People will often ask how I’m able to keep going after such difficulties losing my father and than my partner within 10 months of each other. Well here is the secret…
I just keep trying.
Yup that’s it. I keep trying. That is the magical answer I have for you. Some days are fantastic and other days I can feel frightened but each new day I try.
The thing I’ve learned is that every day is another chance to find purpose. One day’s purpose might be to take care of sea lions and penguins, the next might be educating people about oils followed by a day to spend with my dog, a day to motivate people, a day to do a news interview, a day to make a Tiktok, a day to grieve or a day that includes any, all or none of those things.
What I’ve found is that trying in itself is purpose. When there isn’t something I can tangibly show myself I’ve accomplished (because we all feel like we have to have visible substance to prove our work – right?), I can remind myself that the day was a success because I try.
The other thing I’ve learned is that my past difficulties has help to shape my future and directed me down roads I never would have ventured without a cosmic nudge. Hindsight can be a blessing depending on what lens YOU choose to look at it through.
So when you are faced with difficulties or the memories of difficulties past than remind yourself to see the gifts that have resulted and know that our difficulties right now become our future gifts…
