What about embracing the good in our lives?
We often tend to focus on all that’s bad or all that we’ve been handed and why this is happening to us right now. But what good does it do to focus on the negative when that will only make your situation worse. There is proven science behind remaining positive in extreme situations. Especially when it comes to our health. If you are unfortunately faced with a life-threatening disease like cancer and you mentally succumb to the disease your body will follow suit. But if you remain positive, even if the you’re on your death bed, your chance of survival will drastically increase. I’ve seen it happen!
Some days during this Lyme treatment have been extremely tough. Some days have been so bad that I’ve wanted to give up and I’d find myself asking, “Why the hell is this my life?” or “How can I go on every day like this?” It would all just feel so heavy. If I allow myself to get sucked into that mental vortex that feeling will only get worse. The stress will increase and then guess what, my physical health will suffer the consequences. So how to I avoid that? I think a lot of that has to do with acceptance.
Acceptance is a major component to healing. When we accept what is happening to us, we can then face the challenge straight on.
We can gather ourselves, try to clear our minds, and find guidance to the best options for our better health. Accepting what is happening to you might not come easy, but you can find support through the healing power of music, art, keeping a close support system, and you could even get a pet. Yes, you might be facing physical challenges, but if you can make it work, a pet will bring so much life and healing energy into your home you will be thankful for your family’s addition.
We can even embrace the bad and turn it into good.
It’s pretty much reverse psychology on yourself. If you embrace the negative in a positive light, you will learn that this is “your life” because you are strong enough to handle it. You were handed this because you are stronger than you know. Is that ringing is super loud in your ears? Why not turn it into a song? Okay, that might be a long shot, but honestly, attempting to create positive from the negative can and will have wonderful effects.
But the point here is the Embrace the Good. Embrace what we do have and what’s great in our lives. This should be all things, big to little! The fact that you have a roof over your head, you are able to get up in the morning, you face physical and mental challenges daily, all while remaining bright and strong. Embrace the people we have around us, near and far. There are people there that care for us, let them in. Allow those people to help guide your healing and bring you more natural good. If you need to reach out to someone for help, don’t hesitate, pick up the phone and call them!
You are worth it!
