Hopelessness is a paralyzingly dis-ease. I have felt it in the core of my being, the deep down dusty place that seems hard to reach. Hopeless that circumstances will change. Hopeless knowing death brings physical disconnection. Hopeless knowing that I may no longer be the same.
But, I stand and lie down today knowing that this did-ease called hopelessness can be overcome. Our circumstance we absolutely cannot control, even though I thought I could, BUT we can control our conclusions about these circumstances.
One wintery day, only two months after my mom died, I make a conclusion that only great goodness would come from the gift of grief I received from her death. I decided that I would live in a negativity fast and a positivity feast, as Steve and Wendy Backlund describe it. Guess what happened? The last three years have been a walk in greatness. I have found my passion that melds my teaching brain, coaching mindset and mother’s heart. I have found my meaning and my passion for how I can be a permission for hope no matter your circumstances. Through great nutrition, an ever growing mindset and being able to learn new truths about myself every day through the circumstances around me, I have found hope and freedom!
Hope replacing dis-ease.
Hope in any circumstances.
