In the last few months, I have learned of a close friend being diagnosed with a severe case of cancer, an acquaintance almost losing an arm in an accident, and many of my clients sharing how something unforeseen suddenly and completely changed the course of their lives. I, personally, have even received shocking news that has been life changing.
What do all of these seemingly separate incidences have in common? They teach us that no matter how much we may plan ahead, in the blink of an eye, our lives can be completely altered.
Some things are simply out of our control. What is within our control, however, is how we deal with these changes. We may feel beaten and like giving up, or we can reflect on the positive potential in any situation. We can learn to extract from these experiences to enhance our lives, making them richer and more meaningful. This may seem a huge stretch initially, but once we go through the initial stages of shock, victim-hood and self-pity, there truly is a silver lining in each and every experience, no matter how drastic.
Believe me, I have been there. If you or a loved one is struggling coming to terms with some life changes, let them know there is support and there is guidance to help with a new approach. Simply contact me through Paradise Found and let’s begin the conversation of your life path. I am excited to help you find your very own silver lining. And while your circumstances may have changed in the blink of an eye, know that your attitude can change your outcome in the blink of an eye as well.
Sending much love and light
