Repeat after me ... I AM PERFECT!
When cancer strikes, it can rip you open to your very core. Everything feels exposed to the world. You get poked and prodded relentlessly. You may start to feel like you have no control over your body anymore. Your life revolves around doctor appointments, lab visits. You may feel as if you should rent a bed at the hospital because you're there so often for diagnostic tests and procedures. I know because I felt this way.
I got into "Survivor Mode", just going through the motions, doing whatever it took to make it to the next day. It was like being stuck on a hamster wheel. No energy left. Your body feeling like a blob. Self-esteem? What's that? You may feel detached and isolated. I finally found that I needed to use positve affirmations to lift my spirits - to make me feel whole again. I read the book, You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay.
This one affirmation in particular, really hit home. I had to reaffirm that I WAS perfect. I'd encourage you to try some positive affirmations. You may not feel the emotion behind the words at first, but eventually, you'll start to remember the perfection that lies within you. Have a blessed day ...
