What is your why? —————————————————
Have you ever been asked this question? Its the driving force that will keep your determination burning when you are weak. I am often asked (mostly by naysayers), “why do you share so much?” —————————————————
My why has been hard for me to express lately.
Previously, I would describe my Dads story and how my why was to give him hope and provide an example for my children. With him gone, it’s been a difficult concept for me to visit. 🌿
When my dad passed, he was doing the best I’ve seen him in years. He had a positive outlook about his ability, was loosing weight and was going to cardiac rehab. Each week, he would give me an update and would witness the positive food choices and decisions he was doing for his quality of life....so it was just hard to see the progress and all of a sudden he was gone. One night, while expressing this to my husband, he replied: “He was able to do all of that because of you...your constant encouragement and example”.
My approach was always so kind and loving with him.....with him I could be a unique kind of patient. I began to recall all of our conversations about small things he could do each day, his critical inquiries about my home workouts turning into curious questions about what he could do and the immense pride he would beam sharing a positive Doctor report. 🌿
With my husbands words, a teary realization surfaced. Thats my Why. I am going to show up no matter what, for me, for my husband, for my children.....But- if through you rolling your eyes, you find a tiny bit of inspiration- then I will continue to share the raw journey. If I can live in a way to glorify God and inspire others to better their quality of life no matter the outlook, then I will share pushing play every day. #findyourwhy #overcominggrief -
