I had plans.... glorious plans...
Then I experienced the cosmic 2x4. That's my term for a course correction in life.
For me, it was a freaky fall, landing on my elbow, bruising a few ribs has set my plans on hold for now.
To be truthful, I've had some 'why me?' moments where I question the higher purpose. I've questioned what I could have done differently. Yet, the answer I get is "shit happens" and sometimes we don't know the higher purpose.
So, here I am...typing one-handed, trying to find a comfortable position; yet I remain eternally optimistic for my own healing journey. This time has forced me to be even more introspective than usual.
This is what I affectionately refer to as the void. (cue the music).
Here are some things I've learned while being in the Void:
~ You can't control everything; but you can control how you respond
~ It's OK to ask for help
~ You get to re-assess what's truly important
~ There's always a way forward
~ Things are always working out
~ Self love and Self care are TOP priority
~ A good sense of humor will take you far
~ Taking deep belly breaths feels wonderful
~ Focus on the Healthy body parts
~ Music Music Music
~ The Void is a chance to re-set and replenish (don't fight it)
~ Learn to appreciate everything and everyone
~ Count Your Blessings...even when it's tough
When you come out on the other side (and you will); you'll be wiser and stronger.
So much LOVE! ~cathie
