Speaking Words of Hope

Some call it Affirmation... or a Declaration... Spoken Truth... a Mantra...

Jen Hatmaker calls it a Cancer Manifesto.

Words that encourage, calm, give purpose, and help keep us centered in the midst of turmoil.

Tamera Anderson-Hanna calls a mantra our personal mission statement.  She shares how mantras can help us gain focus on goals, set an intention for a period of time, and also be personally empowering.

The dictionary defined mantra as a motivation chant, like the "I think I can, I think I can" you repeat over and over to yourself on the last stretch of every marathon you run. 

And cancer is the most difficult marathon any of us could ever run. Truth?

Maybe we need a mantra.

A little Encouragement... and a whole lot of Hope!

Mom found her mantra early on in the cancer journey.  This poem was a sort of touchstone and helped keep her focus when treatment became grueling....

Cancer is so limited.

It cannot cripple love,
It cannot shatter hope,
It cannot corrode faith,
It cannot destroy peace,
It cannot kill friendship,
It cannot suppress memories,
It cannot silence courage,
It cannot invade the soul,
It cannot steal eternal life,

It cannot conquer the Spirit.
