Today I will prepare for tomorrows surgery. I will not allow others reactions to affect the view of myself or my peace. Today I will lean on my loved ones for the support and take each day one step at a time.
Today, I will look past the distractions and be intentional about my actions. I will not live everyday thinking about cancer. I instead will live each day grateful to be alive and focus on spending time with those I love. Grounding myself in the present is how I will continue to heal. Being present in today is where I will find happiness.
Today, I will choose happy and not let the world bring me down. I will replace the negative with positive thoughts, people, and experiences. Today, I will not let other’s opinions reflect how I see myself. I am proud of who I have become and all I have accomplished.
Today, I am asking questions about myself to find where I can improve and see the achievements I have made. I am grateful for coaches to push me to be my best self. Today, I am happy to find new ways to include my family in my training.
Today, I will look for happiness in the present. I will continue to train and work toward my goals. Today I will think about my purpose and what it means to fulfill it.
Today I will celebrate with the world by running 3 miles on Global Running Day. As I run I will think about how far I have come in the past year. Last May, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. This May, I have no evidence of disease, ran 231 miles so far this year, and signed up for a marathon.
Today I am going to enjoy running. I will be thankful to be outside and enjoy the sunshine. Today I will remember why I am running- to be my best self and encourage others to do the same.
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.
