Please Take the Time to Smile :)

  

Hello My Beauties~

 I apologize for not writing a blog last week! I’ve been so busy with school and theatre. I am now in 5 theatrical productions. It’s been very exciting and a great experience, but rather stressful. Breast Cancer, in many ways, is also stressful; but always has an experience that we can learn from. The treatments, the pain, and the new exhaustion for simple tasks can wear anyone down; however, it is so easy to let your mind become just as down and under as the body is.  The slippery slope of depression and helplessness is very real.  But I am going to tell you – don’t let cancer consume your mind too! 

Having Cancer yourself or being a close witness to a loved one with Cancer can be a way of learning new ways of life. The mind has always been a place where one can escape too. The mind is a personal haven that cannot be controlled by anyone but yourself.  So, in your everyday life, think of the good that comes from this disease! Think about your family, your job, your hopes and dreams. Take the time to smile and laugh at least once a day. Go about your normal day and don’t let Cancer control you. On a side note, studies have shown that those who think positively and are healthy mentally spend less time in the hospital than those who do not.  

I wish all of you luck in your battle against Cancer. One day, we will find the cure. Have a splendid week and remember to find one thing to smile about. J
