One thing I always say is that my God-given purpose is for me to share my story with others and it's been my purpose since before I was even thought of. I never really wanted to talk about cancer that has tried to kill me or the life experiences that I had gone through because I felt like talking about it was giving it life. However, with telling my story, I've come to realize that my battles are more relatable than not. There are so many people experiencing the same things in life and need to hear the story of someone else to help them get through their trial. Life will sometimes get you to a place where you can't pull yourself up out of the pit you are in but the words of someone else just might encourage you to take the steps needed to get you out.
Cancer Wellness Magazine is an online lifestyle magazine that shares the stories of cancer survivors/fighters, resources, events, and so much more for those in the cancer community. I've been battling this thing called cancer for a while now and with each battle have come different emotions. Last month, I did an interview where I shared my story with Cancer Wellness Magazine. I don't think I've ever been so nervous in my life. Even through my nervousness, I told my story with truth and honesty. I was vulnerable in ways that I had not been in a while. Sharing my story/testimony is an outlet for me. I feel like with each time, I learn something new about what this life is teaching me. While the struggle is definitely real, this process is giving me more insight into me. I'm accessing the Tameka that God has always intended for me to become and it's a great feeling!
We may not always think so but we all have a story to tell. I'm grateful for the opportunity to share my story on different platforms. I pray that it continues to bless those that it is intended to reach.
