The power of belief.
I felt life come to a halt the minute the doctor uttered the first syllables of my illness.

The power of belief

I felt life come to a halt the minute the doctor uttered the first syllables of my illness.

"I'm sorry, you have..."

My heart stopped and a wave of emotions hit me. I was sad, mad, confused and suddenly I felt a new feeling that I never experienced before.

Hopelessness.

I had cancer.

He started telling me about treatment plans and medications to start on, but the more he talked the more my mind drifted away.

It would be just a matter of time until I died. Standing on shaky legs I thanked the doctor and left the room.

As an average young adult, I wasn't worrying about my college tuition or paying my bills.

Now I was in a stare off with a dreaded foe, CANCER.

That's exactly how the words were smudged in my mind. In big red angry letters.

Crying my eyes out for days, I accepted what I thought was inevitable. Death.

As the weeks faded into months, life went by in a blur.

I went to work, then school, then kemo therapy.

One day something dawned on me. The brain is a powerful weapon and the more negativity I fed to myself the more I would affect my body.

So from then on I started telling myself that I would live.

Every day I pumped myself up and talked to myself in the mirror. I told myself that I would survive.

I promised myself that even if I came an inch close to death I'd hang in there and not give up...

Five years later and cancer free, I know for a fact that there is power in believing.

There is power in a good mindset.
