Inspired…a survivor shares her 11 invaluable lessons



So much of this feature by Peggy Nolan resonated with me that I had to share it here with you:

11 Invaluable Lessons I learned from Having Breast Cancer

Thanks to Kristin Barton Cuthriell for sharing it on The Snowball Effect, where I found the lessons compelling and had to read on.



About Vicki Flaherty

I feel most alive when I am creating, whether through my writing and poetry, gardening and photography, or simply living my life each day. Running and yoga enrich my being. Travel opens me to new possibilities and greater awareness. I am happiest when I’m with my husband Jim. I share my gratitude for all the gifts in my life on my This Abundantly Delicious Life blog. I find a special joy in helping people succeed. I’ve done something valuable when I’ve helped a colleague or friend see their brilliance and express their full potential. I have awesome opportunities to do this as an industrial/organizational psychologist through leadership, mentoring, coaching, career and other talent programs. I try to encourage Leading with Intention at my blog of this name. As a breast cancer survivor, I found comfort and hope in writing. Poetry flowed through me like a river of healing during my diagnosis and treatment, which I share on my Mostly My Heart Sings blog, that I might offer encouragement and a place of grace and heart for those seeking comfort and hope along their journey.

  1. WOW. . talk about recipe for life. I love it, and wish every single person in the world would read it and internalize it. Imagine if a corporation were to leverage this useful wisdom! If you don’t mind, I’d like to share it with an executive I’m working with at a hospital… They are about to embark on an incredible journey, and keeping the end in mind would be a valuable compass. Thank you, Vicki!!!
