Practicing Mindfulness

When I was originally diagnosed with lymphoma, I knew that if I was going to overcome this adversity I had to do it with mindfulness. It was not the easiest practice and sometimes I felt like giving up, but to be present and in the moment aided me in the unnecessary stress of what I couldn’t control. A main part of why I share my story is so that I can share the small techniques that I believe made a world of a difference. I hope this video supports and encourages you to practice mindfulness through any adversity you face.

    I used a great mindfulness teacher in NY years ago and it was the best bang for my money. To move through life with these techniques when life gets crazy is so helpful in maintaining.

    Three things I’m thankful for today……..
    – surviving 2 bouts of lymphoma (I will not give the disease the honor of capitalizing it’s name.).
    – receiving unbelievably awesome medical care from all my providers here at St. Luke’s, Boise, ID.
    – having a spouse who is one of the most caring individuals I have ever known.

    I love this. Thank you for participating and sharing. Was it helpful for you to type those sentences out and truly relish in what you have to be grateful for?

    B”H HI! You really touched my heart. I think it is amazing you are so honest and open about so much. Though I started my life probably in a home like yours, I am today a Breslov chassida. I became a chassid many years before my cancer diagnosis. For myself, I have B”H respect for all the doctors and research, for all the technicians and even the equipment that was part of my treatment, and I am learning too how to find my own voice and my own path to healing – only for me its all part of the very infinite picture of G-d’s universe. A true sense of meaning and beauty and goodness . I thank you for listening to me!

    Wow! That’s beautiful.. and so kind of you to share this part of you. I really value that outlook of yours with religion and how you still appreciate and respect the technicians and doctors who aid in our healing- it’s a beautiful collaboration 🙂
