WOW! what a powerful sentence that is! do you feel it? When you read this what did you think about?
Did you remember a point in your life where you couldn't turn back? a point where you had no choice but to go forward? What is that moment for you?
For me...it involves my pain. Where I was when I was first injured is not where I am now...I can't go back. Where I was the first few years of my injury is not where I am now and I can't go back there either. Neither place exists anymore.
The ME I am now is a whole new ME.
We can't go back there...it doesn't exist anymore....we can only go forward. Fear is a normal part of life but when it stops us from growth...are we really living or are we fearing? It takes a lot of effort to move forward from the fear and to begin again...but once you do...there can never be peace. We can't turn back once we start...we either die or succeed living the struggle.
When I give thought to all the work it took to get me to where I am now...I can't imagine going back! I don't want to! But there are days still when I wish the fight wasn't so hard and at times too I'm tempted to just let it go...BUT...I can't. I'm not the same person I was a year ago and you know what? neither are you. We can't go back but we can move forward...gently.
Embrace where you are now...and live your life for you.
take good care of you okay?
