Over the years, I have found when starting something new three main experiences happen:
1. It can be fun
2. Possibly exciting or
3. Fear of the unknown. (Where most of us hang out)
To step into the unknown takes courage, a commitment and a promise you make, to yourself. Making this commitment is for YOU and only you. One challenge for me was to see that I matter in the world. This was and is a huge wall to climb but worth all the blood, sweat and tears.
From my experience, I have found that the promises that I’ve made to myself were the toughest ones to keep, yet the most beneficial. When making a commitment to your own healing, know that you are beginning the process of transforming your challenges into precious gifts.
What we sacrifice is the pain, comfort and old habits.
I would like to share a story of what happened the other night.
I was on facebook instant messaging a woman who was diagnosed with MS. She shared she was in denial and taking care of her husband which took her away from taking care of herself. Her husband was in a motorcycle accident and is now a parapalegic. She gained weight and was totally depressed. I felt horrible and just wanted to help her.
She felt she was cursed since she had two deaths before this. She was afraid, stuck and shared her pain. All I could was offer to help her. “Come on the call,” I said. “Put your question in or just share your situation and let me coach you.” She was not able to saying it is harder to really take that step. I get it and felt helpless not being able to get her to do it.
After 10 min of going back and forth I said “It’s up to you. I want to help but you have to want it too.” I shared my commitment to helping those in such pain. She shared, I am scared and then said she would think about it.
I shared, there is nothing to loose and it may help you find some peace in the process to speak with someone. When we ignore a hand that is offered to help we miss a chance to heal. We miss the opportunity to get better.We miss a way to get back to who we really are.
This story about ‘suffering’ may be familiar to you. As I have learned with my own ‘stuff’ that without making a change it just gets more painful. I feel that YOU must step up take a risk to see if you are worth it. I know this is touchy.
Take a moment to revisit your commitment to take care of the gift of your life. If this seems impossible, know I am here to help.
Remember you are never alone as the power of grace is with all of us.
Join me on my next call.
