Happy, Healthy You – Write Your Own Story
Once upon a time…the popular start to many children’s fairy tales. As innocent children, we usually fantasize of happy dreams for our future. But then life gets real. Once we are adults, the responsibilities and realities can be sobering. Oftentimes, our lives can turn out a lot differently than we had imagined. Am I right? It IS possible to write our own story in our lives. No matter what chapter of life you find yourself. Yes, our story can include some really challenging chapters. Past or present. The reality, and beauty, of life is there will be ups and downs. The downs, or life experiences, can lead to valuable wisdom. With our newfound insight, we can adjust and readjust the direction of our lives. If life takes us down a road we never imagined, it doesn’t necessarily mean it is a bad thing. Challenging, yes. The good news is, once we get through the tough times, we can look back on the road we have just traveled and see personal growth. And most times, once we are on smoother ground, we can look back and see unexpected blessings.
You might be thinking…I have aspects of my life I can’t control. You are right. Most of us are dealing with hard situations in which we have no control. Acceptance of them will help us to make peace with our circumstances. This step will open our hearts to love and compassion. It could be compassion for others or ourselves. We are doing the best we can. If we look for the silver linings, we can be content with our story. Acceptance, gratitude and compassion will free us to pursue other dreams or paths. Maybe it will be carving out time for much needed self care and developing healthier habits. Or pursuing a hobby you have always been passionate about. You will notice a new freedom to live your life intentionally and on purpose. It is possible to write, create and embrace new chapters in the story of our lives. This will most definitely lead to a happier, healthier you.
