My Cancer Story: Handmade Affirmations

Standard

Open Box

The biggest challenge I faced after my cancer surgery was letting myself recover. Sounds so silly! But as a project person, sometimes I fought the need to rest. (Other days, I thought it glorious. I loved having no greater mission than hours on the couch with a good book.)

So many people told me to rest, that I finally got it. And now that’s my best advice to anyone else in recovery mode. Be good to yourself! Be the best you can be.

My friend Jane’s affirmations helped me mightily. What a wonderful handmade gift! What creative medicine for some tough days!

Tucked back into their box for now, I’ll keep them forever and use them again (and again). Thank you, Jane!

A gift of handmade affirmations would work for plenty of other situations too: A new job, off to college, the difficult days following a divorce or the death of a loved one, MENOPAUSE, or just a pick-me-up for any old time.
