Being grateful even for being sick


After such an incredible weekend and being able to to finally do what I had put on my vision board so many years ago, going to Tony Robbins walk on fire seminar and then actually  walking on fire, it was life changing.


Being there for 15 hours a day, yelling, screaming, jumping, hardly any food as you were so caught up in the moment, in this freezing cold room where you beared your soul to strangers for 4 days really ran me down.


I had been on this roller-coaster of go, go, go for the last month, working 12 hour days, 6 days a week, then I went on a cruise which I stayed up late every night and partied. I was off my schedule of eating right and exercising every day and getting to sleep 8 hours a night.


Going from that right into this seminar knocked me for a loop, I came home sick, so sick that I couldn’t get out of bed for 5 days, that’s how bad it was.


Some people would think you took 3 steps forward and 5 steps back, or that you were such a high and now you crashed.


It’s all how you look at things, some people would look at this week in bed and think wow, look I can’t even stay well enough to put into effect what I’ve learned, or be worried about paying the bills (I am a single mom with no other income)


They would go back to the why me mentality, poor me,  this always happens to me.They would stress about things they could not change. They would make it about something that it wasn’t.


But I took this time to reflect on what I learned, to be grateful that it was only a flu and not a life changing illness. I was grateful for the many other things I have in my life and that how lucky I was to have been blessed with this incredible gift.


I envisioned every day what my life will look like, even more so than usual as I had so much time in bed. I prayed for alot of people, I got to write and watch TV something I never do.


Did it suck? Of course it did, I hate to be sick, I am always up moving and doing, I got bills hello, I am like you, but instead of looking at the negative I chose to focus on the positive.


Maybe I needed to recharge, maybe I opened  up so much and took in so much of others energy in, maybe I needed to take better care of myself and not go into I am out of gas.


I am not a victim in my life, things will happen to you that will suck but that doesn’t mean it will be forever or that it always happens to you, let go of that mentality.


So yes, my friends even when bad things are happening to you, even when you get knocked down yet again, even when it feels like your taking 2 steps forward to take 4 steps back, be grateful for all you already have and know….the sun will come out tomorrow….bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow there be sun…The sun will come out tomorrow. ……let’s all sing together!
