Courageous Lives of Children and How They Beat Cancer

Have you ever heard that that the courageous lives of children are grounded in the principles of biology?

This is about super human powers, although you could say we have the ability to do whatever we want if we really put our mind to it.

A friend of mine was sharing on Facebook the other day that long time friends of his family have a 4 year old little girl that had been battling cancer for most of her short, young life.

Needless to say, they just celebrated her conquering cancer and had a huge party for the going away of that disease!

The thing is, although she was ill for so long, she doesn't see it that way. Her mind doesn't have that negative aspect of it that we tend to grasp and hang onto as adults. We have a tendency in our humanness to take information in, and then we wear it like it's the holy grail.

In this case, she didn't have the capacity to say, "if I get better", or "if I live to tell about it". When we get to be adults, we stop thinking positively and let life take over. There isn't any reason to live this way! Do you agree? Observing children tells us a lot about ourselves, in how we think and act. The mind is so powerful.

The courageous lives of children are evidence that we don't have to resort to that way of living. Children overcome illnesses rather quickly. If you have a toddler in your home, you know this all too well. They tire down when ill, but when they get up, they are still full of energy!

Children don't have the mindset that anything can stop them. You already know that they never give up! They will persist and persist until they get what they want. It's amazing! Children are the perfect example of going at it again and again until they wear themselves out!

It's a beautiful thing! When in doubt, always remember that there is something to be said by reading about and sharing more about the courageous lives of children!
