To change our reality and heal our bodies the secret ingredient lies in making up our mind to do so. We have the ability to fully recover and change our external circumstances exactly like those patients who are told they would never walk again yet do so, sport stars who suffer from irreversible injuries yet fully recover, or those who have suffered a life-threatening cancer and a few months later it is no where to be found. They understand the secret is having a powerful intention, believing they have the power to change their circumstances, loads of determination and the will to create what they want in life. -Inc.
I am firm believer in the power of mindset. I mean look at the placebo effect. Our minds have power, we just need to use it to our advantage.
My mindset, my attitude and my perseverance are what keep me going. Yes, I am ready to be done with chemotherapy and put this whole cancer nightmare behind me, but this diagnosis really has turned me into a better version of myself. I know I say that a lot, but I mean it. I am more grateful, more persistent, more positive, more faith-filled… just to list a few.
I posted on Facebook and Instagram recently that so many of the experts talk about excuses, the power of habits and mindset. It is so important that we start each day with the right attitude. I start my day with gratitude and writing down my goals. This is what starts the snowball effect. I write down everyday that I am an exceptional wife-mom-friend. I write down everyday that I am insanely fit. I write down everyday that I climbed Rainbow Mountain. I write down everyday that I am Cancer FREE! These goals are something I need to work toward everyday. So, if I want to be an exceptional wife-mom-friend, I need to show up 100%. If I want to be cancer free, I need to keep pushing forward with my chemotherapy and my quarterly skin checks. If I want to be insanely fit- I need to move my body everyday. Yes, even on treatment days. Have I climbed Rainbow Mountain- NOT YET, but I WILL… I mean, come on, I’m an OVERCOMER!
If you can’t tell in my writing tone, I am happy. My labs did something they haven’t done in four weeks. They went up! My White Blood Cells went up to 3.3! My Hemoglobin went up to 12.1! WHAT? HOW? Well, besides your prayers, adding some additional supplements, drinking 80 ounces of water and moving my body for 30 minutes I also focused on my mindset. That my friends made the difference. I am choosing to feel well, I am manifesting wellness. Therefore, I will be well.
PLUS…. I’m half done with the Dirty Dozen!
Sara, how can you talk about your mindset, when just last week you shared that you cried. Yes, last week I cried, but you know what, I’m human too. We can’t be 100% all the time, we can try, but to get back to where you want to be, you need to acknowledge your feelings, emotions, your frustrations. Crying is a great coping mechanism. It’s an emotional release that can be beneficial to your mental health. I acknowledged my feelings, I let it all out and in doing so I felt better and could refocus on my mindset.
I encourage you to take a step back and focus on your mindset. What do you want out of life? How do you want to face life? I promise you, if you start focusing on your mindset you will see an improvement in your attitude and your outlook on life.
Before I leave you, I have a huge favor to ask. There is a sweet little boy, Lennon, who was recently diagnosed with B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He also has an unfavorable gene mutation called KMT2A and the leukemia is in his brain and spinal fluid. He has a long road ahead of him and his family could really use your help, if you have a spare dollar, I ask that you please consider helping this sweet boy and his family during this time: Lennon’s GoFundMe
