Challenges come, and they can be met with resistance or acceptance. The thing about acceptance is that it affords you the energy to find the lesson and move on. I've been facing some challenges and have been vacillating between resistance and acceptance.
My nature is to go in and tackle the problem, but the reality is that there is no problem... There is only information that I can choose to use as guidance, or not... In the resistance all I do is feel poorly because I've relinquished my power, so what's the point in that? I can't necessarily keep myself from running through thoughts that are habituated, but I can be mindful and choose to continuously realign myself to more productive choices. Over time, that becomes the new normal. I've good pretty good at this overall, but admittedly have struggle a bit over the last 3+ weeks of being cut off from walking and swimming.
It's like @kickaskey said to me the other day... 'It's like if you finally get your driver's license, and a few weeks later it's taken away from you. What used to be the norm is now 'catastrophic'. '. Luckily, in the big picture, I didn't lose access to my mobility... My body is just in the shop, getting rehabbed for the wonderful adventures ahead. In the meantime, I'm doing the work to also keep my head in the game and mindfully transmuting frustrations into lessons. At this point I'm generally at peace, and even downright joyous... Because I know I'm still in the process of rising. 😊🦵💪 #UnipodRising #JustTheBeginning #MyLife #Rehab #Physio #Soon #WalkingOnSunshine #Persevere #Lessons #PositiveMind #PositiveLife #Empowerment #Mindfulness #Amputee #Prosthetics #Fitness
