Positive thinking could be the best medicine

When faced with tragedy or illness how do you deal? A local man diagnosed with stage 3 esophagi cancer faced his illness head on. 

At the age of 63 a Princeton man was told he had a tumor in his lower esophagus. From day one his courage and strength amazed his family and friends. Immediately most of his family members predicted the worst. Not him however. He has stayed positive and kept his faith not only in his religion, but in his health care provider's. He has refused to believe anything less than survival.

After numerous radiation treatments and chemotherapy his tumor has shrunk. Although he still faces a resection surgery to remove 30% of his stomach and the lower section of his esophagus his prognosis is looking better.

Positive thinking has so many advantages. Not only can you face another challenging day, you may be able to help others do the same. The next time you are facing hard times and troubles try to follow these tips to stay calm and stay positive.

  • Have faith in yourself that you will conquer what lays ahead
  • When you start to feel defeated get busy, don't sit around and dwell
  • Step back and take a look at the bigger picture, it may not be that bad
  • Just remember, it could be worse

Life throws us curve balls everyday. Illness, death of a loved one, finances and family. The list never ends. Positive thinking is the best medicine and it's free.
