I have often given the advice , visualize what you want your life to look like, draw a picture even. This is where I often forget to take my own advice!!!
We truly do have the power to create our world! It’s an amazing process of attracting what we truly want. Thinking of all the good that comes from the bad, or rough times, I call them speed bumps.
Why?? Because we get going, moving so fast through this life, the universe needs a way to slow us down. To make us take a moment to truly absorb the lessons we are to learn. Then we can refocus on what is truly important. How are life could be if we know what we want. And what it is that we truly want.
Now, this is so much more difficult when you are not healing!!! I know from experience and coaching others. Am I fully healed, No!! I am not, and that’s ok. I am doing the work that needs to be done even though I am still accepting that I have quite a few triggers! And wow have I been aware of them lately.
My youngest child needs a sleep study, which I have avoided for 8 years!!! I knew she would need one again, but I absolutely hated that process when they did her baseline study. She cried for 5 hours! All I wanted to do was take her away from that room and protect her. It made me so angry because I felt so helpless, not being able to soothe her. No one should be forced to endure something that makes them that uncomfortable. Huge trigger for this mom!!! I had to admit that to her doctors. I had to open up and tell them why I was so agitated!! It sucked and it made me vulnerable.
Anyone who has been through any type of abuse will know being vulnerable is not what you want to be in any situation. But sometimes you just have to take that leap of faith and be vulnerable to get to where you need to be!! No one else knows your triggers and you may have to own them to move forward from your trauma.
We have to own our story in order to embrace this amazing life and all it has to offer. Once you can accept yourself as you are, you can create the life you desire. Have fun trying to draw small things to go your way.
Create your life!! One chapter in your story does not have to define the rest!! Don’t let it, get out of your own way and let the good stuff in now.
Love and Light
