Not every battle can be won whether it is with yourself or someone else, but you can choose how those battles are won internally. What I mean by this is that there will be some of us that are dealing with illness or injury, and there may be no chance for it to get better, even after trying numerous things to heal it. But we can choose how we look at the outcome.
For Five weeks now I have been following the Ketogenic diet to help me with my seizures, throughout the five weeks I have had nine seizures which since having a brain surgery in 2013 to help stop them is not out of the ordinary, but not what I expected either. When I received my blood work back, my cholesterol had shot up 100 points from 160 to 260, the majority of that number being my LDL levels ( the bad cholesterol ) I couldn’t believe it! I was eating all of the right fats, and logging everything to a T, but nonetheless, that’s what came back.
My point in telling you all of this is that, first I was shocked, but then I looked at the situation. My brain has been like this for 27 years, and I have Hydrocephalus and Cerebral palsy on top of that, why would I want to create an entirely new problem for myself? I know the ins and outs of my brain, I don’t want to have to learn the ins and outs of my heart. I’m happy that I am alive, and I am grateful for what I was given. I accept all of this, and I will continue to thrive as I have over the past 36 years.
My message to you today is this, battles within us, and around us are sometimes lost, but they can be thought about with an open heart, and open mind, and that will allow you to see those battles that were once believed to be lost as battles can be won. Change the way you look at things and the way you look at things changes.
Be grateful for your mess, and be grateful for everything else too. Accept the things you can’t change, and move forward with an open mind with the things that you can.
Keep on keeping on,
