Believe In Yourself ...

Remember the old addage, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going?" Well, it IS true! Think back to times in your life when you were at a low point. Try to remember what you did in each situation to get through it. No one said life would be easy. We've all had our own trials and tribulations, but, we survived!   And, so it will be with your cancer diagnosis. There will be good times and not so good times but you WILL get through it. 

I've been a "Quote Keeper" since I was a young child.  I love words and the power they convey.  One of the things I did years ago, long before my diagnosis, was to make a sunshine jar. I wrote positive quotes and affirmations on slips of paper, folded them up and placed them in the jar. Then, whenever I needed a boost, I'd pick one and it was enough to lift my spirits and snap me back into "right thinking."  I have positive quotes and affirmations on small index cards and keep them in my purse or car. Another thing that helped me was to write affirmations on sticky notes and place them everywhere. I have them on my desk. On my computer tower. On my vision board. Seeing those positive words remind me that I am strong. I am beautiful. I will find my miracle. I will reach my goals. Believe in yourself ... the mind is a powerful thing!
