Inspiration for anyone dealing with this soap opera called life.
My mum passed on 2 weeks after this recording, following a 2-year battle with breast cancer.
Beloved’s Day 13-2-13. “It’s not the news, It’s how you recieve it”.
According to his mum in the video, it is not the news that is bad, but it is the spirit which you receive the news with that defines how bad it is. She further said whatever one is passing through, he/she should try to see goodnews in it. When you’re able to take your bad news as goodnews, you’ll be able to build up your faith, and overcome.

On the hand, while New York Fashion Week is most well known as an event dominated by the world’s most successful models, one group of breast cancer survivors made the event their own this week, proudly strutting their stuff on the catwalk in an empowering runway show.
The Cancerland show on Sunday afternoon saw dozens of women walking down the runway in lingerie designs by Ana Ono, with many choosing to proudly show off their mastectomy scars as they made their way down the catwalk.
‘We are thrilled to have the opportunity to show that these inspiring individuals walking our runway are no different than any other person walking New York Fashion Week, or sitting in the audience or even riding the subway or walking into your neighborhood coffee shop,’ Ana Ono designer and breast cancer survivor Donna Donofree told The Culture Trip of the show.
