“Confidence.” – is something you create within yourself by believing in who YOU are.
Living with Lymphedema or any condition for that matter can be a constant challenge, but there are many rewarding aspects that lie within us that we are devaluing without even realizing it. How do we channel the focus more so on the rewards than the defeats you ask? Self-Trust.
The soul usually knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind and the noise of the world so that you do not drown out your own inner voice. Self-Trust is that inner voice and it is the most important aspect for personal discovery and healing for any individual. Without Self-Trust your Self-Worth, Self-Esteem or Self-Confidence do not exist. You must believe that you were born with the integrity, strength and ability to conquer any challenge. Understanding that you will have set backs throughout your journey and that is okay because ultimately your illness or diagnosis does not define you. Your strength and courage does.
Never lose sight of trusting your greatness and continue pushing forward believing that you are worthy, capable and deserving of any goal you desire. Life is a journey and it can take you anywhere you choose to go. As long as you’re learning you’ll find all you’ll ever need to know. Allow yourself to see your obstacles as opportunities, tests as testimonies, and trials as triumphs and you will be victorious!
What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to what lies within us, and when you bring what is within out into the world, miracles happen.
-Henry David Thoreau
