 (and he’s 13), so we also needed to get a layering skirt, but overall, I definitely think his outfit says Tinkerbell. One of his friend’s mom saw a photo of him and said, “Wow. The popular boys have really changed since I was a kid!”
Zoe found a spectacular gown while we were thrifting. She painted “I’m Sorry” on a sash and went to school as a formal apology. Before she went to school in her fabulous ensemble, she asked, “What if no one else dresses up?” I said, “Well, you could rock it, or you could come home and change. Either would be totally fine.”
When she got to school, it appeared her fears were confirmed - no one else was in costume. I repeated by text that she could come home if she wanted, but she decided to stay and rock it. I NEVER would have been that courageous at her age and I felt so proud of her. In awe, actually. As the day went on, she saw a few other costumed students, so I said, “Now you know who would make good friend material!”
And now Halloween is done (thank goodness - not my favourite day of the year) and it’s November, hooray! I think lots of amazing things will happen this month. Lately, I’ve been saying, “Dazzle me Universe!” and that’s exactly what I’m anticipating for November. May you also intend that the Universe offers up something spectacular.
