Faith Focused

THE FOUR WORDS THAT WILL TEST YOUR FAITH, "YOU HAVE BREAST CANCER"

THE FOUR WORDS THAT WILL TEST YOUR FAITH, "YOU HAVE BREAST CANCER"

Most people start their breast cancer stories with the day they are diagnosed. I am starting mine from the day before because I was feeling great that day, I was already a breast cancer survivor, so what could go wrong?

Twenty-four hours later everything changed. My faith was tested once again.  I was told I had cancer for the second time. I was told that I needed chemo, I was told that I was going to need a mastectomy and I was told that I was going to loose my hair. My faith was now in the hands of doctors, in the chemicals that were about to kill me (to keep me alive) and the wisdom to know that everything was going to be alright. 

Not only did I now have cancer, but I was also jobless. Really, how much more can one person’s faith be tested?  After crying for about two days, I decided I needed to do something. I needed people, family, friends, and organizations to give me faith. I did not have it right now. It was hard to even see the small signs of faith. My bones ached, I was so tired I couldn’t even walk down the block, and I was an emotional wreck every time I lost more hair.  Every day was a struggle, and when I started feeling better, it was time for chemo again. 

GIRL BOSSING LIKE A BOSS

GIRL BOSSING LIKE A BOSS

A Girl Boss is a leading lady who has a list of goals. A girl boss is determined and capable of achieving everything that she has set her mind to. The girl boss may also be one that's lost her way or needs be encouraged, she may be an entrepreneur or a corporate leader, she might be an employee or even technically unemployed it's truly about what's within.

I am Shaunte Andrea Stewart (Sass) Girl Boss and Leadership Coach for Women. I have a bachelor's and a master in management and leadership. After years of studying leadership in textbooks and years of leading a staff in the corporate world, I felt compelled to help women with the aspects of leadership not found in the books. Aspects such as burnout, difficult employee and manager relationships, lack of confidence and fear of failure. So further up in this paragraph, I claimed to be a Girl Boss and I am. I am one with lots of goals, credentials, and drive. This must mean life is perfect because I must have it all figured out right?? Wrong let's look at my goal list.
