I just love this quote so much. It’s cute. It’s real and makes sense from a little kid to a grown adult. Everyone can relate to a cupcake! And everyone can relate to believing in something.
There is real power in the concept of believing in something.
I was inspired to use this quote after watching some foodie documentaries. I watched unhealthy people who had cancer and other debilitating diseases decide to make some changes in their lives with what they ate.
They stopped eating processed foods, drinking soda, and shifted their food intake to contain more veggies. Then the magic happens. Their bloodwork becomes normal. They feel great. They can stop taking a handful of pills each day. It’s a miracle!
But really it’s not a miracle. All these people started to believe that they weren’t a victim of their diseases. They tried something different to take control of their health and ultimately their lives. It made a difference and you can do it too!
I’ve had my own share of miracles related to my health. One was back in 2009, I suddenly gained 50lbs in 3 months. It was odd as I was a personal trainer at the time and my diet did not change.
Over the next 3 years, I bounced around the medical community trying to find answers to my symptoms. I felt fatigued, depressed, and inflamed. Eventually, I was diagnosed with a gluten allergy and hypothyroidism, but it took a lot of self-advocating to get there.
Once I was able to change the way I ate and was on medication to get my thyroid under control I felt like a different person, all from first believing that something was wrong.
My 2nd (3rd and 4th) miracles are my children. You can read more about my twin pregnancy here after 37 fertility cycles. I also conceived my daughter through treatments as well. When all seemed lost, I believed I was meant to be a mom and then these miracles happened. With my twins, the cycle I got pregnant with them was the last cycle I was going to do due to the emotional, physical, and financial hardships of treatment…talk about a last-minute miracle!
Believing in Yourself:
