Remembering to be grateful for what I do have and focusing on that. When I had my double mastectomy this year I was grateful for a loving and supportive family, a good job, health benefits and a skilled and caring plastic surgeon. I was grateful that I didn't need chemo. I don't play "Pollyanna" and yet the truth is that there is always something good that comes from even the most challenging situation - even if it is the realization that you had the strength to get through it.
