How to deal with redirection when things go wrong! How many people play the victim. Life’s unfair, I can’t believe this happened to me?! Poor me and so on. I can promise no successful person stayed in this thought process long. What they did was adapt. Success is built on going with the flow!
Its been awhile since I devoted my time to writing! I’ve been on the go, until yesterday morning when life suddenly halted me! That halt was in the form of a knee injury! My first official knee injury, what a sweet little surprise, just kidding!
One way to appreciate something is to lose the ability to use that very thing! Loss of anything in the form of a person, home, job etc really makes you see something from a whole new light and a whole new apperception.
Think about how many times you devalue something? Let’s take your job for example ! Imagine your boss lets you go and you couldn’t pay your bills, I bet you would see the value and suddenly see the massive gem that job is.
Ask me how I feel about my knee today? I can’t wait for this tendon to heal. Am I sad? Yeah at first but at the same time its only two weeks of resting and it seems silly to bitch about when some people can’t walk at all. See what I did?!
In life shit happens and being victim will only derail you or me! Thankfully I’m not one to complain, if I don’t like something I change it or I change myself to adapt to it.
Today I am going to reroute my month and the following weeks! I am forced to rest, something I really don’t allow myself to do nor do I enjoy. But instead of throwing a pitty party I’ll take some online classes, learn some anti-inflammatory recipe, turmeric latte first on the list this morning and take some online classes.
I am accepting that this knee injury is a simple reminder to appreciate the blessings I have before I lose them! Stop complaining about petty things and move the eff on!
So much for my master plan of stocking my savings account with serious change this month! Looks like my pup is just going to have a resting partner and I’ll have to think of ways to make money from home! I am accepting my new forced stay vacation, mediation retreat and taking some new classes.
Thanks knee injury for rerouting me and making me learn to appreciate the small things before you break them lol. Thanks for teaching me an accident is not an invitation to be a victim it’s an invitation to reinvent yourself!
Now go break a leg, but not literally, figuratively of course!
