What happened? How did we get here? There's got to be more to life than this.
Those thoughts flashed my mind as I was keeping a watchful eye on Sean. I was very grateful for my life, but yet I felt so trapped and restless. Somehow, over the years, I started believing I had to take care of everything and keep everyone safe.
I would dream and wish for many "normal" things; such as, meeting a friend for coffee OR going to eat at a restaurant together as a family OR brushing my teeth without the fear of Sean having a seizure and injuring himself.
I had tried so many things to "fix the problem".
I kept troubleshooting, learning, researching, implementing and adapting – until one day I decided I wanted to tell and believe a different story. Was it easy? No, it was scary and uncomfortable. Was my husband enjoying the new story? No, he was scared and resistant. We had so much historical evidence that screamed, "It is not going to work!", but I kept believing and taking the steps and saying, “what if?”.
What if there are a thousand amazing possibilities available to us? And we just keep taking the scary steps. That was two years ago. Life is so excitingly different now! I want to encourage you to dream, to design a new story. We could be overtaken by the challenges, accept life as is, and just settle.
OR we could see what is possible, find support, try new things, and step out of our comfort zone. Magic happens outside of the comfort zone. Design your new story.
We cannot avoid unexpected issues or changes in our lives. But what we can control is how we choose to respond to them. It is the power of our choice that enables us to activate the opportunities, as well as the positive and fruitful changes in our life.
