Content As Equity & An Update on Life WPCP: 169
6 days ago
It's been way too long since I've published a solo show and I miss you guys. Even though life has been a little crazy I knew I needed to stop and take the time to publish a solo show and update you all on what's been happening. I know I've been a little quiet lately and I'm super appreciative that you guys have stuck with me.
Before we get into Content as Equity, I think I'll start with the update on life and what's been going on that has created my semi-absent state. I'm warning you now that there may be some esoteric moments, lessons, and takeaways, which is also why I knew I needed to get to the other side of what's been going on before I talked about it. Fortunately, I'm grateful that I've finally grasped my own 'processes' and know that I need to allow myself the space to work through what's going on without judging how I'm feeling. I also know that no matter what I'm feeling, I won't stay there. In other words, "this too shall pass."
Where to start...
I'm going to be a little cryptic with my explanation (which seems pretty contrary to the whole idea of a life update) because it's not only my story to tell. There are other people involved and it's out of love and respect for them that I'm going to be a little ambiguous.
I'll start with the good news (most of it is all good news now, but it's been pretty trying to say the least).
My Mom finished up her last round of chemo about a month ago. This was the second bout with breast cancer (first time was in 2000). The first time it was stage 1 and she had a lumpectomy and all has been well. She went through chemo and radiation the first time all while working full time (she's pretty amazing). Unfortunately, her oncologist was a bit of a numpty (although he didn't start out that way), and told her she could skip mammograms (this was in 2013). Thankfully he retired, she was given a young, female oncologist who had her get a mammogram and they found something. This was a ductal carcinoma, also stage 1 (at one point they said stage 0.... not sure what that means, but it was still hopeful). She underwent a mastectomy and is on the other side of all of that. I will say that this time seemed to physically take more of a toll on her than the first time. Probably because she's almost 20 years older and has had a couple other health challenges in the interim. The good news is that she's done with everything, she

I'm somewhere between a complete newbie and a master web designer (much, much closer to the newbie end of that scale) and as I build my Wordpress site, I love having Kim's tips and tricks coming through my headphones!
