Diamonds on your inside. That’s what I want. Don’t you? This is a place to visit for guidance, humor and wit about healthy, happy lives. We only have one. Make it count!

I learned all of this the hard way. Diagnosed October 2009 with node positive breast cancer, I embarked on a year long journey finding my own happiness, health and perspective. Trust me. This was no cake walk. It was truly the hardest thing I have ever experienced. I would have rather taken a class to learn all of these things. But, I wasn’t given a choice.

Since then, I decided to follow my passion: health and happiness, and inspiring others to do the same. First came the health counseling degree and then …

Life is too important to ignore the positives.

  2. You are not going to believe the goose bumps I just got!

    First, you know I love your talented writing and so I love your blog and I will be surfing it regularly.

    Second, I have not talked to you all summer. I was at my computer and I had just come across a favorite pic of mine from 2008 when we went to see Madonna’s concert…… the very moment I hit send, and by send I mean I was sending/feeling good thoughts for you and when I went to my inbox, there it was…

  4. You are so awesome Leslie. I’ve been making a journey this year too. I’ve been trying and doing new things – a lot that scare me, a lot that I will never do again, and some that I will continue doing. It’s fun, it’s scary…but it’s living. I have had friends face so many things this year and I’ve lost some to terrible tragedies….I’m not going to sit back and let life pass me by anymore…that was my lesson..it’s too bad I had to wait until 43 years old to realize this. You inspire me. Thank you.

    • I feel the same way! Trying new things are a little scary for sure. We have no excuse but to push full steam ahead. Make it fun, right? You seem like you are doing great! Thank you for your constant support. XO

  5. you are AMAZING……… I need more……….. that JELLO MOLD ad is something straight from my past……… you would have made my Grandmother proud…….. I won’t tell her that her Thanksgiving cranberry mold wasn’t all that good for us………. she did add celery and chopped walnuts…….. maybe that’s why she lived to be 100! Keep those diamonds sparkling!

  6. Woohoo! I found it! So excited for you Leslie and can’t wait to read more. What a great and fitting new adventure to embark on after these last few years. I’m so warmed to see you looking, feeling and thinking great! xoxo
