This episode, we're moving on to our second core value: GRATITUDE.
Gratitude for us is to appreciate all results. We'll discuss how gratitude can impact even the smallest moments, to the biggest moments, both positive and negative, in our lives.
In this episode, they will start peeling off the layers on how we could live the life we truly want, while having the abundance we want, without sacrificing. It starts with giving ourselves permission to choose the experience we want to have.
A few months ago, you may remember, I went for a run. I really wanted to feel that exertion and sweat. It worked, I felt both. I ran a mile, then walked a bit and ran another mile. I thought, wow maybe I was ready for this sooner and I didn’t realize. I was walking a lot more. For me it did not feel like a hard run.
About 2 weeks ago, I suddenly felt like going for a run or jog. I really wanted to sweat and get my heart rate up. I felt ready and knew if my body wouldn't be able to take that yet, then I would just revert back to walking.
One of the things I missed the most after being paralyzed was playing my flutes.
Even after I gained movement back into my arms, hands and fingers, I still lacked the control of my lips to make a good enough seal on the flute to get enough air in through it.
It's been a year since Guillain-Barré Syndrome came into my life. What a journey it has been. I have had more personal growth in one year than ever. I would say at least 10-years worth of growth in one year.
I often talk about being in nature. I do this because for too many years of my life I hustled so hard. I missed the many beautiful things around me. Now, I love taking time to admire it, be with it, and notice how it makes me feel. At peace.
