CAN - Create Another Narrative affirmation cards

Affirmation cards to support woman facing health challenges. Mindset is essential for our wellness, especially when we are run down. These cards acts as a quick mental pick you up in times of need or simply when you want a burst of inspiration. I would like to get affirmation cards printed. CAN cards - Create Another Narrative. To support those who feel isolated at times of poor health. For those who are told 'it's all in your head' and struggle to access care - often women, dismissed with 'womens things.' A hug in a box, that says 'you got this' and 'someone understands.' You are not alone , I have been that woman. The power of affirmation has meant that I am more able to believe in myself, which has enabled me to access the care I require - this changes EVERYTHING and I want to support others on their difficult journeys, as sadly there are lots of women who face their own struggles. There will be 30 credit card sized cards in a box. 25 will include powerful affirmations and 5 will be blank for the individual to write their own affirmations, with some simple pointers on how to do this - because each unique experience matters. The affirmation cards can be stuck up around the house, kept in a pocket or on a bedside table to remind people to believe in themselves, to change people's mindset and to give them the confidence to change their own narrative from 'it's all in your head,' to 'you know your own body' - you CAN do this. By using affirmation, I have found the confidence against all other voices to speak for myself and access the care I require - this impact is significant. Here are some of the affirmations. These are specifically related to thyroid health but I will be using 25 of these that are generic to 'women's health.' Affirmations that will support those with illness that is often dismissed and misunderstood, from endometriosis to thyroid health - the challenges are often the same, a lack of understanding and knowledge, which is often used to label women 'hysterical.' The problem is not ours. https://lifelovesandlearning.blog/2019/06/24/thyroid-affirmations/ I would like to raise funds to cover initial printing costs. I will then sell the cards for a fee to cover future printing. If I have the opportunity I would like to make a donation to charity.   I absolutely do not want to make any money from the sale of these cards. When you're alone and desperate you will do anything to be well - this is easy to exploit. I have spent a lot of money on 'help' and unfortunately not all of it does. I want to support others. I want to give them what I felt I needed, no strings. CAN cards will also, hopefully help to raise awareness and bring a community of women together- power in numbers! At the same time (with funding) and if the cards are a success, I hope to make a contribution to charity. I often found my friends didn't know what to do for me. The CAN cards would have been a relief of a gift, an offer of support, a sign someone 'gets it.' I know it seems a small thing but when you feel alone small things make a GIANT difference. With CAN affirmation, it's all in your head - Create Another Narrative with me. The Back Story...
