Gosh do I appreciate that you're managing a medical crisis at this time of year. Twelve months ago I was still creeping forward with the help of a cane. Today I can dance a jig. I remember very clearly what it is like to go from despair to joy many times over in my healing journey, and how that progress happened.
Here's a motivational thought. I suggest that you note it in your day-planner or journal, maybe even tape it to the refrigerator: "Your past will be your future if you pack it into your personal baggage."
What it means is that dwelling on the miserable parts of your past in conversations and in your private thoughts, or making your actions reflect that sadness just drag it smack into your future! Redesign your life. Launder the yukky stuff in your luggage ;^ )
Focus on what's working, the things that are going well. Create happy remarks you consciously share with others. Talk to yourself in an upbeat way. Everyone around you will notice the pleasant change. They'll feel invited to share happiness with you. Yours and theirs!
Do it. Dont't just "try" to leave your past behind you. Actually Leave it Behind You! Your future is opening before your face, your limbs and your mind. Let it into your life, one improvement at a time. Then you can replace your motivational thought with a newer one: I AM LIVING MY FUTURE AND INVITING PROGRESS, HAPPINESS, HEALING, SERENITY AND CALM INTO MY LIFE.
I'm the redhead in the lower left corner, hoping to see the improvements in your life. Drop me a line and let me know how things go!
