My New Normal

My New Normal

November 14, 2018

When we started the store and website that is now Stand Up Speak Up, one of the things that we were first talking about was “What Is Your Normal?” I have always believed that it is different for everyone and we wanted to show that no matter who you are, you are important and your story and life matters.

I never thought that my life would completely change over night and that I would suddenly have this new definition of normal for myself. While I still have the same family and friends by my side (who I am more thankful for than ever!) my days and the life that I live has completely changed.

I have gained a lot of comfort from my new routines. I love my Booster Juice and my diffuser.

The biggest new normal is that my hospital room has become my home for the last few weeks. Business branding is one of my superpowers and I wanted to bring that into this experience. You can see the t-shirt that helps motivate me. We have created a logo and I am making new shirts in pink, grey and white. You will see them when I start chemo.

While of course I wanted to get home to my family and dogs, the hospital was a very comforting and healing place for me. I felt a lot of love and support from the staff and knew that they were doing their best to take care of me.

Truthfully, there have been lots of dark moments in the past month. This has not been easy on anyone. But, I have never been one who can just dwell on the negative.
