“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”
Written a few years ago when I was first diagnosed……
…I believe I cannot become healthy by doing the same things I did to help me get sick. If I do the same things as I have always done I will become worse. It is the same as continually banging one’s head on the wall and wondering why it hurts this time just as it did all the other times. More of the same thing will lead to the same or similar results and I will probably get more sick. It’s logical but it has taken me sometime to get here!
What I have been doing…eating…being…has led me to where I am now, so carrying on in the same old way is no longer a healthy option.
I have come to realise that this illness wasn’t done to me. Ok, I may have something in my genetic coding, but, by my choices, actions and inactions, I have created my body, my mind, my spirit and my overall health.
I have thought my thoughts and believed my beliefs and acted upon them. I have eaten my lovely food and drunk my drink – mostly champagne and good wine!. I have either exercised hard, over exercised or not exercised at all for long periods. I have worried out all my worries and agonised over my anxieties. I have literally made me what I am.
This is the reason I had to make big changes in all aspects of my life, body, mind and spirit. I am going to start again and see if I can do better. It’s time to start recreating!
