Did you or someone you care about ever have to wait for lab results for a potential health scare? I did last week, and that led me right into today’s life lesson #3…When you figure out what it is that you CAN control…just step on the gas…slowly at first is fine but just keep your foot on the pedal! Grab on to what you figured out you CAN control about the situation and start doing it! When I got result number #1 that my “cells changed” my mind kinda feaked for a couple of days with all of the “what ifs” in the most negative of directions…it sucked…and I was scared…then I pulled my thoughts together becasue I knew I was only going to make it worse. I had 3 weeks between test #1 and test #2 which was gong to be a biopsy. I asked myself, ok…what CAN I control RIGHT NOW?…Lots of stuff…my thoughts, what I ate, how I exercised, what I meditated on, visualizing a healthy body and remembering lots of stories I’ve heard about in the past of people who were in wany worse circumstnaces, already diagnosed with something and they turned it around with thoughts and prayer. I then spent the next 3 weeks kicking ass, practicing all the above, reasoning with myself that it is my job to make my body as stress free and healthy as possible, giving my cells the best possible environment for healing themselves. When I got my biopsy back, it turned out totally benign, and that the cells weren’t even in the category they previously saw…they were way healthier actually. I was like YES!! 🙂 Now I know I could have gotten different results, and that some people are living with the negative news of a result that they more than didn’t want. And I’ve seen the strength of some of those people and it’s rediculously inspiring…they can put your life in proper perspective in an instant…
My point is this…figure out what you can control under WHATEVER circumstances you are in, and allow yourself to feel the strength of that! Since being on my own, I have had to do this in every category in my life. For some things, I was able to change my level of happiness in an instant and it stuck. In other areas, it’s taken a few years for acceptance and my action to really kick in. I’m not saying it’s easy, just that it is possible. Then just take one step at a time…break down what you can control into small chunks…take your victories and let them build! Taking action will start making you feel empowered, and let you know you are wayyyy stronger than you may have thought! It will change your whole energy on the topic, situation or person! Maybe it’s something in your job, in your relationship, your finances or any other circumstances in yor life. What is it that you have to accept, and what is it that you can take control of? I invite you to decided and then act on it:) Maybe it’s just a new way you need to think about it, maybe it’s a specific action you can start taking….if you sit quiet with yourself, you’ll figure it out and you’ll know…..It’s soooo worth it. It can take the weight off of you and put you back into the driver’s seat! So I invite you to start with even just ONE area in your life and take note of what you cannot control, and take note of what you CAN control and start moving yourself forward….start making progress happen for yourself in an empowering way! We are still here. Life’s not over yet baby 😉 I’m sending you tons of love and STRENGTH!
In my next letter to you…..pain is temporary, no matter how bad you’re emotionally hurting right now….
We’re all in this together:)
With crazy love and gratitude!
