Some have wondered how I have managed to stay so positive during my dance with thyroid cancer. My answer is that I don’t really believe in positive thinking, you know what I mean….repeating a mantra that everything will be alright! That doesn’t really work for me! Rather I believe in being realistically optimistic that if I look to control the only thing on this planet that I do have direct and immediate control over, that is myself, that the best possible results will come my way.
So that is what I have done, and I have to say it works remarkably well. I can honestly say, and those who know me will attest to this, that I have not had any dark moments or feelings of fear..(well ok, maybe a couple of small butterflies as they wheeled me into theatre!) I commend the learning of choice theory to any of you who wish to change your lives for the better, no matter what difficulties you might be facing, you can do no harm and most likely will do yourself and those around you a power of good!
