Who I am

I have signed up for the Blogging 101 course and the first assignment is to introduce myself and explain why I blog.

I am a laid back easy-going woman in my late 40’s who was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2000 and again in 2003.  I am a survivor now for sightly over 11 years.  Between diagnosis, treatments and life my mind was on over load with a lot of negative thoughts.

During this time I treated myself to a camera and began snapping away.  I viewed each picture as a small piece of my soul that was saved.  As long as I was taking pictures I wasn’t thinking those negative thoughts again.  It was a time of peace.  

In May of 2011 Reflections for MY Soul the blog was born.  It was initially for uplifting quotes, positive thoughts and the occasional gentle vent session with a photo or 2 sprinkled in there somewhere. This went on for just under 3 years with roughly 20 post made during this time.

April 2014 I set my mind to truly get into this blogging thing.  I have posted and additional 240 post with all of them centered on photography, since that is what saved my Soul.    

The goal is for Reflections for My Soul blog to work hand in hand with Reflections for My Soul the book (a work in progress).  Eventually I would like to open this blog or another so that others can share how they were able to save their soul when they were facing a medical crisis.

  7. Reflections For My Soul is a beautiful name for your blog and your future book! I glanced at a few of your photos, too. I really like the greenhead ducks and the red truck. Isn’t finding your passion fun?

    I’m a fellow breast cancer survivor – but not yet in the 5 year remission period, since only 2 and a half years have elapsed. Writing, gardening, photography and a wonderful family have kept me sane and cheerful. I will follow your posts with great interest. Thank you.

    • Although no one wants to be a member of this club I welcome you. Photography saved my sanity by allowing me to escape my own mind and focus on something else for a while. I still have my moments but they are definately much less then they were in the begining.

      Thank you for following!
