Do you want to feel vibrant, look your best and perhaps save your life? On this week’s episode of “Happiness through Hardship” – The Podcast we dive into a past episode that can help you do just that, whether you’re touched by cancer or not! I’m honored to re-release this episode with husband/wife duo, Dr. Lorenzo Cohen and Alison Jeffries and co-authors of Anticancer Living – Transform Your Life and Health with the Mix of Six. Together they have helped many people, including me, thrive with cancer, cope with other chronic illnesses and feel their very best!
Are you in a book club now? Do you read the book and analyze with friends or show up just ready to have fun and possibly learn something? I’ve been in a number of book clubs throughout the years with different directions.
A Culture Club – No Boy George, just a bunch of fun neighbors sharing our interests together and having fun!
A Wine Club with a Book – Need I say more? Not many conversations about the book, yet still a blast.
Reading Night Out Club – Book reading mandatory. Questions outlined beforehand. Always left informed.
All of the above can be fun and inspirational. Just like picking friends, we have to pick the right book club that fits our wants/needs. I’ve always been more of non-fiction reader and for some reason always wanted a non-fiction book club. So here I am – inviting YOU to join this virtual wellness book club – a BOOK-ish Club.

You get the phone call or email that a friend has just been diagnosed with [insert crappy diagnosis here] and you don’t know what to do. Do you call? If you call, what do you say? You opt not to call because:
1. You aren’t sure you should know.
2. You don’t know what you would say because you haven’t been in their shoes.
3. Or your friend must be swamped and you don’t want to bother her.
So, how then do you help a sick friend?
As a breast cancer survivor, I’m not sure whether I love October or fear it. Seeing the spectrum of pink colors everywhere can be overwhelming. It’s a constant reminder that I’m sick. And yes, I know that thousands of women and men are afflicted with this disease yearly, so the pink promotion isn’t about me being ill. But sometimes, I just get inside my head. My thoughts go to the scary places that we all want to push away. And sometimes, I just want to cry.
