Initiate the Change
There’s accommodating and then there’s adapting to the world we live in. We all have to accommodate people around us and they do the same for us. It’s a give-and-take world we live in. But adapting to negativity within us or in our environment means deciding we can live with something negative rather than take action to initiate a positive change. Each time we adapt to something negative within us or around us, we pay a price Carolyn Myss
I always remember a story from a lovely lady I met on the journey. She was very ill at the time, her attitude was always positive. I always thought, every time we spoke, that I would have loved to have spent more time with her as our talks were usually quite insightful. I knew it would be a matter of time before she transitioned. One day I worked up the courage to ask her about her condition, she said that she had some pain and discomfort but never went to the doctor to check it out, she just learned to live with pain!
She learned to live with the pain!
We do not ever have to learn to live with pain especially when we can do something about it.
Living with pain is a choice!
We must find the courage to make another choice
We must believe that we deserve more
We must pay attention to the pain as it is giving us a message, a lesson, a sign, we don't have to live there, we don't have to live with the pain
We must know that, then act like we know
