I thought I would do a post today with different Inspiriting quotes
that I had got in a book when I was going thru breast cancer myself, to give Hope and Comfort to all those women that are going through breast cancer now and those like myself that have survived or other like myself that have survived yet still are having to take medication to stay alive for the Fight for the CURE! I thought I would also put a few quotes that my family/friends at that time had sent me to encouraged me to be strong and that I was very much loved. It's been 10years now and I've been ok since I have been on my meds to keep the cancer cells that are still inside me dormant. I been lucky to see my 4year old son Kai now grow to a fine young man of 15 and now is a 10th grader in high school. So there is hope for all. I also want to thank all of you my dearest friends/followers for always being supportive of me during these last 3year and this last year which has been very hard for my family. You are the best and I love you all very much. Also to the few of you dearest friends that have been there through it all and you know who you are I love you ... Here a few I found in a book of ladies that a public eye that went through breast cancer...
''I don't know what my path is yet. I'm just walking on it." Olivia Newton-John ~ "I didn't want to live my life as a victim; I didn't want to use the excuse that I coulda or shoulda or woulda had a great life, but I had some bad luck. It has always been the 'bad luck' or the negatives in my life that have taught me and shaped me, and I wasn't going to lose this time around. Cancer was going to be my blessing. I was going to learn and grow and survive my way." Suzanne Somers ~ "If children have the ability to ignore all the odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them. When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope? We have two options, Medically and emotionally; Give up or fight like hell." Lance Armstrong [note lance Armstrong was able to share his perspective when his then-fiancee Sheryl Crow was diagnosed with breast cancer.] " I have had a wonderful life. I have never regretted what I did. I regret things I didn't do. All my life I've done things at a moment's notice. Those are the things I remember. I was given courage, a sense of adventure and a little bit of humor." Ingrid Bergman. " I never felt a psychic wound; In ever felt hopelessly mutilated, after all, Jerry and I had been married a good many years, and our love had proved itself. I had no reason to doubt my husband. If he'd lost a leg, I wouldn't have deserted him, and I knew he wouldn't desert me because I was unfortunate enough to have a mastectomy. -Betty Ford. " When the going got tough, I really had to draw on many of the same competitive instincts I did when I was skating. I really had to put my head down and stay positive. I had to fight. -Peggy Fleming " The key to life is accepting challenges. Once someone stops doing this, he's dead [ 'this first lady of the American screen lost her battle with breast cancer in 1989] ' It's how you handle adversity, not how its affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit. '' Bill Clinton~
Now for quote that my family gave me during my fight of Breast Cancer & Lymphoma- which I have been fighting for almost just all long...
Know that you are love and supported on this journey-
'Understanding is the first step to acceptance + only with acceptance can there be recovery.'' -Dumbledore-
''Forget the former things, do not dwell on the past, See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up,
do you not see it? I am making a way in the desert + streams in the wasteland.'' -Isaiah 43:18-19
'God doesn't always deliver us from things; often he walks us THROUGH them.' -Never lose Heart-
'Sustain me according to Your promise and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed. Uphold me, and I will be will be delivered.' -Psalm 119:116-117
'We will still have days that seem dark. In those times, God tell us to trust in his name + rely on when he is. Stand still + cry out. He'll lead you on from there + when once again you can see light, you'll be able to see the footprints you made in the dark. Never will He hold your hand more tightly than when He is leading you through the dark'. -Breaking Free
'So don't be anxious about tomorrow. God will take care of your tomorrow too. Live one day at a time.' -Matthew 6:34
'Certainly we are to pray, plan + prepare for tomorrow, but we are not to worry about what might happen. Entrust tomorrows to him and live just today, Walking with God through today's 24hours is difficult enough! -Calm My Anxious Heart
The secret to life is know when Enough is Enough! -Dr Vincent Ryan
'You Are Worthy' You are a child of the Universe, no less than the trees and the stars. You have a right to be here - Desiderata
Not worrying about it doesn't mean not dealing with it - It means not turning it over & over in your mind & thoughts. Give it to God trusting that He will give you further direction if and when it needs to be dealt with in the present -not the future or the past.
I'm sure now I'll see God's goodness in the happy earth. Stay with God! Take heart. Don't quit, I'll say it again; stay with God.
Well these are a few of the quotes that helped me during my time of struggle, pain and strength that my Sister and niece Malia had gave me to help me get through the hard times of my breast Cancer and Lymphoma too. I hope that these quotes and the ones about will help any of you ladies/men that might be reading my blog. I truly do understand what you are going through... much love and kind heart to you all. We all have to stick together on this one and pray that one day there is a CURE. I am surviving day to day. Although I lost my grandmother on my mother side to breast cancer & still taking my cancer meds every day since 2005 to the day its is truly my time. I am still here. God bless.
