In life there are things you can not control, circumstances, experiences where you feel you have no say over what is happening. You may feel distressed, you may feel hurt, your may feel disappointed or disillusioned.
You always have a choice, even when it appears you don’t. You can choose to embrace what you are experiencing and grow through the experience it gives, this experience will evolve you.
When you feel unclear about what to do, when you feel unclear about what is taking place, when you feel unclear about what is happening or what has happened, it can be difficult not to feel afraid or uncertain, and it can be challenging.
Embracing what you are feeling, will help you allow this experience to evolve you. It may be helpful to remind yourself how adaptable you are, you have adapted in the past. It may be helpful to remind yourself how resilient you are, you have shown resilience in the past. It may be helpful to trust and believe you have what it takes to get through this.
When you experience something that reminds you of what you have previously experienced, it may be helpful to remember you have grown and evolved since then and you have the wisdom you gained through that experience, so you are all the wiser for it, and you can apply that wisdom to what you are experiencing now.
Sometimes it’s very helpful to step back and take a breath, take a moment to centre yourself, and identify what it is you are feeling. Take a moment to feel what is rising within you. Take a moment to understand what you are feeling, where you are in your life, and what you matter most to you at this point in time.
Embracing what is transpiring in your life, having faith that this is leading you somewhere, that in what is unfolding there is greater meaning. Finding greater meaning in what you are experiencing will help you feel less distressed, you give you a deeper understanding of who you really are, so you will be able to do what you need to do to take care of you.
Taking care of you, is trusting in your life and believing in you. Taking care of you is knowing that where you are, is exactly where you are meant to be, for the experience of being here. Taking care of you in challenging situations is the most important thing you can do for you, for you and for those you love.
You have an opportunity for greatness here, here in what you are experiencing, though it may be uncomfortable, unpredictable, and uncertain, it is something you have chosen to experience, otherwise you wouldn’t be experiencing it.
Think about what you can do, rather than what you can’t.
Think about what you have, rather than what you haven’t.
Think about what you are doing, rather than what others are doing.
Embrace all that you are feeling, believe in your life because it is your life, you are a living part of this experience, you are contributing to this experience, you matter.
Live your truth, honour what matters most to you, what you value most about your life, what you value most about you.
And be yourself, because if you aren’t yourself, who the hell are you?
I believe in you, you can too.
