The lowest moment in my life became the most powerful moment! We don’t know how strong we are and how high we can rise until we see how low we can go.
For some of us, it takes drastic things to occur…like a suicide attempt. For many of us, it doesn’t take anything nearly that drastic. But, for me…that’s what it took.
I allowed myself to live in an auto-pilot, unfulfilled, robotic lifestyle for FAR too many years. I allowed myself to be in an unhappy, unfulfilling marriage and relationship WAY TOO LONG. I say that I “allowed” myself because I am the one who’s in charge of my life…no one else. I am the one who was the enabler. I was the one that made a DECISION to stay…to keep trying. My ex did as well, but I am not responsible for his actions. I am only responsible for mine, and I am the one who decides about my life.
It took a very dark, drastic event to get me to finally wake the heck up! And I am SO glad I did! I have NEVER felt better, happier, more fulfilled in my life than I do at this very moment! And…each and every day keeps getting BETTER and BETTER!!!! I LOVE LIFE so much! I love how every day of my life is different than the day before! It’s interesting, it’s adventurous, it’s exciting, it’s wonderful!
Had I not gone through all of that darkness, I would have NEVER known how much LIGHT was waiting on the other side of it for me!
Everything I went through opened me up. I discovered that there is nothing “outside” of me when it comes to determining my happiness. It’s all an “inside job.” I discovered how EASY, FUN, and EXCITING life can be! I learned that I am limited by NOTHING, and I am capable of ANYTHING! By the way, so are YOU!!! I hope you know that! I am not special, and I’m no different than anybody else. I’m just more aware than most of how powerful we all are and that we are only limited by our limiting beliefs. I no longer have limiting beliefs, and if one shows up every now and then, I kick it to the curb!
Part of the reason I can live so joyously and happily every day is because I’ve learned how to see the GIFT in every single thing that shows up in my life. It is a SKILL I developed. I was not always this way, but I learned how to be this way. Once you learn that skill, you will be living your life in a whole new, richer way. It’s part of what I teach…how to find the gift in everything.
So, take a few minutes right now, and look at your life. Look back into your past. Look at the events that are happening now, and happened back then, that you might be holding on to some negative emotions about. Are those events STILL showing up in your life, perhaps masked as something else? Could it be that you are still keeping old pain and old memories alive in your current TODAY? If that’s the case, see if you can turn that memory into something POSITIVE. See if you can find the GIFT in it and realize that you are actually better off today BECAUSE of that event.
Let that “LOW” point ALLOW you to see how “HIGH” you can rise from it.
