CFTC…the recipe for breast cancer soup.
Cancer of any kind is scary as hell. Our human minds think we’re invincible…until we hear the “C” word.
I was devastated. I initially thought I had just been handed a death sentence. My world came crashing down and life as I knew it changed. Looking back five years later, my heart is full of gratitude for my diagnosis. I would not be the brightly shining light I am today had it not been for cancer. I would not be the inspiration to others. I would not be the calm (most days 😉 ) loving mother I am. I would not be the conscious being on a mission to spread love, compassion and understanding that I am. It’s taken me five years to embrace these qualities in myself.
The thing is, you can-cervive too. Thank you @we.cancer.vive for the new perspective.
You can also thrive!
There are four things that not only helped me get through my cancer journey, they continue to expand who I am on a deep level. They are the four ingredients to what I call breast cancer soup. Along with lots of love these four ingredients make up the magic elixir that can help you in your fight against cancer. Those four things are Courage, Faith, Trust, and Connection.
It takes a tremendous amount of courage to get through any life threatening dis-ease. Webster defines courage as the ability to do something that you know is difficult or dangerous. Why “fighting cancer” isn't in the dictionary as one of the definitions I don’t know, but it should be.
In order to do something that you know is difficult there has to be a level of faith and trust that get added to the mix. Having faith means you have a strong belief in someone or something. I found that as I strengthened my faith in myself to make the best decisions for me and in the Universe to help heal me, my courage grew. Trusting my doctors to take care of me when I was scared was pretty huge too. If you can’t trust your doctors, your treatment may not be successful, so make sure to follow any gut feelings that you may need a new team member.
The last ingredient to breast cancer soup is connection. For me this was the biggest and best gift I could have ever received-connection on so many levels. Connection to my Higher Self, connection to my family and friends, connection to other cancer patients/survivors, connection to the abundant support of strangers, connection with the Universe.
So when you’re feeling like shit because chemo, surgery or radiation has knocked you on your ass, try a nice steaming bowl of breast cancer soup. The recipe is so easy anyone can make it, caregivers and children too (my boys make the best breast cancer soup).
Lots of love and healing vibes,
