Many years ago, had you told me the healing process was fun, I probably would have laughed in your face. Fun would not have been my first choice of explanation. Lately, I’ve been having quite a strange experience…I’ve been having fun. Go figure! When healing began, I was in such a dark place inside of myself. My days were full of fear, self-loathing and negativity. I struggled to get through the day with any type of enjoyment. I would dedicate myself to work which was one of the only things that gave me worth. Perhaps your “one thing” is something else like your children, your partner or a project. It’s easy to see how we become co-dependent on others when we’ve got no love or worth inside for ourselves. I’m a living example that quality of life can evolve. I’m noticing more and more my ability to be creative and express myself. Perfectionism has dropped to the wayside as I have shifted focus on enjoying the ride. I enjoy learning new skills. I enjoy challenging and stretching myself beyond perceived limits. I enjoy gaining knowledge on topics I never knew about before. What’s changed? I’m allowing myself to enjoy versus using everything to shame myself. I’m self-serving not defeating these days and it’s so, you guessed it, enjoyable. Just for today, allow yourself to receive joy, blessings and positivity. Life really can be fun when we move from victim thinking to an ownership perspective. Acknowledge where you are today, not at a judgement but as an honoring of the truth. Do you keep yourself in victim consciousness or are you actively moving into owning your life? It’s something to explore. For now, I would love your feedback about how your process is evolving since you began.
