Cancer Truth Note: #236
We choose our response in every moment to everything. Are you living in fear and worry or gratitude, happiness, and action?
It is absolutely necessary and ok to feel all the feelings. If the feelings seem to be more negative than positive it might be time for a reframe.
Yesterday was about the possibility of recurrence or a different cancer entirely. Guess what that exists for every single human.
There are times when we can be mad, sad, fearful, etc. Feel those feelings and then find gratitude in your day. Do something that makes you happy. Take positive actions. Feeling negative feelings is necessary to be a healthy human. You are not a stepford person. Finding gratitude in the challenge can keep us moving forward and enable us to take the next action we need to take.
What challenge can you find some gratitude for today?
