I’m always one for a list, and this one I first saw on the amazing Jena Strong post, and followed it back to http://www.listsandletters.com – there is something about change that frightens folks, when I see it as the opportunity to get rid of the old ways and instil some better ways of living…..so here’s my list…..
1. I’m now going through the last change in my reproductive life – yes Menopause. Brought on by the loss of both my ovaries, my uterus and a couple of masses that grew up out and all over. This is the biggest change I’ve ever gone through – including puberty. This is a one way journey which I will emerge from stronger, healthier, and full of life.
2. I’ve given myself the freedom to turn off the negative voice, to no longer heed it’s dire warnings. Living without the fear of failure, is something I need to change in myself, and accept that the only way I do learn is to fail, and by picking myself up and continuing, only then will I know I’m actually a winner….confused????
3.By daring to open myself up to others, and to be able to give compassion and empathy, without depleting myself in the process. A huge ask I know, but one that I’m learning can help and be helpful to so many people.
