In the midst of my cancer battle, I learned a valuable lesson on shielding myself from the outside negative chaos and noise that surrounded me. Getting information about the statistics of surviving my type of cancer, was not always positive or encouraging. Actually, it was quite the opposite, I was often horrified, sadden and scared thinking I would not make it through my cancer battle and my life would be cut short. This information being presented to me was not something I wanted to know about. It quickly became too much for me to handle. I was allowing outside factors affect my emotions in a negative way. However somewhere deep in my soul I knew that God was always with me and that I needed to stay positive in order to survive cancer. I could not allow anything or anyone to negatively impact or trigger my emotions. The mind is a very powerful thing and if you allow fear and panic to creep in,it often does affect your survival outcome. It’s like when you are learning how to swim for the first time. Your body has the natural ability to float in water but if you panic and get scared you can quickly sink and drown.

I realized that several essential and critical tools to be able to fight against cancer or any other difficult situation in life and be successful were to always have faith and trust in God, to remain stay calm and to have a positive outlook.
