Hey there, fellow warriors of life's rollercoaster! If you're looking for a story filled with breast cancer, Xbox battles, and single-parent hilarity, you've come to the right place. Buckle up as I take you on a wild ride through my journey of recovery, juggling motherhood, university, and launching a business while maintaining a somewhat tenuous grasp on sanity!
I was also navigating my final year at university. Balancing surgery and radiotherapy with assignments and exams became an Olympic sport. I practically had a Ph.D. in multitasking, (or at least I like to think so!) ... Majoring in caffeine consumption with a minor in sleep deprivation. ☕️ But hey, if I could survive a breast cancer diagnosis, surely I could survive late-night study sessions, right? And did I mention that I was also trying to keep the freelance consultancy work fires burning? Because, you know, paying bills is still a thing, even in the midst of chaos. A girl's gotta eat!
But hold on, the rollercoaster ride doesn't end there. In the middle of this merry madness, I decided to start my business. Because why not add "entrepreneur" to my already impressive list of titles? My mission: to empower young women who've faced breast cancer beast, just like I did. – I get it. The scars, the uncertainty, the sheer absurdity of it all. I'm here to show them that they can bounce back from boobs to business!
Fast forward to today, I'm through the worst of it. Life has found a smidgen of calm, and I can actually hear myself think sometimes (a rare treat, let me tell you). My days are still a whirlwind of football practice drop-offs, Xbox competitions, and trying to decipher my ADHD champs latest tantrums. But now, I'm also in the wild world of raising funds and finding suppliers for my business. It's a comedy of errors, a daily circus, and sometimes a teary-eyed drama. But you know what? I'm still here, and I'm still cracking on.
Life handed me lemons, but I'm turning them into fu*king lemonade. If I can do it, you can too! So, fellow supermums and breast cancer survivors, let's toast to the chaos, embrace the tantrums, and conquer this sh*t with a smile – one football game, one Xbox battle, and one business endeavor at a time! 🍋💪
