I read this article from Powerful Daily Quotes and thought it was like what happened to me today. Today I met with some of the hospital staff members to discuss what changes could be made, to help other survivor's experience better... when they face cancer. I have to tell you that these two ladies were amazing and I was touched that they took the time to meet me and listen to my story and experiences. They were so excited to hear my suggestions and of course I in turn, was thrilled to share my suggestions. They also seemed to really like the gift ideas and logos that we are working on for survivors. As soon as I get the photos of these gifts and a place to share them with you ...I will.
Today, the ladies thanked me for sharing my experiences in a way that would bring about positive changes. That is why I liked this article. I do believe that this whole situation could have turned out bad, if all l did was complain and talk about how bad my experience was. I was upset of how everything happened and sure wished that things would have been different with me, but it was not so... hopefully, now I can take a bad thing and make it good. And also that other women won't have to go through the same painful experiences.
Thank you for all of your love and support, it means the world to me. I will some how come out hopefully a better and stronger, compassionate Lynn after all this. It has been a roller coaster ride, as I have mentioned but... I haven't gotten off yet. I am still hanging in there!
"Good Things Happen to People That Focus on Good Things"
I first became aware of this in my early twenties, when a lady I knew would always tell me she was coming down with some form of illness and after awhile, sure enough she came down with some illness. It was at that point in my life that I came to the conclusion that if a person was to focus on "Good Things Happening" then surly it would work the same way.
What I found out was that there was a commonality between all the folks that have had much good fortune. They focused on the good things in life and in spite of set backs and they continued to focus on the positive possibilities.
I believe that problems and solutions are inseparable. "You can't have a Rainbow without Rain"
I read a study about the commonality between first place winners in sports. After countless interviews with athletes that were first place winners, there was only one thing they all had in common other that being first. They All Began With The End In Mind. They all saw themselves crossing the finish line first.
At this time in our lives there can be no greater gift we can give to ourselves than to press forward and believe that good thing are coming.
