Things to Remember During Tough Times

I haven’t had the easiest life as of yet but growing up with multiple adversities has motivated me to thrive and be resilient. I’ve had to work really hard to take the adversities I face and get through them with grace. The summer my grandfather was passing away ignited many emotions, including grief and even guilt. The only way I knew how to get through it were in the ways I reveal in today’s video. I hope this video helps you in some way to overcome any adversity you face, that may be caused by blood cancer or another adversity on your path.

    I plan watch your video when I have a little bit more time, but I do agree that adversity helps us to grow in many ways. Thanks for sharing.

    @radiant-racheli Racheli, glad I finally caught one of your videos! They’ve been telling me for a while to check them out and i’m glad I did. It’s a wonderful vid, and my grandfather was extremely important to me as well. After he was gone, there was and still is a big hole. No denying that diagnosis uproots everything, and having to deal with normal, human emotions on top of that is difficult at time. Keep on keepin’ on, DPM
