On this lonnnnggg journey of recovery that I’ve been on, I’ve learned to step aside and let healing flow. Sometimes, I stand in my own way, and expect things to happen instantly. I realize that we all do this in our daily lives, so I will share with you how I’ve learned to get out of my own way.
Should doesn’t exist. When you say you should do this or that, it takes away from what you’re doing right. And you’re doing things the best you can. Shut the should up and try to remove it from your daily language.
Do or do not, there is no try. Yoda says it best. You don’t try to do anything, you either do it or you don’t. It’s very black and white.
Stop the negative self talk. I’m fully aware that this is easier said than done. It takes a full shift in perspective. This shift happens when we’re able to appreciate our bodies and brains for the amazing things they do daily.
Expectation is not reality there is a fine line between hope and expectation. You have to find the sweet spot and let your mind acclimate. I find it very hard to hope for something but not expect it.
Be kind to yourself. If you learn to be kind to yourselves, then healing, compassion and joy flow. I talk to myself in a kind way. When something doesn’t heal as fast as I think it should, I tell it it’s okay, I still love you.
This may sound crazy, but I can only imagine what the world would be like if everyone stopped blaming others and got out of their own way.
