In the wise words of Wayne Dyer, 'Change the way you look at things, and the things you look at change.' We all have habitual ways of looking at the world, and it is good to ask yourself how those ways are working for you. Are there some views you could change that might serve you better?
We have a tendency to focus on what's wrong in our lives, instead of what's right.
Dr Jeffrey Rediger wisely stated, 'There's nothing wrong with you that can't be fixed by what is right about you'.
Here I am on my bike, less than a year after surgery. Hooray! I'm living life; cycling, hiking, practicing yoga, playing with friends, oh, and lots of meditation to keep me on my path - mindful of the messages I tell myself. No matter that I'm not riding as far as I used to, that may or may not come. But the gratitude is present; just getting to spin on my bike, next to my pals is worth celebrating.
My advise? As hard as it is sometimes; focus on what you can do, not on what you can't do. Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and focus on what could go right.
