Celebrating Cancer Survivorship

Praise the Lord I am 2 years cancer free today!!!
I am celebrating in FL. Traveling with my hubby (he is working I am enjoying)
I will be enjoying the beach on Thursday...YAY!

Here are some ways people celebrate cancer survivorship:

* Plant a tree
* Get your hair done (there may have been a day when you didn’t have any!)
* Throw a party, or get a friend to host one
* Take a hike and stop to smell the surroundings
* Join a group that connects cancer patients. Maybe you can encourage someone who is going through what you have already survived
* Start writing a book or a blog about your experience
* Do something that scares you- sing in public, go on a rollercoaster, step in the mud with no shoes on, pet a tarantula (Yikes...anything with a tarantula is a big NO for me)
* Try a new food or activity
* Organize a blood or marrow donor recruitment drive
* Write a thank you to someone who made a difference to you on your journey
* Start a charm bracelet with charms that commemorate your journey
* For the more risky- get a tattoo reminding you of how strong you are
* Go outside and BREATHE the air
* Plan a dream vacation, even if you never take it
* Join a fundraiser like Light the Night or The Ride to Conquer Cancer
* Make 2 lists. The first one will be all the things you regret or feel guilty about in your life. The next list will be all the things you are grateful for in your life. Burn the first one and put the second one under your pillow
* Do a painting or draw an image of your cancer experience
* Spend the day with the person or people you love most
* Do an activity to increase your awareness of your body- take a gentle yoga class or get a massage
* Put on some music and dance- with or without a partner
