Our holidays never cease to be driven by memories that preciously weave a spell of nostalgia – a time that we think of and treasure everyone and everything we have ever loved.
I welcomed launching this Blog this past year, with the hope of stepping out of the shadow of Breast Cancer, speaking compellingly about my real story and giving a voice to the complicated, often painful realities of life after the cure.
My diagnosis arrived on the heels of another family tragedy back in 2010, as well, and as I look back I recognize that although these moments are terrifying we are all given challenges in this life that, at times, seem insurmountable.
Yet, we all have a choice in how we react and respond to the inevitable adversity in our lives.
Again can be simple, yet not easy ….
So as the New Year approaches, do we again promise ourselves that next year we’ll be better and do more; you know, the old custom of “making resolutions” ~ attempting that “fresh start”?
And, yes, the New Year is now about new beginnings.
“Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day.
‘Those who have a strong sense of love and belonging have the courage to be imperfect’ ~ Brene’ Brown ~
That’s what life is about: about daring greatly, about being in the arena.

- Let ourselves be seen – deeply seen
- Love with our whole hearts, even though there’s no guarantee
- Practice gratitude and joy
- Believe that we are enough
- Be kinder and gentler to ourselves and others around us
Team Nisberg ~ Jay & my sister, Jacqualine, were in the game for every inning during Chemotherapy. Last treatment = Carvel Run ~ No plan B.
And my husband was “On Spot” in sharing our gratitude, for Jackie’s love & support, in a recent note:
“Jackie’s support was greatly appreciated, but her love for family is even more valuable”
Warmest New Year’s Wishes
