It was a journey brought about from a magnitudinal desire to want to live, not half live, but to really LIVE. The desire to want to love my life and everything about it. Now don't get me wrong, I had wanted this for a long time but for some unknown reason my brain just did not seem to compute this want into a need ... that was until now. Something just clicked, it was like all of sudden the opportunities and the people that I needed to meet for this journey were presented to me on the most magnificent of platters to lead me into my true potential, the person I am meant to be.
It was as easy as making a phone call, that was it. Now I say easy but in actual fact summoning the courage to pick up the phone and dial the number to put myself out there was, needless to say, HUGE. I was terrified I would be judged, laughed at or ridiculed by those around me for doing this. Fortunately though, none of that happened and as it turned out it was the best phone call I ever made.
I look back and wonder even now if the people involved truly understand how much I appreciate the part they have played in my journey..
NO MATTER HOW BIG OR SMALL
.. for they have all helped me to live again. To me that is priceless and I know for a fact that if you are reading this and you have been or are experiencing symptoms of illness (in any form!) for an extended period of time that you will understand exactly what I mean. Perhaps you are still at the beginning of your own journey and yet to feel that joy of healing, but imagine, close your eyes for a moment and just put yourself in a picture of good health, loving life, waking in the morning and looking forward to the day, every day, and the prospect of what it will have to offer.
I know when you are unwell, when every day is about 'counting spoons' and stretching your brain to work through the brain fog that it is almost scary to let yourself dream that dream, of being well, but TRUST, have FAITH that if you dare to dream you will undoubtedly find a way to make that dream come true. You just need to want it bad enough. In the meantime connect with people you resonate with, that are like minded and are prepared to go out on a limb, support what may seem like a crazy idea for the betterment of ones self.
BODY ... MIND .... SOUL
Embrace the journey, be brave like I was and experience what life truly can offer you when given the opportunity!
