I knew I needed to keep moving forward…somehow keep breathing even though pain roared through me. I knew I needed to do a lot to help my family but all I wanted to do was rewind my life to sweeter days. Have you ever felt like that? Have you ever felt devastated…like you wanted to go back in time and fix everything? If so, remember that feeling…remember that feeling in your stomach…the gasping for breath…that screaming within you? Remember feeling you were broken and not knowing how to pick up the pieces? Remember seeing the imperfection of your life staring back at you?
Wow! Just reading that is depressing! But honestly I think it’s hard to get through life unscathed and not feeling like something inside us is broken or imperfect. I think it’s because life is challenging. But I also think it’s meant to be… because I believe we are all here to learn powerful lessons, albeit some harder than others. And it’s those of us that don’t embrace our lessons that are forced to continue to face the same challenges over and over again in our lives. And let me tell you…that is for the birds!
What I’ve come to learn is that our circumstances and experiences in life can leave us feeling broken but the power within us is never broken unless we personally allow it to be. When you really think about it… we are pretty bad ass! The fact that we have that much internal power is not to be taken lightly.
That’s why I’m so excited about our Conversational Change weekly video series. The enclosed video only scratches the surface and is a broad stroke look at the year’s topics. But we’re going to dive deeper every week with the introduction of strategies, personal stories and tools you can use…not because you need to but because you want to have the most amazing life you can! And I’m here to tell you…you deserve to (we’ll talk more about that in the weeks to come as well!)
We look forward to seeing you weekly on our #hersmile Facebook page Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m.
P.S. If you tried tuning in last night at 7:00 p.m., we apologize for the technical difficulties we were having! We’re learning on the job over here so we thank you for your patience.
