“When nothing is sure, everything is possible.” – Margaret Drabble
When we encounter a detour, we encounter uncertainty. We can’t see what’s ahead or where the detour will lead us, but despite that uncertainty, there are always opportunities along the way – learning a new route to our destination, new scenery, new perspectives.
As I was navigating my career detour, I suddenly found myself confronting a second unexpected detour. My health had decided to head down a path of its own, a very unfamiliar and unsettling path along which I was diagnosed with follicular lymphoma, a blood cancer. I am grateful beyond words to be able to share with you that I am currently in remission and receiving maintenance treatments as a safeguard. My diagnosis and subsequent fight admittedly stunned, scared and challenged me, but as I found my footing, I gained strength as well as some of those new perspectives that uncertainty reveals. Love, gratitude and positivity proved to be tremendously powerful in helping me traverse through this rough terrain.
