It is NEVER too late for change. No matter where you are in time, no matter what has happened in the past, no matter the circumstances that you are in currently YOU have the power to CHANGE YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW!
In THIS moment it where all life is being lived! You are not at this present moment living yesterday... and you are not at this present moment living tomorrow! That gives you the opportunity to RIGHT NOW change your life and become who you WANT to be!
My own life has changed unrecognisably since I began following this principle. I like you have also had my share of trials and tribulations and have received multiple diagnosis of chronic health conditions including Crohn's disease, IBS, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Advanced Degenerative Disc Disease in my lower back, and PTSD as well as Endometriosis which resulted in a full hysterectomy plunging me into surgical menopause - which despite the HRT caused depression & anxiety.
5 years ago I was on a walking stick barely able to get out of bed, I was depressed, anxious, unhealthy, overweight, in pain both physically and emotionally and had lost all zest for life. I had lost all passion to follow my dreams and I was ready to give in.
It was then that I discovered a book that changed my life completely. It was called 'You Can Heal Your Life" by the magnificent Louise Hay. Louise taught me that my thoughts and my words shaped my life and that I had the power in each and every moment to choose a better future for myself. And so began my journey of self discovery, a journey which continues to this day.
Fast forward to now and I have lost over 15kgs, I am off the walking stick and am walking 3-10km every day (depending on time and weather) I eat a gluten, dairy, processed sugar free diet which has settled the IBS & Fibromyalgia (providing I don't cheat hahah) and it has been a loooong time since I had a Crohns flare. The anxiety & depression can come and go but is nowhere near as debilitating as it once was and I have an incredible toolbox to draw from in order to help sooth & uplift myself. I have cultivated a strong relationship with myself and have included self care practices into my daily routine which have in turn increased my self worth and self love. I have completely changed my appearance and no longer hide behind jeans and a black t-shirt choosing instead to wear the clothes I have always WANTED to wear! I am also chasing my dreams including that of creating my own Life Coaching Business & following my music career all the way to Ireland!! Most importantly, each and every day I chose to bring myself back to the present moment and remember that I can choose to fall back into the old patterns or create the life I WANT to live. It is not always easy... but it IS worth it!
Its not just me...
I am enormously blessed on a daily basis to be surrounded by truly courageous people. Men and women who despite having been through some of the most challenging situations life has to offer and having endured some of the most unthinkable traumas choose to focus on the NOW and what can be done to improve their quality of life.
One is my best friend who has lived through more than her fair share of ordeals. Her dream was to become a Marriage Celebrant however situations occurred that prevented her from being able to follow that path.
Remarkably, despite her past traumas, her health challenges (Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Scoliosis, Arthritis, Depression) and her circumstance, at 66 years of age she has COMPLETELY changed her life simply by making the decision to live in the present moment and move in that moment towards a brighter future. She has lost over 10kg, changed the way she dresses from track pants and jumpers to dresses, skirts, & pant suits, changed her hairstyle (she looks STUNNING) completely emptied her house of all of the outdated & unwanted possessions & clutter; filling it instead with all of the gorgeous things she WANTS to surround herself with and has recently started her own business as a registered Marriage Celebrant and I couldn't be more proud of her!
Another of my very special friends has also completely changed his life at 62 years of age!
After his marriage ended he had found himself living with his mother, overweight due to emotional eating, in a job that he felt no passion for, depressed and resigned to his fate as a bachelor. He had also many years earlier had quadruple heart bypass...
In 3 short months following a conversation we had about living in the now and the ability to change your life at any time, he now has his own apartment whom he shares with the love of his life, he has lost over 10kg (and counting), he has changed his appearance completely - choosing suits over worn out work pants - eats a healthy diet and exercises daily, speaks more positively, has started his own company and is in the midst of growing it so that he can give up his day job and keep following his passion.
These are just some examples of how IT IS NEVER TOO LATE to become the person YOU want to be!!! You can change your life RIGHT NOW in THIS moment!
