Your attitude can make you, or break you.
One of the things that the doctor told my dad several years ago when he diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer is that "attitude is everything -- if you have a good attitude about this, you can fight this & win." My dad is an amazing person. He had the best attitude of anyone I have ever seen as he went through his cancer treatments. He never complained & you could tell he didn't feel well, particularly when he had a chemo pump attached to him & he was getting radiation at the same time. Today, my dad is still cancer free. I am convinced it's because of his great attitude.
My dad & I have the same oncologist. Doc said to me when I was diagnosed, "attitude is everything -- if you have a good attitude about this, you can fight this & win." How about that? Hehe!! (I expect Doc says that to all his patients & I have met some amazing people in his waiting room).
Now, apply that to the rest of your life. Do you have a good attitude about your healthy eating plan? Your exercise plan? How about other areas of your life? I have found that by practicing a good attitude every day, everything in my life runs more smoothly. Some days it's really hard when circumstances aren't the best, but I always try to find that silver lining in those clouds & wear my smile anyway.
Blessings to you!
