Darkness has a way of creeping into our lives, and when it does it’s imperative that we maintain a positive mindset in order to find our way out of it. Today on the podcast, my guest Kamelia Britton joins me for the second time to talk about how she sought to do this in her own life. When her travel adventures came to a screeching halt after she was diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer.
Kamelia is the founder of The Hackerette, a travel blog through which she shares tips for travel hacking, how to grow your brand, travel destinations, and much more. I had the opportunity to welcome her on the podcast nearly two years ago when she joined me to talk about travel hacking. Since then, she’s seen significant growth in her brand and has been able to pursue travel blogging full-time. All while continuing to explore the world and visit new and exciting places!
However, on a fateful day in July of last year, Kamelia received some shocking news. News that would turn her life upside down. She was diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer, an unusual form of breast cancer that doesn’t have any of the receptors that are commonly found, making it rare. Despite receiving this terrible news, and the hardships that were involved with balancing treatment and everyday life. Kamelia sought to seek positive outcomes and to be a source of inspiration to others who might be struggling with challenges in their own lives.
Kamelia also learned different health and wellness practices that she’s implemented into her life. Which she’s now sharing in her blog, and she’s also looking to host wellness retreats in the future. In this episode, Kamelia tells us more of her story, and we discuss some of the things that she’s learned throughout this ordeal. We also talk about how to foster a strong mindset, and of course, a little bit of travel! This was an awesome conversation and a story that I found very inspiring. Because not only did Kamelia survive this fight with cancer, she thrived!
