Mabel is the most amazing inspirational woman, who is currently kicking cancer’s butt for a third time!
I’d like to introduce you to one of my very inspiring clients, who will make you laugh, cry and want to hug her forever!
She loves her work teaching homeless teenagers important life skills. To change a child’s outlook on life from negative to positive. She is empowering them so they can take control of their lives or situation that they struggle with. This is an amazing power to have.
Mabel came in for my 40 over forty project, and her story had me in tears. She is so inspiring that I wanted to share it with everyone. After a life of pain, suffering and getting back up again, and again, nothing is stopping this 46 year old lady.
If we could all have half as much of a love of life that this amazing woman has, the world would be a happier place.
It’s now time to hand the pen to the amazing woman that is Mabel. She will open her heart up to you a little – get ready.
I lost both parents by the age of 10, and had to grow up very fast. Having my first child while at college was no easy task. I had no choice but to ask my school principal if I could bring him to school with me, just so I could finish my schooling. I’m so grateful for Tamaki College.
I took responsibility of my education while also stepping into motherhood, with the support of the school.
I have had a lot more heartache in my life after being diagnosed with cancer not once, but 3 times!!!
At 18 months old with non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, I beat that one.
Then at 42, they told me I had stage 3 bowel cancer. Again, I beat it!
Last year at 45 years old, I was told I had liver cancer. This time they told me I was had 9 months to live without the operation, chemo and radiation. That was well over a year ago.
BUT, what doctors don’t know is that my mindset is more powerful than any sickness they will diagnose me with. My will to live is so strong. I wake up every morning falling in love with my life.
My whanau is my sunrise in the morning and my sunset in the afternoon.
I fell in love with myself in my 40’s, after my second diagnosis and I found my inner strength – in my eyes that was so beautiful.
One thing I’d say 18 year old self? Dream Big live life with no regrets. Where your focus goes, your energy flows.
My words for the younger generation of women – Don’t live with limits they restrict you. You are the Author of your life story.
Make it great.
If you can believe it you can achieve it.
Inhale life. Exhale Gratitude
Words straight from the mouth of this very amazing woman!
