Celebrating 3 Years Cancer Free!Jan 03, 2022
On January 9th 2019 I heard those dreaded words “you have cancer.” I remember that day so well.
I was standing in my office at work. I took the call just as professionally as I would any other “professional” call, but what do you say to someone when they say, ‘yes, it’s cancer?’
Thankfully, this is my 3rd anniversary of being cancer free. I’d like to share what I have learned along the way.
Mindset is everything – what you believe about life and your future is everything. You first have to make up your mind that you are going to fight, because you want to live. You have to make plans for the future and then you have to plan to be there in that future to make sure those plans are followed through on.
Getting healthy is not a straight line – there are a lot of ups and downs in getting to your best health, especially if you spent most of your life on a diet and working out to exhaustion to punish yourself for eating too much. You have to make healthy choices every day, not to lose weight, but to have energy and to live.
Taking care of yourself is your greatest gift – so many of us spend so much time trying to get ahead, dig ourselves out of a hole, put all our efforts into taking care of other people, that we forget to take care of ourselves. We don’t pay attention to what the stress of life does to our bodies, and our minds.
On this 3rd anniversary, I would like to celebrate with a wish for you – I wish for you that you will explore the gift of taking care of yourself, and what that means for you. It could mean asking for help or finding small ways everyday to laugh, to play, and to do the things that you love.
Remember that self-care is not selfish!
Always…Take Care of You!
