After my diagnosis, I was faced with the harsh reality that I had spent the first half of my life merely existing. Since my diagnosis, I have decided letting to was my best chance to LIVE! And for me that means to:
Love myself and others
Inspire those around me
Voice my dreams and ambitions
I L.I.V.E every day and as a result I will leave behind a legacy that will hopefully allow others to journey along a path that is not so harsh, not as lonely and not nearly as painful. I know I went through what I did as a testimony to me and others. I have learned to trust God in a way that was merely words before but now I live out that trust in action every day. When I share my story, people are inspired and motivated to LIVE because they see a connection in my life and theirs and since God is no respecter of persons, if He did it for me, He can do it for them.
But before you can LIVE, you have to let go. 3 simple steps to letting go are:
- Take a step today. No matter how small. To break the patterns of your past.
- Refuse to live in fear.
- Put setbacks behind you. You’re not a failure just because you try something and it doesn’t work. You fail only when you stop trying.
“Trust that everything is unfolding the way it is supposed to. Don’t resist. Surrender to what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what will be. Great things are waiting for you around the corner.” –Sonia Ricotti
