The old pre-cancer me was too busy to take the time to see how someone was doing. I found my identity in being busy.
Busy is not my true identity.
Being busy was a distraction that kept me from connecting to people and activities that I loved.
- It’s never a “waste of time” to connect with someone.
- The post-cancer me has discovered the importance of “being” instead of “doing.”
- Eating is one of the critical components of staying healthy! When you eat, be present; look at your food, not your computer screen.
- Take a deep breath before you react to situations or the people around you.
- Work to stay at peace with those around you. I’m still working on this one 🙂
The new me finds her identity in being generous with people, asking how people are, and praying for them. As a result, I get just as much accomplished every day, and my stress levels are lower because I’ve taken the time to connect with people and be present in my daily surroundings.
Give the podcast a listen to discover the health habits I wish I had started 30 years ago.

I’m picky about fish. I will only purchase wild fish, and yes, I’m that obnoxious person that asks the waitstaff in restaurants where they got the fish! I know that wild is healthier, and this is why I love ButcherBox wild salmon!
Recent studies show that higher fish consumption is associated with improved immune function. The study, which looked at the cancer-fighting effects of the Mediterranean diet, found that people who reported eating less fish and more red meat showed several common abnormalities in their blood that suggested a higher risk of cancer.
Wild and smaller fish, such as salmon, are anti-inflammatory and associated with better brain, hormonal, and nervous system health.
