Affirmations. They are powerful. They are inspiring. They can encourage and uplift. Affirmations are visual reminders to always think positive, even during the most difficult situations.
Using them has changed the way I live and how I react to the stressors in my life. Utilizing affirmations and mantras helps me not just focus on what’s going on now, but helps me see my way to the other side. When I am stressing out about something or I feel like I am in a bad place, writing an affirmation helps me focus on what’s most important.
It’s like what the great Stephen Covey said in Habit #2 of 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: “Begin with the end in mind.”
I never forgot that habit, and affirmations help us do just that.
While going through something so difficult as breast cancer, you may often feel defeated and sad. These are normal reactions and by no means do I want you to not feel those things—you are human. What I don’t want you to do is wallow in these feelings. Cry it out and have your moment, and then move forward with positivity. Writing and reading affirmations can help you do just that.
I am sharing 10 Encouraging Affirmations for Women Going Through Breast Cancer, so that you have a visual aid to assist you when you may not be feeling your best mentally, physically, or emotionally. I hope that these affirmations also inspire you to write your own, too.
