Let the Truth Set You FREE!
One of the biggest life changing moments I’ve experience over the past 20 months, post injury, happened 2 months into my healing process. After 2 month of dealing with a lot of physical pain, anxiety heartache, I made the decision to shift my focus on the positives. Yes, I acknowledged I was in physical pain & not sleeping much because of it, I couldn’t change that, but I could change my attitude. I let go of reminiscing at what my lifestyle, yoga practice, & career goals were like before getting injured and trying to figure out how to continue that path, I let go of putting a timeline on when I thought I needed to be healed, & focused on the truth of what I could do now with what I got (both on and off the mat). I sat down & made a list of everything I could do in this present season. When I released my past abilities/path & future expectations, not only did I feel a heavy burden lift off my shoulders, but I got so excited about life again (even though I couldn’t move much ;) ).
Since then, by changing my mindset, I have actually “accomplished” more since I’ve been injured by thinking outside the box and stepping beyond the lines of the path I had created. My injury has given me an opportunity to step back & create a different life for myself. Yes, I would do anything to go back in time & to not have pushed so hard so I wouldn’t currently be dealing with daily pain & limitations, BUT, I can’t go back in time, I’ve let that go, I can only turn my physical mess into a message to help others not end up in the same physical state I’m in, & I am currently grateful for my recent choices & the amazing opportunities that have come my way during this season. .
I’m sharing this with you to encourage you that no matter if you’re dealing with an injury/illness, job loss, work challenges, relationship issues, a break up, your stuck in life, etc., have faith, make your list of what you can do NOW. Also make a list of what you would like to see happen if money wasn’t an issue and you had no limitations. I guarantee what you put your focus on will magnify & manifest! Dream BIG! Let your set backs become your Devine set-ups!
