Today I will celebrate what I have become. Emerging stronger from the cloud of cancer, I have pushed myself to be better than before. Today I will wear my colors and scars proudly as a testament of what was and have now become.
Today I am proud of signing up for a race with fellow survivors. I am glad I am enjoying the training and finding comfort in exercise. Today I am one step closer to reaching my goals.
Today is a new day. I will do the things that feed my soul. I will not wait for the perfect time to start something new. I will take advantage of every moment of today.
Today I need to remember big improvements won’t happen overnight. I just need to be patient. Working on consistency is more important than speed. Today I will trust the process and get stronger every day.
Today I will not feel guilty or selfish for taking time to better myself. Today and always I will love my girl and continue to be the best mom I know how to be.
Today I am proud of setting a date for completing 32 miles. I will focus on the everyday accomplishments instead of letting fear cloud my mind. Today, I will remember the breathtaking views and let that motivate me to continue training.
Today I will go to treatment and rest. Tomorrow get up and continue to train. To get my mileage in for the week I will have to run in bad weather, the dark, and when I don’t want to. This week I will be consistent and focus on the positives so I can be successful.
Today I will follow where this journey will lead. I will challenge myself to share my story through art, no matter the form. I will continue to share honest feelings, raw moments, and beauty of my journey to 32 miles.
Today I will be proud of getting one step closer to my goal. I will not let setbacks leave me feeling defeated. Today I will continue to work hard and make healthy decisions so I can be my best.
Today I will push on. I will continue receiving treatments to have the best chance of overpowering the cancer and living a long life. Today I will daydream about all the amazing things still planned for me.
