Hello!!I am following in Katie’s footsteps today at Plus+Beauty Blog to post about all things positive. I am heading on a 10 day vacation with all my friends so I really should be feeling great and I am. However, I am also feeling a bit anxious that when I get back I will be going back to work and my new position.
Name three things in your life that make you happy and positive.
Family and friends are automatic, I am very grateful for supportive friends and family. As much as my career can challenge me at times it is a positive in my life. I feel like I am doing what God wants me to when I am working with children. I feel like I make a difference. Music can take you on a journey of emotions. I love music and can’t sit still to a good beat. In fact, if no one wants to dance I will dance by myself. I love to sing and will sometimes spend an hour or more doing karaoke on youtube. I also love making a small space pretty it could be adding fresh flowers or an elegant towel. When I walk by the special touch it makes me smile.
What do you do to try and be more positive?
When I am not feeling positive I try to talk it out with someone. If I am not able to do that I look for inspiring quotes. Sometimes I have to remind myself how far I have come in my physical and emotional recovery as a cancer survivor. The quickest reality check into being more positive is to remind myself how much more challenging people lives are then mine. Then I am just so grateful for everything.
What do you do to relax?
For everyday relaxing I watch TV, hang out with friends, read, write my blog, go outside. If I am having anxiety I need to do activities that are distracting like cleaning the house and organizing closets and drawers or working on a specific project. These distractions help me relax.
What is your favourite positive quote?
There are so many good ones, it is hard to pick just one!
Everyone has a part of their body that they dislike, say something positive about yours.
This can be challenging at times because when I got cancer I felt like my body failed me and I didn’t trust it anymore. I am still working on that trust relationship. For physical appearance I like my eyes, legs, bust. I recently started seeing my larger bust as an asset.
Who are your positive role models?
Mother Teresa was selfless.
I have so much to be positive about grateful for!
