Start #journaling. It will improve your life, and it is easy to get started. People who journal express more gratitude, suffer from less stress, are more connected to their surroundings, and even live healthier lives. 

Start with one sentence of five minutes a day, try different methods, and find what works for you. Jx
Unlike IQ, grit isn’t fixed. It can be learned, developed, and taught. Building grit is about developing consistent hard work. Grit is both a contributor to and outcome of a growth mindset. Possessing high levels of grit helps individuals sustain a growth mindset, and a growth mindset can help build grit. Jx
Thankful Thursday
When you were diagnosed with a chronic condition such as cancer, you are shocked into a new level of awareness and reality. I was totally floored the first time this happened to me in 1991 at the tender age of 24.

The news can be very overwhelming, and create a sense of panic and fear. You may also realise, perhaps for the first time in your life, that you are not in control of your own reality. I was numb - it felt surreal. It was scary, and I felt so alone.

Initially, this gave rise to a sense of groundlessness and insecurity. 

I quickly learned that it’s really important to keep your wits about you and make a pact with the fearful brain, which is primed to be on the lookout for threats in a desperate attempt to keep you safe. That's just how the brain is wired.

When you are catapulted into a shocking new reality like a cancer diagnosis, everything changes. Your life changes. You change.  Naturally. How can your life ever be the same? There is no going back. There is only a new normal to be attained. A new possibility. 

This is when it’s really important to realise that the brain will send messages of panic and fear in a desperate attempt to try to control what’s happening and create a sense of 'safety' in your world.  I'm so grateful to understand how to work with my brain rather than against it through my masters studies in neuroscience.  I learned that this primal instinct and reaction by the brain is normal, natural and human, and it's what the brain is wired to do.  But I also learned that I am not my brain. I am so much more than my brain, and I am so much stronger than any thought sent to derail my fierce spirit to live.

I'm thankful to have learned to manage my fear and worry by making a pact with my brain to only deal with facts. This is how I managed my fear. 

I managed fear effectively by making a deal with my brain to only deal with the facts.  I learned that fears are not facts - they are narratives/thoughts which are rooted in a desperate attempt to feel safe and secure. 

And whatever those facts turned out to be, I decided that I would handle it. 

The body is capable of healing. I am living proof of this. 

I learned that the most important thing to manage on a healing journey is the mind and your thoughts. This is something you CAN do.You can't control your circumstances, but you can control how you respond to them. It takes work and it takes effort but you are worth it - if you want to. 

You see, you always have a choice about how you focus your attention and how you choose to respond or react to your circumstances.  

The biggest lesson I learned from my dances with cancer is this: it’s important to focus forward and 'fight for' what you want, not fight against what you don’t want. 

Where focus goes, energy flows. 

The choice is yours. Jx
Grit is the combination of perseverance and passion toward long-term goals. It’s a strong predictor of success, with positive relationships to achievement, motivation, hope, and life satisfaction. It is possible to learn and practice grit, especially by consistently working hard toward long-term goals. Jx
