Hello, hello! And welcome!
My name is Alyssa Burkus. I am a business owner, wife, mom, daughter, sister, green smoothie fanatic, and cancer survivor. All of these roles play a huge part in my life, and I’ve finally stopped trying to compartmentalize them. Instead, I’m weaving them together to bring the strengths from each role into creating a life that matters.
This blog is a series of stories about living life to the fullest. I have struggled with this deeply over the years, even when I thought I was achieving it, but finally I am figuring out how to move past the noise and create the life I want to live.
The stories here are also about moving beyond whatever is holding you back – illness, fear, stress, insecurities – and shifting your life into gear.
While some of my stories have a cancer focus – about diagnosis, survival and living live beyond treatment – this isn’t a cancer blog. It’s a passion-about-life blog. It’s a healing blog. And I hope, it will be a blog that helps others in their journey too.
Thank you so much for spending some time with me here.
