Dream the Impossible
Your attitude pretty much sets up the way your life will go. For example, if I had the attitude that I would never, ever get better I would still be in a wheelchair. Worst yet, I would be lying in bed wishing I had the strength to use a wheelchair thinking it is an impossible dream.
Instead the impossible dream I choose to create was based on two facts I knew to my soul were true: 1. I am a beloved child of God; 2. I am a healthy child of God. My attitude was and is “it’s just for now” that I feel awful and unhealthy. I went to bed with the idea: tomorrow, I will wake up and be able to live with joy in my heart, because I am a healthy beloved child of God.
I also did what I could to reclaim my health. 1. Had a support team that consisted of God, my family, friends, doctors and ME. If I wasn’t part of the support team and I let everyone do for me instead of participating in my own medical choices; then I felt I would have been giving control to others instead of God and me. Giving away my power to others is not an option. 2. I followed the medical treatment that was prescribed to me. There was no sense in spending money on doctor appointments, if I were not going to follow the protocol to wellness. I didn’t follow blindly, I asked questions, did research and was an active participate in the final decisions. 3. Prayed daily; on my bad days I prayed hourly.
It was a long slow journey (at least it was to me as I was living it), but I am here today sitting here writing this post with joy in my heart because I am a healthy beloved child of God. Each night I look forward to tomorrow, because I can’t wait to see what else I can do, how far I can walk and how much joy I can spread. I created the impossible dream, because I let myself be positive, be hopeful, and be strong until my vision of myself became reality.
What is your impossible dream? What attitude have you adopted to create this so-called impossible dream?
Life is good! God is great! All is right in my world!
