It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This week BLifeToday will dedicate all posts to Breast Cancer Awareness in honor of my mother, who is a breast cancer survivor, all of our friends and family, and all of you, who have been affected by the disease.

I want to start the week off with a poem to help motivate you to keep pushing through whatever difficulty you are currently facing in your life. 

“Breathe. All of the times you felt this anxious and this overwhelmed. All the times you felt this level of pain. And remind yourself how each time, you made it through. Life has thrown so much at you, and despite how difficult things have been, you’ve survived. Breathe and trust that you can survive this too. Trust that this struggle is part of the process. And trust that as long as you don’t give up and keep pushing forward, no matter how hopeless things seem, you will make it." Daniell Koepke
