How did this come to be you ask? How did this nonprofit lady get so caught up in lifestyle? I've always had a mindset of being my best me so that's not new. But in 2014 or so, I was going through a stressful situation. One night the words "no stress, no struggle, no strain” came to me in a dream. Most dreams I would forget but these words stuck with me. After a year or so of using the phrase in casual conversations and as a tool to reduce my stress, I began to wonder what else this phrase was for. In 2016, I emailed two designers my ideas for using the phrase. No response. In 2017, I started the trademarking process for the phrase. That same year, I paid for a product that would be connected to the phrase but I never got the product-- or a refund. I was upset and disappointed but I couldn’t let the idea die. I kept writing ideas but was slow moving things forward.
But then three words changed my life.
You have cancer.
September 2017, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thankfully, it was removed in December 2017 and I am cancer free. After encouraging others and finding a new level of strength that could only come from God, I became more determined to bring this idea to life. Exercise, healthy eating and stress free living are one the most common recommendations for lowering cancer risk. Who knew this God-given phrase from 2014 would take on yet another meaning in 2017?
